About the book

In the current scenario, HEAs are the center of attraction in academia and industries in almost every field. HEAs have shown a wide range of microstructure and hence a set of structural properties that can be applied in various mechanical, structural, high-temperature, magnetic, wear and corrosion-resistant, and in microjoining components. In this book, we present the basic concepts and history of alloying, beginning of the HEAs, and a wide spectrum of knowledge of various alloy systems, their design strategy and key properties and applications.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Mateo Pulko

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.
