The rare earth elements and compounds have unique spectroscopic, magnetic and chemical properties. These materials not only provide interesting windows into many aspects of science but are being used in an ever increasing number of strategic applications, particularly in the high growth sectors of world economics such as electronics, environmental protection (catalysis), magnets, nuclear medicine therapy and agriculture.

Description: Metastable and Nanocrystalline Materials offer enormous technological potential and, for this reason, they are the subject of intense world-wide research.
Among the various topics covered in the present volume are the synthesis and processing of materials using mechanical alloying, grinding, mechanosynthesis and mechanochemistry; the structural characterisation of nanophase materials and the structural evolution caused by mechanical treatments; the magnetic and mechanical properties of nanocrystalline materials; and the basic mechanisms of fabrication processes.

Description: The present book sums up the most recent advances in the investigation of nanocrystallization. Many new nanocrystalline materials with promising magnetic and mechanical properties have been developed. For example, soft-magnetic nanocrystalline Fe-based alloys, hard-soft nanocrystalline Fe/FeNdB-type magnets and light Al-based nanostructures with attractive mechanical properties.

The papers of this second conference summarize the progress made in three major target areas; (1) to identify new phenomena in superplasticity, (2) to extend superplasticity research into the atomistic level of grain boundary analysis and (3) to find ways of enhancing collaboration between scientists and industrial engineers.

This publication contains the proceedings of the sixth Latin-American Workshop on "Magnetism, Magnetic Materials and their Applications". The 85 peer-reviewed academic and technical papers cover a wide spectrum of the many interesting aspects of this subject. The contents are grouped under the headings: fundamental properties, thin films and magneto-optics, manganites and oxides, magneto-resistance and magneto-impedance, hard magnets, low temperature magnetism, ferrites and steels, and fluids and particles.

Description: The use of laser science and technology in the development of materials has made significant progress due to the flexibility of control of the beam's interaction, with regard to wavelength, energy-density and interaction time, and the wide choice of interaction environments. It is difficult to think of any field of science where lasers have not left their mark in improving material properties and behaviour, or in widening material applications. Lasers have not been slow to find important uses in fields ranging from defence to medical science. Many of these aspects are discussed in this volume, by experts in the relevant field.

Description: The 77 papers of the Proceedings of the 10th International Symposium on Ultrafast Phenomena in Semiconductors cover a broad range of rapid dynamic processes in semiconductors and high-Tc superconductors. The latest achievements in the understanding of low-dimensional structures, quantum transport and tunneling, high-speed electronics and photonics, chaos and noise, microwave and infrared radiation generation, and microdevices are presented.

Description: Continuing the scope of the preceding Conferences on Intergranular and Interphase Boundaries in Materials, the present conference focused on the atomic-level modeling of interfaces, the structural and chemical characterization of internal interfaces, on their thermodynamic, kinetic, mechanical, electrical, magnetic behavior and high-Tc superconductivity, and on the application of current knowledge to the design of polycrystalline materials having improved properties. Particular attention was paid to non-equilibrium segregation in irradiated materials.
