The papers contained herein cover the most important and timely issues in the field of “Gettering and Defect Engineering in Semiconductor Technology”, ranging from the theoretical analysis of defect problems to practical engineering solutions, with the emphasis on Si-based materials. Apart from the traditional topics of defect and materials engineering, characterization, modeling and simulation, and the co-integration of various material classes, topics such as materials for solar cells and photonics are discussed. Defects in graphene and in nanocrystals and nanowires are also treated, making this a very up-to-date survey of the field.

Attention is focused here on the materials group known as “smart” e.g. Shape Memory Alloys (SMA) and piezoelectrics. The Department of Process Control at the University of Science and Technology carries out leading research in the general area of control engineering. Within this field, scientists from the department also work on the implementation of control theory in materials processing; especially with regard to influencing material properties and optimizing manufacturing processes. Instead of exploiting the principles of control theory for materials use, some researchers use materials-related phenomena for control purposes. The present work offers an informative introduction to this interesting field.

Description: This special issue of “Solid State Phenomena” documents some novel experimental and theoretical approaches applied to fascinating materials. Motivated by the increasing need to synthesize and understand the properties of technologically important materials, this issue represents an important step forward in improving our understanding of how modern materials can be optimised for technology and industry. The issue comprises 9 original review papers covering experimental approaches and theoretical modeling. The contributions will be very useful to researchers working in various areas of CMP and will contribute significantly to the understanding of rapidly developing materials with regard to their synthesis, characterization and properties.
