Metastable and Nanostructured Materials II
The Second Workshop on Metastable and Nanostructured Materials was held in Iguaçu Falls, Paraná State, Brazil, from August 28th to 29th, 2003. Following the successful First Workshop organized in 2001, II NANOMAT was organized in order to provide another Forum for discussions on Metastable and Nanostructured Materials. This main purpose of the Workshop was fully achieved, with the participation of researchers from countries both near and far: Argentina, Brazil, England, France, Japan, Mexico, Russia, Turkey and the USA
Of the papers presented at the Workshop, 16 have been selected, following peer review, for publication in these Proceedings and in the Journal of Metastable and Nanocrystalline Materials. The selected papers cover a wide range of topics related to the synthesis, processing, characterization and properties of materials such as glassy alloys, amorphous alloys, metallic alloys, ionic conducting metallic glasses, magnetic materials, core-shell nanoparticles, ceramic nanopowders, melt-spun metallic ribbons and polymer nanocomposites.
