Description: This volume documents the latest understanding of many topics of current interest in the science and technology of defects in semiconductors. The investigation of defects in semiconductors is a little different to that in other fields of materials science: in order to observe defects in semiconductors and elucidate their physical nature, a very wide range of tools and techniques has been introduced or created; thanks to the inventive ideas of the researchers. This work clearly reflects the lively state of defect investigation in semiconductors.

The topics covered by this book include high-speed machining and micro-cutting related fields, including mechanisms of machining, modeling and simulation of machining processes, machine tools, cutting tools, CAD/CAM, surface integrity of machining processes, difficult-to-machine materials and non-traditional machining technologies. This book provides a valuable reference source for researchers, in the high-speed machining field, who wish to understand further the underlying mechanisms and thus be able to create new and practical machine-tool and cutting-tool technologies. It should also be particularly useful to practising engineers, in the fields of high-speed machining and mechanical micro-cutting, who are responsible for maintaining efficient and effective operations.

In recent years, research and development has advanced greatly. Materials made using nanoscale components add new functional and structural properties: yielding nanocomposites and opening up many applications. Such nanocomposites are of great importance for a multitude of industrial uses and attract much research interest. This special issue on Functional Nanocomposite Materials is a collection of twelve papers whose contributors are at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Tsinghua University, the University of Science and Technology of Beijing, the Chinese Academy of Sciences Shenzhen Institute of Advanced Technology, the Shenzhen Academy of Aerospace Technology, the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology and Georgia Institute of Technology. From these papers, readers can glean new research ideas in nanocomposite materials, as well as sense the quality of the work now going on; especially in the region of east Asia.

Description: The aim of this special collection of peer-reviewed papers is to present recent progress in crystal growth, in the characterization and control of material properties, as well as in other basic research issues concerning silicon carbide (SiC) and other wide-bandgap semiconductors such as group-III nitrides and diamond. The latest research results relevant to wafer production processes, device fabrication technologies and device applications are discussed. These included the latest results in the development and commercialization of advanced devices and circuits used for energy saving, high-voltage switching, high-frequency high-power amplification and high-temperature operation. Work on the growth, characterization and device exploitation of epitaxial graphene was also covered. Evolving industrial products and capabilities were also highlighted.

Description: The contents of this book pay particular attention to the different length-scales (macro, micro and nano) as related to obtaining a deeper understanding of the structure-property relationships of polymeric nanocomposite materials. They cover major findings and observations related to the morphological, interfacial, processing response, physical and thermophysical properties of multiphase polymers and polymer composite systems: from macro to nano length-scales. The presentation is organised around three areas: Multiscale modelling and simulation - Design and advanced characterisation - Processing, application and recycling.
