Current Issue: June 2007

Welcome to the June issue of Materials World, where this month we explore a degrading topic – corrosion. Three of our experts offer their advice on how to tackle this problem in order to keep structures and buildings safe and rust-free. In other feature stories, Keith Parker of Morgan Technical Ceramics highlights the cost savings that technical ceramics can provide for aerospace applications, while Michael Forrest looks at the uranium prospects of a mining project in Alaska, USA.
   In our news section, the Materials World team investigates environmental innovations, including an improved 3D solar cell and methods for recycling waste electrical and electronic equipment. Rupal Mehta also talks to Wilfred Haensel of PlasticsEurope about his sustainability agenda for the plastics industry. Other news stories explore the use of synthetic diamond for high performance electronic products, a new four-in-one system for PCB inspection, and we take a look at the longest carbon nanotube yet to be grown – measuring a full 18mm!

Our news is filed under the following section titles. Click on those sections that are highlighted for news in the current issue:
