Superlattices and Microstructures is a journal devoted to the science and technology of synthetic microstructures, microdevices, surfaces and interfaces. The last decade has seen rapid developments in the fabrication, characterization and conceptual understanding of synthetic microstructures in many different material systems including silicon, III-V and II-VI semiconductors, metals, ceramics and organics. The objective of this journal is to provide a common interdisciplinary platform for the publication of the latest research results on all such nanostructures with dimensions in the range of 1-100 nm the unifying theme here being the dimensions of these artificial structures rather than the material system in which they are fabricated. Topics of emphasis included electron spin coherence, entanglement and transport metal insulator transitions in quantum dot arrays, phase braking times, Bohn trajectories and dissipative transport. A session was devoted to tunneling in extremely thin oxides and reliability questions for silicon technology. Silicon-based nanoelectronics and nanomechanics were discussed in several papers including surface chemistry as resolved on the atomic scale by scanning tunneling microscopy. Considerable progress was reported in all of these areas. All invited speakers attended and presented their topic and virtually all accepted contributed papers were given and are represented in the proceedings.
