Description: Because of their many superior properties, including a wide band-gap and high breakdown field, which are different to those of conventional semiconductors such as Si and GaAs, compounds such as SiC, III-Nitrides and related materials are currently attracting increasing attention and are being targeted as possible solutions in a variety of problematic fields of electronic application: including high temperature, high power, radiation-resistant and microwave use.

Description: The II International Materials Symposium is a scientific forum which discusses advances in the science and technology of materials, and is organized by the Portuguese Materials Society. The II International Materials Symposium followed a series of bi-annual national and international conferences that began 20 years ago and has became, since 2001, an international forum where scientists, engineers and technologists working in the fields of Materials Science and Engineering discuss their recent results and exchange ideas and information.

These proceedings, PROGRESS IN ADVANCED MATERIALS AND PROCESSES, include selected papers which were presented at the Fifth Yugoslav Materials Research Society Conference (Yu-MRS Meeting), held in Herceg Novi, Yugoslavia, September 15-19th, 2003. The previous four conferences were also held there, and the Yugoslav Materials Research Society was formed as a non-governmental, non-profit, scientific association, whose main goals and tasks are to encourage creativity in materials science and engineering, to achieve the harmonic coordination of these fields in Serbia and Montenegro, and to link these researches to analogous activities carried out worldwide; in order to incorporate them into international – even global - programs. Materials science and engineering involve the acquisition of knowledge concerning the synthesis and processing of materials, their composition and structure, properties and behaviour, characteristics and potential, and their application in devices, machines, consumer units and other finished products. Our economic prosperity, quality of life and hopes for a healthy environment are closely connected with improvements in existing products and the development of new ones together with their associated processing technologies.

Superplastic forming (SPF) has come a long way from its relatively recent history of being of interest only to the aerospace and aeronautical industries, and has made rapid inroads into applications in the automotive, rail, architectural, sports, dental and entertainment sectors.

Description: There is no doubt that, when it comes to the study of the structures and defects of materials, there is presently no technique that rivals positron annihilation. The increasing demands for higher accuracy and reliability provide a constant stimulus to the field, and the present work presents the newest and most important scientific discoveries made in the field of positron annihilation.

X-ray powder diffraction is a long-established and invaluable technique which is widely applied to the characterization of crystalline materials. The method has traditionally been used for phase identification, quantitative analysis and for the determination of structural imperfections. In recent years however, its use has been extended into exciting new areas such as the extraction of three-dimensional microstructural properties.

The trend towards the integration of modeling, analysis and design tools, which began in the 1990s, is now well underway, and it is becoming increasingly evident that formerly disparate engineering functions, such as stress analysis, fracture mechanics, elasticity and vibration analysis, will continue to move closer together, as seamlessly integrated computational design tools evolve.  The series of Modern Practice in Stress and Vibration Analysis conferences has always reflected this alliance, with its tradition of encouraging specialist contributions to the development and enhanced application of powerful numerical methods; in conjunction with seminal papers on new techniques in experimental mechanics.

Ecomaterials, or "Green Materials", are those designed so as to minimize their environmental impact, while still maintaining or even increasing the desired operational performance. Ecomaterials research is an interdisciplinary field where scientists and engineers with backgrounds in both chemistry, and in materials such as metals, ceramics, polymers, and carbon, are involved in raising the environmental consciousness of industry and in motivating ecological research. This volume contains the papers presented during the fourth international symposium on ecomaterials processing and design, which was held on February 4-6, 2003 in Kangnung, Korea.
