    1. The European Materials Research Society (E-MRS) (pages 216–217)

      Prof. Dr. Eberhard F. Krimmel

      Article first published online: 15 SEP 2004 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.19890010702

      Since its birth in 1986, the European MRS has been going from strength to strength. Regular interdisciplinary meetings are held and educational programs as well as European Research Networks are supported, these activities making up the basis of a thriving society. In this month's Editorial Essay a former secretary of the E-MRS traces the society's early development, assesses its current position and looks forward to its undoubtedly bright future.

    1. Dichroic dyes, and liquid crystalline side chain polymers (pages 218–224)

      Dr. Hans-Werner Schinidt

      Article first published online: 15 SEP 2004 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.19890010703

      The potential of LC side chain polymers is based on the unique combination of specific polymer properties with the anisotropic physical properties of conventional low molar mass liquid crystals. When dichroic dyes are incorporated as guests into the LC phases their molecular orientation can be controlled forming the basis of the electrooptical effect used for example in displays.

    2. Production and application of Rapidly Quenched Materials (pages 225–228)

      Prof. Dr. Hans Warlimont

      Article first published online: 15 SEP 2004 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.19890010704

      Amorphous metals produced by rapid quenching from the melt can be formed into ribbons (see figure) and can be greatly useful for speciality magnetic applications. In transformers, for example, power loss is greatly reduced when amorphous core transformers are used. This short review gives a taste of what can be achieved using Rapid Solidification Technology.

    1. Structure of anodic oxide coatings on aluminum (pages 229–231)

      Prof. Dr. Rüdiger Kniep, Dr. Peter Lamparter and Prof. Dr. Siegfried Steeb

      Article first published online: 15 SEP 2004 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.19890010705

      The structure of the remarkably uniform array of pores in surface coatings on aluminum has been investigated using X-ray and neutron diffraction techniques. The almost hexagonally shaped cells make the films of interest for application in the field of synthetic membranes and as supports for active materials.

    2. Superconductivity at 7.5 K and ambient pressure in polycrystalline pressed samples of βp-(BEDT-TTF)2I3 (pages 231–233)

      Prof. Dr. Dieter Schweitzer, Emil Gogu, Dr. Hans Grimm, Siegfried Kahlich and Prof., Dr. Heimo J. Keller

      Article first published online: 15 SEP 2004 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.19890010706

      Polycrystalline pressed samples of β-(BEDT-TTF)2I3 exhibit bulk superconductivity, zero resistivity being observed at 3.2 K (see figure) a transition temperature which is surprisingly higher than that observed for single crystals of the same compound.

    1. Materials for biomedical application– high long-term success rates might pose new problems (pages 234–236)

      Prof. Ganther Heimke

      Article first published online: 15 SEP 2004 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.19890010707

      The increasing functional lifetime of modern implants has been due to engineering successes in utilizing new materials. However, along with this progress has come the concern that some of these materials are not as biologically inert as expected and systemic damage may in some cases be caused. Second article in a quarterly series.
