The first book of the Proceedings of ASCO-Nanomat 2015 includes articles of 41 contributed papers of the third school-conference, which were recommended for publication by Publishing Committee. The articles reflect the new results and scientific achievements in the field of growth and synthesis of new nanomaterials and coatings, technology of their growth and preparation, their physical properties, calculations and modeling of the electronic structure and properties of new nanomaterials. The Proceedings consist of two chapters. In the first one “Semiconducting and Metal Nanoheterostructures: Self-Organization and Characterization” the 14-th articles devoted to atomic processes and nanostructure formation and characterization and ab initio calculations and modeling were collected. In the second chapter named “Nonlinear Optical Mediums, Nanocomposites, Nanostructured Coatings, Functional Materials and their Applications” the 27 articles devoted to formation technology and characterization of different kinds of nanomaterials of organic and non-organic nature were presented. This proceedings volume is intended for scientists, readers, professors and post-graduate students.

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.
