Description: The issue collects papers presentingmost current results of research in the scope of light metal alloys. That volume include three chapters: I – aluminium alloys, II – magnesium alloys and III – titanium alloys. Chapter I presents subjects related to manufacturing of aluminum alloys, grain refinement and welding joints. The chapter presents also result of investigations concerning methods of obtaining and properties of aluminium matrix composites. Chapter II contain papers presenting the results of researches carried out on conventional and new casting magnesium alloys. The first group of articles concern the effects of modification on structure and properties of casting alloys. Following papers present results on plastic deformation of Mg alloys. Subsequent articles cover topics related to welding technologies. The last chapter concern the magnesium matrix composites. Results of researches carried out on titanium alloys are presented in Chapter III. Papers included in this section concern the microstructure and properties Ti alloys. Possibilities of heat treatment and diffusion brazing are also discussed.

The current volume of the Solid State Phenomena contains some new results in mechatronic systems, mechanics and materials, as well as in aspects of automatics and robotics in relevant technological applications. Therefore, the book is divided into three main chapters: mechatronics, automatics and robotics, and it contains the latest theoretical and practical experiences of scientists and researchers from universities and research centers. The main objective of this volume is the dissemination of the scientific knowledge to better understanding of widely considered mechatronic and material systems. Moreover, the aim of the issue is to interconnect diverse scientific fields and exchange current views between scientists and researchers. The Editors would like to express their appreciation to the Authors for their valuable contributions published in this volume, as well as to the Reviewers for excellent work, which helped us select the papers contained in the issue.We hope that the volume will be a source of knowledge and inspiration for scientists, researchers and practitioners working in the fields of interest covered by the book.

The special topic volume with invited papers covers works implementing the Control Theory to materials processing, especially the field of putting materials properties to its better use in manufacturing processes. Instead of only using principles of control theory for materials, researchers use phenomena arising in materials for control purposes. In this topic book most considerations are focused on the group of “Smart Materials” ie. Shape Memory Alloys (SMA) or Piezoelectrics.

The present special topic volume entitled “Glass Science and its Applications – II” covers different glasses and glass ceramic materials for technological and biomedical applications. In this special issue, the first review paper reports on the linear and non- linear properties of different materials. The second paper reports the visible-NIR luminescence and time-resolved emission spectral profiles of Nd3+, and Er3+ doped silver zinc borate glasses. The third paper, As2O3 glasses were identified as the low-loss materials for long-distance optical transmission and CuO containing glasses are also draw special attention because of the p-type semiconductivity property. Glass system of composition Li2O-Na2O-B2O3: Fe2O3 with replacing alkali oxides one by another have been reported in the fourth paper. Dielectric properties of these glasses have also been explored. In biomedical applications, CaO-P2O5 based glass reinforced hydroxyapatite composite material for bone regenerative applications have been reported in paper five and six. Paper six, the guided bone regeneration procedure using a glass-reinforced HA and collagen membrane in the treatment of an intrabony defect was reported. Authors hope that this special volume may be useful for those who are searching for a general overview of glass science and its applications in different fields.
