      Nanoscale copper wires are necessary to interconnect transistors and form logical circuits in microprocessors. Conductivity degradation in nanoscale metals leads to significant power wasted in the interconnect, but the mechanisms of this degradation remain poorly understood theoretically. Baruch Feldman et al. (pp.1791-1796) perform first-principles simulations of the electron scattering in copper and silver grain boundaries, one of the primary causes of conductivity degradation, and investigate the detailed determinants of scattering. The front cover image referring to this article shows multi-crystalline copper interconnect lines.

      ZnO is an excellent material for many applications such as UV emitters, gas sensors, transparent conductors, piezoelectric transducers, etc. The focused ion beam (FIB) technique, on the other hand, is an excellent fabrication tool for nanodevices. In this issue's Inside Back Cover article (pp. 1628–1632), Lee Chow, Oleg Lupan, and Guangyu Chai report on the development of an innovative technique using FIB to fabricate ZnO tetrapods and ZnO micro-cross gas sensors and UV sensors. It is shown that ZnO tetrapod sensors can be used to detect minute amounts of hydrogen and other gases.

      M. Peres et al. (pp. 1695–1698) characterize the morphological and optical properties of ZnO nanostructures grown by pulsed laser deposition (PLD) on c-sapphire and Si(111), assessing them by SEM, PL and reflection measurements. The SEM images show two main kinds of morphology: high-density nanocolumn and nanocone arrays with preferential orientation perpendicular to the substrate plane. In order to analyse the antireflective properties of the PLD-grown nanostructures, room-temperature wavelength and angle dependent reflectance measurements were performed. The results suggest that these nanostructures act as highly effective broad-band antireflection coatings.
