Carbon Fibers and Their Composites (MATERIALS ENGINEERING)
A incredible wealth of information regarding virtually everything directly related to carbon fiber manufacturing. Not for lightweights, this book give everything from history of carbon fiber to contemporary production methods. So much in depth information, one could start making educated decisions for starting their own plant.

How did Morgan find the time to write this book? It shows the huge range of research on carbon fibers, along with an equally diverse variety of industrial applications.

At the research level, numerous forms of carbon exist. More than just the simple graphite and diamond that all the elementary texts on materials mention. Most prominent of the other forms is of course C60, the buckyball, more formally known as fullerene. Related to these forms are the means of production. Including chemical vapour deposition and the use of polymeric precursors. The book has several chapters on synthesis. Covering all the current major economic means of doing so.

There is even mention of safety aspects when running a carbon fiber plant. Not the least of which is because you typically use cyanogen compounds.

For structural analysis, there is a general mention of long standing crystallographic techniques, like the powder method. Plus recent ideas like X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy or FTIR spectroscopy.

Many firms are listed, that use carbon fibers. Some very obscure, like XXsys Technologies of San Diego. That makes jackets out of these, to wrap around freeway support columns. Reinforcing them in California, because of earthquakes.
