Silicon Carbide (SiC), Gallium Nitride (GaN) and Diamond are examples of wide-bandgap semiconductors having chemical, electrical and optical properties which make them very attractive for the fabrication of high-power and high-frequency electronic devices, as well as light-emitters and sensors which have to operate under harsh conditions.

Description: The world production of primary and recycled aluminum continues to increase and, over the past twenty years, has risen from ~15 Mt/y in 1985 to ~32 Mt/y in 2005. The main consumers are transportation, beverage and other packaging, and building construction. The global primary aluminum production has been growing by about 2-3% per year. However, growth rates over the last decade have been much higher. In particular, during the past five years, China has played a critical role in aluminum production and has gone through a dramatic period of growth.

The last five decades have seen an explosion of interest in exploring the possibilities of new materials for industrial and commercial applications. Materials Technology is now recognized as being one of the most important factors driving the development and growth of a nation’s economy. The sciences of design, processing, manufacturing and materials utilization are crucial elements contributing to the growth of new industries. The need for new discoveries in Materials Science has encouraged scientists from around the world to meet regularly and to discuss the latest advances and innovations.

Description: The compilation, 'Advanced Materials and Technologies', explores current research efforts and progress in the design and improvement of the performance of structural and functional materials. In particular, the book deals with the relationship between a material’s production route, its chemical and phase compositions and microstructure on the one hand; and their influence upon every aspect of a wide range of its properties on the other hand: as well as the various factors which affect the efficiency of applied advanced technologies. Special attention is paid to nanostructures and to properties governed by phenomena at the nano- and/or micro-scale.

The Industrial Revolution showed that the development and improvement of new materials and functions could bring about social change, and benefit human society. However, one can be forgiven for feeling that more recent materials research, particularly in the domain of metals, has focused only upon individual elemental characteristics and narrow specialty fields, and that the original vision of materials research has thus been lost.
