This volume contains the Proceedings (64 selected refereed papers) of the 6th Japanese-Mediterranean Workshop on Applied Electromagnetic Engineering for Magnetic Superconducting and Nanomaterials (JAPMED’6), organized in Bucharest, Romania, during July 27-29th 2009. This Workshop represented a landmark in the development of materials, manufacturing and electrical engineering; providing a forum for specialists from the universities, research centers and industries of many countries to establish links, share knowledge and experience and encourage cross-fertilization of new ideas and developments in design, analysis, novel-material utilization and optimisation techniques in the areas of applied electromagnetics. Also covered was the manufacturing of advanced materials from the macro-, to the nano-scale and their industrial application in modern technologies involving nanotechnology, electricity/electronics, superconductivity, electromagnetic engineering, transportation, bioengineering, energy and the environment.
The 200 peer-reviewed articles in this “Nanomaterials by Severe Plastic Deformation” special collection are a convincing demonstration of the relevance of bulk ultrafine grained and nanostructured materials, produced by severe plastic deformation, to a wide range of researchers and engineers., The total number of articles in this edition, larger than that in the 2008 edition, shows that this community is, in fact, growing. The coverage includes all aspects of NanoSPD: Principles of SPD Processing, Microstructural Evolution and Grain Refinement, Mechanical Properties of SPD Materials, Functional and other Properties of SPD Materials, Innovation and Applications.
The aim of this special collection is to present recent progress made, and reflect current ideas, in research fields where positron and positronium are involved. The contents cover a wide range of positron-related research topics; including both fundamental (theoretical calculations, radiation chemistry, hyperfine interactions, positronium physics and chemistry) and applied (metal, polymer, thin film and other materials, development of experimental techniques) aspects.
The preparation and characterization of novel materials having unique optical, electronic and electrical properties are among the most important research activities.
This work comprises eight contributions from leading experts on the topic of the mechanical behaviour of materials. The research themes described in this special volume range from surface forces, surface energies and adhesion to the indentation and nano-indentation of solids and fracture waves in glasses to spectroscopic studies of biological cells.
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
This Special Topic Volume constitutes the contributions of thirty-nine experts from the international scientific community who are involved in this field of research. It covers thoroughly some of the latest applications of polymers and nano-materials to solar-cells, fuel cells, catalysis, coatings, ion-exchange and sensors. It presents an up-to-date and in-depth coverage of the chemistry, physics, materials science and engineering applications of polymers and nano-materials. This remarkable cooperation of distinguished experts has resulted in a comprehensive review of the subject.
