The Ferrite term is used to refer to all magnetic oxides containing iron as major metallic component. Ferrites are very attractive materials because they simultaneously show high resistivity and high saturation magnetization, and attract now considerable attention, because of the interesting physics involved. Typical ferrite material possesses excellent chemical stability, high corrosion resistivity, magneto-crystalline anisotropy, magneto-striction, and magneto-optical properties. Ferrites belong to the group of ferrimagnetic oxides, and include rare-earth garnets and ortho–ferrites. Several new hard and soft ferrites, garnets and their composite systems have been developed during recent years, with very large potential applications, which include bio-sensors, targeted drug delivery, magnetic imaging pigments, anti radar coating, microwave components, transparent magnetic plastics, etc. From physical point of view, ferrites present an extremely interesting class of systems with challenging problems. Hence this special volume was prepared with focus on some of these topics of interest to university researchers and entrepreneurs in industry.

Functional nanomaterials are the basis of newly emerging nanotechnologies for various device applications. Nanomaterials with many kinds of morphologies and compositions have been extensively investigated, and display various kinds of functionality in areas such as electronic structure, optical effects, spin dynamics, and gas sensing. Because of advanced characterization and new fabrication techniques, nanomaterials are now central to multiple disciplines, including materials science, chemistry, physics, engineering and medicine. This special volume presents a detailed overview of recent research developments on functional nanomaterials, including synthesis, characterization, and applications.

The special collection of peer reviewed papers contains some new results in mechatronic systems, mechanics and materials, as well as in aspects of control and robotics in relevant technological applications. Therefore, the book is divided into three main chapters: mechatronics, control 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. We hope that the volume will be a source of knowledge and inspiration to scientists, researchers and practitioners.

This volume covers various aspects of ultra-clean technology for the large-scale integration of semiconductors. These include cleaning and contamination control in both front-end-of-line (FEOL) and back-end-of-line (BEOL) processing, as well as cleaning for semiconductor photo-voltaic applications. Also covered are studies of general topics such as particle removal using acoustic enhancement, the removal of metallic contamination, pattern collapse of fine flexible and fragile features, wetting and drying, contamination control and contamination metrology. The FEOL and BEOL contributions also treat the surface chemistry of silicon and other semiconductors, cleaning related to new gate stacks, cleaning at the interconnect level, resist strip and polymer removal, cleaning and contamination control for various new materials and cleaning following CMP (chemical mechanical polishing).
