This book comprises state-of-the–art reviews written by acknowledged experts who are active in sintering science.
It includes seven invited reviews by authors hailing from five countries: J-M.Chaix (France) discusses quantitative aspects of the microstructures and modeling of sintering; with the technical aspects of image-analysis - including that of nanostructured materials - adding extra value. Z.S. Nikolic (Serbia) provides a theoretical review of the simulation of liquid-phase sintering, particularly under microgravity conditions, and extensively and critically reviews the results reported in the sintering literature. A.L. Lisovsky (Ukraine) opens up the vista of deconsolidation of polycrystalline skeletons in sintered composite materials, and deals with systems having more than one refractory solid phase, and with nanodispersed composite materials. G.S. Upadhyaya ( India) reviews the Samsonov model for the electronic mechanism of sintering, and its relevance; pointing out that, although the model is a qualitative one, it has great utility as a predictive tool and that various case-studies drawn from real multi-phase material systems are a testimony to the value of Samsonov’s model.

Description: The aim of this special volume is to give an overview of the historical background and present status of eco-materials processing and design for materials research, and to foresee future trends in the field. Serious global and environmental problems have led the materials manufacturing industries to monitor closely the formation and accumulation of carbon dioxide and other deleterious gases in the atmosphere, as well to reduce raw materials use and energy consumption and limit other factors which reflect the environmental impact of the industry.

The aim of this special collection was to provide an opportunity for companies, academic institutions and government research agencies to share, in a collaborative manner, their new research and development work.The main focus was light metals and their applications.
It is to be noted that there was a significant number of papers related to titanium research: due to the extended range of applications of titanium components and the growth in end-user demands for affordable manufacturing. As a result, the collection is truly representative of the three light metals: aluminium, magnesium and titanium; with a similar number of papers concerning each metal.

Description: Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters BCI (WoS).
This special-topic volume, Advances in Electronic Materials, covers various fields of materials research such as silicon, silicon-germanium hetero-structures, high-k materials, III-V semiconductor alloys and organic materials, as well as nano-structures for spintronics and photovoltaics. It begins with a brief summary of the formative years of microelectronics; now the keystone of information technology.
The latter remains one of the most important global technologies, and is an extremely complex subject-area. Although electronic materials are primarily associated with computers, the internet and mobile telephones, they are used in many other applications which improve our overall quality of life. The progress made in traditional scientific fields now often depends upon new developments in electronic materials.
