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.

Description: The purpose of this monograph is to provide a concise, up-to-date reference on these important biomaterials. Engineered materials play a critical role in modern biomedical applications, and crystalline ceramics (as well as the chemically-related, non-crystalline glasses) are finding increasingly wide uses.

These volumes of Materials Science Forum contain selected papers presented at the Sixth International Symposium on Electrochemical Methods in Corrosion Research.
The focal points was the industrial application of electrochemical methods for corrosion testing and monitoring as well as for corrosion prediction, prevention and control. Special emphasis was placed on the availability and reliability of test methods for improving the quality of metallic materials and their industrial applicability, as well as on the equipment to be used to this end. Nevertheless, fundamental research was also covered by a large number of papers.

The technology of microalloying is now, at the end of the 20th century, widely accepted due to the attractive balance of properties which is achievable with the correct control of the interaction between steel chemistry and processing parameters. Microalloying is applied to a broad spectrum of products and has two main goals: to improve the mechanical properties and to save costs.

Modern Technology depends upon modern materials. Life as we know it would hardly be possible without the progress that has been made in cutting edge materials science. This is true of both the various theoretical aspects and of the practical engineering applications.

The EPDIC-5 Proceedings present the latest papers in this successful series of European Conferences on Powder Diffraction. They demonstrate the evergrowing interest from materials scientists, physicists, chemists, geologists - both industrial and academic- all having a direct interest in the practical application of this powerful and non-destructive method of analysis.
Part 1 comprises some 75 contributions, with sections on Methodological Developments, Development of Instruments and Techniques, Software, Synchrotron and Neutron Diffraction describing the latest ideas in these fields. Subjects such as Microstructure of Materials, Texture, Quantitative Phase Analysis and Crystal Structure Determination are also addressed; as in previous editions of these conference proceedings. An important step forward in materials analysis is now occurring: scientists and engineers are becoming more and more conscious of the fact that, by using these techniques, it is possible to obtain quantitative information from the same set of measurements, of material characteristics, that determine material properties. This advance has been made possible thanks to recent instrumental developments, such as the X-ray lens -a bundle of glass capillaries- and single or double X-ray mirrors. A very useful tool, that is extensively applied -as described in a sequence of some 15 contributions-, is the in-situ (i.e. time resolved) powder diffraction technique which has resulted from the ample availability of position sensitive detectors.
