Description: Materials processing is an important and essential step in the production of useful products, and is one of the major wealth-generating activities. With the increasing demand for the production of high precision, high integrity and high density devices and systems in modern life, materials processing has become more important than ever before. Following on from the previous eight publications in the series, “Asia-Pacific Conference on Materials Processing”, this volume presents the latest developments in this field, and a new understanding of the underlying mechanisms.

Nanoscience is revolutionizing the design of medical devices, tissue scaffolding and drug-delivery systems. New discoveries regarding nano-system, made in other research areas, have opened up the possibility of using them in biomedicine. However, such nanoscience and its possibilities, which sometimes border on science fiction, have to be kept in perspective so as not to lose sight of the limitations with respect to safety that applications within the human body impose.

Description: This special collection on Advanced Measurement and Test is dedicated to the electronic testing of devices, boards and systems and covers the complete cycle: from design verification, design-for-testing, design-for-manufacturing, silicon debug, manufacturing test, system test, diagnosis, failure analysis and back to process and design improvement. Design, testing and yield professionals were invited to confront the challenges which the industry faces, and to learn how these challenges are being addressed by the combined efforts of academia, design tool and equipment suppliers, designers and test engineers.

Description: Coating technology has made great strides during recent years. The properties of surface layers determine the function and quality of entire components. Thus, it is essential to obtain information concerning the development and functionality of the topmost layers. The beneficial effect of coating technology can be observed in many manufacturing fields, where it solves problems such as wear, corrosion, erosion, electrical contact, etc. Even decoration falls under this heading.

Description: The main purpose of this special collection was to gather together up-to-date knowledge from scientists, researchers and technologists in order to review the status of processing technologies, materials development, emerging applications and economics/affordability issues.
The resultant scope is necessarily broad: contributors who are involved in titanium production technology, vapor, solid and liquid titanium processing/post-processing, alloy development, microstructure/property enhancement, modeling and simulation, and applications and market development were invited to participate. The diverse mix of papers presented here reflects the breadth of activity aimed at the cost-affordable use of titanium in emerging applications. The editors’ opening overview paper attempts to present the broad sweep of present and projected titanium cost-reduction schemes; in both titanium production and in subsequent processing. What is made particularly clear is that the impetus, in broadening markets, for titanium is very dependent upon cost reduction; particularly in cost-sensitive industries such as automobile production.
