Description: Booming economic development in Asia, particularly of the leading manufacturing industries which produce flat-panel displays, communication-devics, computers and other products in the micro/nano field has stimulated an intense research effort in universities, development-oriented institutions and industrial corporations. Such knowledge-based industries have been enjoying an immense growth-potential and thus there is an urgent need for a solid forum for the exchange of various scientific, technical and management aspects ranging across the entire spectrum of society.

This special-topic volume‚ Advances in Light-Emitting Materials’, makes an important contribution to the field of silicon and III-nitride semiconductors. It begins with a brief history of visible-light emitting diodes. However, silicon is currently expanding from micro-electronics and into photonics. Due to its unsuitable band-gap, it has not previously been the material-of-choice for opto-electronic integration. That is now beginning to change and silicon devices have been developed which have the capability to emit, modulate, guide and detect light and which can be combined with microelectronics to form electronic and photonic integrated circuits.

Description: Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
This special collection comprises 175 peer-reviewed articles on “Nanomaterials by Severe Plastic Deformation”. This large number of papers is 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. In fact, this community is growing, and the total number of articles in this edition is larger than that in the 2006 edition. The fact that the authors hail from 27 countries also reflects the truly world-wide activity in this field.

Description: Nanostructured materials, in which the structural features (e.g., grains and/or domains separated by low-angle grain boundaries) are smaller than 100nm in at least one dimension, have attracted worldwide research interest for more than a decade because of their unique properties. For example, the combination of high strength with high ductility has been reported for some nanostructured metals and alloys: this is a rare, if not impossible, combination of mechanical properties for coarse-grained metals and alloys. Among the many techniques available for producing nanostructured materials, severe plastic deformation (SPD) is the most popular and most rapidly developing one.
