Description: The irradiation of materials with energetic particles has significant effects on the properties of target materials. In addition to the well-known detrimental effects of irradiations, they have also some beneficial effects on the properties of materials. Irradiation effect can change the morphology of the materials in a controlled manner and tailor their mechanical, structural, optical and electrical properties. Irradiation induced modifications in the properties of materials can be exploited for many useful applications. This 2nd volume on Radiation Effects considers the importance of Radiation Induced Modifications of Materials. It includes 9 Papers written by experts in this field on a variety of subjects.

Description: The credit of introducing Solid State Nuclear Track Detectors (SSNTDs) as a powerful research tool in the early sixties goes to P.B. Price, R.L. Fleischer and R.M. Walker of the General Electric Company of the United States of America. Basically, SSNTDs are dielectric materials or solid insulators such as mica, glass, synthetic plastics, etc. which record and permanently store the trajectory of fast moving charged particles in the form of submicroscopic trails of continuous damage called latent tracks. The present Volume consists of one dozen Papers on Applications of SSNTDs in various fields; Radon Studies covering more than half of this Volume.

Description: The minisymposium “Parametric and Non-Parametric Methods of Data Analysis at Multiscale Modeling” provided an opportunity to exchange ideas and experiences at the crossroads of three disciplines: materials science, image analysis and statistical data analysis, where new research possibilities have appeared with the rapid development of computer hardware: an increase in the processing speed and the size of the memory available – there has been a rapid development of data analysis methods that were previously not possible to use in practice due to the required computing power. The minisymposium was organized as part of the WCCM 2014, 11th World Congress on Computational Mechanics, which was held in Barcelona, Spain on 20-25 July, 2014.

Description: Ferroics is the generic name given to the study of ferromagnets, ferroelectrics, and ferroelastics. The basis of this study is to understand the large changes in physical characteristics that occur over a very narrow temperature range. In recent years, a new class of ferroic materials has been attracting increased interest. These multiferroics exhibit more than one ferroic property simultaneously in a single phase. The present volume: “Ferroic Materials: Synthesis and Applications" has ten Chapters, spread over areas as diverse as Magnetic Oxide Nanomaterials, Ferrites Synthesis, Hexaferrites, Spin Torque Nano-Oscillator, Ferroelectric Lattices, Flexoelectricity and Ferroelectric Materials for High Temperature Piezoelectric Applications.
