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.

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.
