The collection shows the importance of neutron and synchrotron radiation in the evaluation of mechanical stresses. It gathers the current knowledge from those concerned with the mechanical stress evaluation of materials and components using neutron and synchrotron radiation. It also gives an interesting "snap-shot" of progress in the field. The wide array contributions focus on the following key topics: Stress evaluation using neutrons, synchrotron radiation and X-rays; Development of measurement methods and instrumentation; Material processing and residual stresses; The influence of residual stresses on the physical and mechanical properties of materials and components; Measurement and assessment of residual micro-stresses and intergranular stresses; Residual strains and stresses in complex materials (e.g. multi-phase and biomaterials); Industrial applications of residual stress analysis using neutrons, synchrotron radiation and X-rays; and Complementary techniques for residual stress measurements.

The development of photovoltaic technology is expected to solve problems related to energy shortages and environmental pollution caused by the use of fossil fuels. Dye-sensitizedsolar cells (DSSCs) are promising next-generation alternatives to conventional silicon-based photovoltaic devices owing to their low manufacturing cost and potentially high conversion efficiency. This special topic volume addresses recent advances in the research on dye-sensitized solar cells. The focus of this special topic volume is on materials development (sensitizers, nanostructured oxide films, and electrolyte), but commercialization. This work illustrates a new pathway to achieve highly efficient DSSCs for practical applications.
