The volume on Silicon Carbide and Related Materials is divided into 10 chapters ranging from “Bulk growth” to “Device and application”. The reports demonstrate the technical and scientific advances in the related areas: 150 mm 4H-SiC wafers are now commercially available, a significant improvement of the carrier lifetime (up to 35 ms) for n-type SiC epi-layers has been achieved, SiC diodes have a large market share in server and telecom power applications requiring the maximum efficiency, and a variety of 1- cm2, 15 kV class bipolar devices have been demonstrated, including PN Diodes, IGBTs and GTO. In general, the number of contributions devoted to application of SiC and related materials, GaN and solid solutions based on this material, and graphene is steadily increasing compared to the 2011 edition.

This book contains some 32 peer reviewed papers on applications of nanotechnology in energy and environment. Some of the papers describe the development of nanoparticle-based solar cells, new technique for decomposing organic pollutant in water and, using nanotechnology in oil recovery especially for heavy oil lifting. Synthesis, characterizations, and applications of nanomaterial are also discussed. This book will be a good reference for researchers in the corresponding field.

Description: Interest in the phenomenon of superplasticity has been increasing steadily, both from the viewpoint of fundamental scientific understanding as well as of industrial application. The scope of superplasticity has also broadened materials-wise, and now includes, in addition to metals: intermetallics, ceramics, bulk metallic glasses, nanostructured materials and composites. The objective of this special collection was to provide an international forum through which to gather up-to-date knowledge and information on a wide range of topics and to encourage further developments in superplasticity. Over 64 peer-reviewed papers have been selected for publication.
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
The volume is divided into the following chapters: Mechanisms of Superplasticity, Superplastic Materials, Design, Testing and Modelling, Processing, Industrial Applications. Altogether, the contents constitute a timely and invaluable guide to the state-of-the-art of superplasticity.

This Special Topic Volume is a result of the collaboration of fifty six academics from the international scientific community; each an expert in his respective field of research. The work presents a thorough coverage of various photocatalytic materials and surfaces, together with their applications in environmental clean-up and hydrogen production. It offers a comprehensive picture of processes, related to photocatalysis, that have posed scientific and technological challenges in this area. One finds here the latest in-depth coverage of nanomaterials, nano-composites, and the chemical, physical and engineering aspects of photocatalytic materials application in environmental and energy applications.
