About the book

This book initially addresses the issues of physics and technology of semimetals and metalloids. However, as these elements have intermediate and hybrid properties, the aim of this book is wider. Today, the knowledge of fundamental questions from semiconductor physics, and physics of metallic and composite materials, and also all aspects of materials technology gives the possibility of improvement to both initial material and devices on their basis. The articles for this book have been contributed by the much respected researchers in this significant areas and cover the most recent developments and applications of technology and some fundamental questions. This book provides the latest research developments in important aspects of semiconductor materials physics, metallic material physics, composite materials physics, metalloid, and semimetals physics, and also the synthesis and physics of fullerenes including nanoclusters, some technological processes, instrument structures and also a fundamental question about structural perfection of materials. This book is of interest both to fundamental research and to practicing scientists and also will be useful to all engineers and students in industry and academia.

Vitalyi Igorevich Talanin

Khortytsia National Academy

Dr. V.I. Talanin was born into a Russian noble family in Zaporozhye (USSR). He completed a M.Sc. degree (2000) in Physics and Technology of Materials & Components in Electronic Technique, a M.Sc. degree (2006) in Software Engineering and a Ph.D. (2002) in Physics of Semiconductors and Dielectrics. His Ph.D. dissertation was on the mechanisms of grown-in microdefects formation in dislocation-free silicon single crystals. Since 2012 to 2019 he was the Full Professor and Vice-Chief of Computer Science & Software Engineering Dept. at the Institute of Economics & Information Technologies (Zaporozhye, Ukraine). Since 2019 he is the Full Professor and Scientific Concultant at the Khortytsia National Academy (Zaporozhye, Ukraine). Dr. Talanin was awarded a Scholarship at the Ukraine Ministry Cabinet (2002-2003) and President Grant for Scientific Researches (2007, 2008). He was awarded the title Doctor of Science, honoris causa (2012) and the title Full Professor (2013). Dr. Talanin has published extensively in material science & semiconductor physics and also in history & genealogy (as hobbies). He has written 13 monographs and ca. 200 scientific papers. Since 2018 Dr. Talanin is a Member of an International Union of Crystallography (IUCr). Dr. Talanin is a Member of Editorial Board of some scientific journals. Dr. Talanin was a Member of a Program Committee and Organizing Committee of many international conferences.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Ivana Barac

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
