Description: The field of crystal growth has developed steadily with the rapid progress in microelectronics. The purpose of this book is to present a survey of the most recent results related to this subject area. The book will serve as both an up-to-date review for experts and as a reference work on crystal growth for younger scientists and for those who wish to keep track of the advances and technological trends in the field.

Description: For more then one century it has been observed that stress corrosion cracking (SCC) and corrosion fatigue (CF) corresponds to synergetic effects between corrosion and mechanics. Researchers and engineers have tried to translate such effects through empirical damage laws, in particular to predict crack velocities in metallic materials for the nuclear, aeronautical and chemical industries. Nevertheless the precise nature of these synergetic effects is still difficult to determine and quantify, mainly because of the localization of the damage events.
One of the objective of the current publication is to review in details what is known about these deleterious synergetic effects which lead to SCC and CF. The matter of the book clearly corresponds to an interdisciplinary field. Bases in materials science, corrosion, theory of dislocations and chemistry of surfaces are supposed to be known, even if some elements will be briefly introduced.

Description: The study of defects in semiconductors has never been independent of the progress in semiconductor technology. With rapid development in semiconductor device technology, novel types of defects as well as very peculiar behavior of defects in semiconductors have been found one after another. New subjects in the basic study of defects have often been arisen from experiences in the practical field. Great progress has also been achieved in device production technology on the basis of the knowledge clarified in the basic field.

Description: In recent years the particular significance of Materials Science and Technology has been generally accepted in the industrial countries. The use of materials in different applications is limited due to their natural tendency to react with their environment, i.e. corrosion. Since corrosion is typically an electrochemical phenomenon, different electrochemical methods form the scientific basis of corrosion research.
