      The cover picture of this issue is related to the Feature Article by Rohit P. Prasankumar (pp. 1973–1995). The figure depicts the schematic of an ultrafast optical pump-probe measurement on an ensemble of semiconductor nanowires. The figures shown on the right demonstrate the ability of ultrafast optical spectroscopy to track the temporal evolution of carrier populations in semiconductor nanowires with femtosecond time resolution as a function of intrinsic parameters (e.g., the nanowire diameter) and extrinsic parameters (e.g., the wavelength or excitation fluence), providing vital information that cannot be obtained by any other technique.

      This issue contains selected articles presented at the International Workshop and Conference on Auxetics and Related Systems, hosted by the University of Bristol in September 2008. The guesteditors Krzysztof W. Wojciechowski (Polish Academy of Sciences), Chrystel Remillat and Fabrizio Scarpa (both University of Bristol, UK) present new and interesting developments related to auxetic composites and also document significant advances that have been made in this field in recent years.
