描述: Wide-bandgap semiconductors such as silicon carbide (SiC) and group-III Nitrides have attracted increasing attention as favored materials short-listed for use in new electronic devices; especially those destined for high-power, high-frequency and/or high-temperature applications, as well as short-wavelength light-emitters. This two-volume set contains >illustrated transcripts of papers presented at the International Conference on Silicon Carbide and Related Materials 2001 (ICSCRM2001), held in the Fall of 2001 at Tsukuba, Japan. This timely conference was held in the very first year of the 21st century; an era in which SiC devices are going to find a real market. More than 500 contributors; both academic scientists and device engineers, from 20 countries, discussed and exchanged ideas extensively during the five days of the conference.

描述: This book on ultrafast phenomena in semiconductors covers the electrical, magnetic and optical properties of charge carriers in solids and the interaction of solids and low-dimensional structures with electromagnetic fields and radiation. The book gives particular attention to: (a) Spectroscopic, transport, noise and localization properties of electrons and holes confined in quantum wells and quantum dots, including microdevices, (b) Physical principles of generation and detection of Teraherz electromagnetic radiation, and (c) high-speed electronics and materials.

This volume is dedicated to the ever-expanding fields of application of nitrides in ceramics, metals, glasses, composites, coatings, sensors, catalysts and electronic thin films. The papers cover all branches of materials science and engineering which concern the role of nitrogen in improving and modifying the properties of materials; particularly those destined for novel applications. All of the papers have been peer-reviewed prior to publication, so that this book will make a very significant contribution to assessing the current state-of-the-art concerning Nitrides and Oxynitrides.

These proceedings describe the most recent advances and trends in the fields of dusty and colloidal plasmas: a new discipline which is highly relevant to those working on nanostructured materials, nanotechnologies and devices which are processed using plasma and fusion tools. For instance, in the case of thin-film devices, the production of new materials such as polymorphous or quasi-morphous silicon or even silicon nanotubes is highly dependent upon the production of particles, in the plasma, which are suitable for incorporation into the films produced. Therefore, it is very important to know how dusty and colloidal plasmas behave, and how high-grade electronic films can be processed under such conditions.

X-ray powder diffraction is a non-destructive technique widely applied for the characterisation of crystalline materials. The method has been traditionally used for phase identification, quantitative analysis and the determination of structure imperfections. In recent years, applications have been extended to new areas, such as the determination of crystal structures and the extraction of three-dimensional microstructural properties.

This book deals with the chemical and electrochemical reactivity of novel materials in various environments. Special emphasis is put on metastable materials such as amorphous and nanostructured materials including carbon nanostructures and the novel bulk metallic glasses. Properties include corrosion resistance, electrochemical and catalytic activities, hydrogen sorption properties etc. The materials are made by various non-equilibrium processes such as rapid-quenching, high energy ball milling and thin film deposition techniques. Hydrogen storage and new materials for Ni-MH batteries are topics of particular interest in this book.

The degradation of materials and coatings in aggressive environments continues to be of great relevance to a wide range of industrial applications. The topic is of vital economic concern to the transportation, energy generation, and chemical processing industries in the developing, as well as the developed, nations of the world. The dual thrusts of conservation of resources and protection of the environment here strongly influence the tone of the technical submissions and thus again reflect the world-wide concern.

描述: Mechanical spectroscopy is a non-destructive technique that is very well suited for studying the dynamics of singularities such as structural defects in solids. It has been successfully applied in solid state physics and materials science for more than fifty years, and the present textbook aims at summarising the state-of-the-art in this field by presenting recent results obtained in Western European laboratories. The contents are divided into nine chapters. Introduction to mechanical spectroscopy (Ch.1) is based on a complete description of the elastic, viscoelastic, and viscoplastic behaviours of solids. The anelastic response is analysed from three different viewpoints: phenomenology, rheology and thermodynamics.
