The renown of being “the first novel,” or “the first modern novel,” a customary
discrimination which has no value except that of insisting on increasing
exactitude of technique, has been ascribed to a dozen widely separated works.

The renowned British novelist’s “casual and wittily acute guidance” on reading—and writing—great fiction (Harper’s). Renowned for such classics as A Room with a View, Howards End, and A Passage to India, E. M. Forster was one of Britain’s—and the world’s—most distinguished fiction writers, a frequent nominee for the Nobel Prize in Literature. In this collection of lectures delivered at Trinity College, Cambridge, in 1927, he takes a wide-ranging look at English-language novels—with specific examples from such masters as Dickens and Austen—discussing the elements they all have in common. Using a witty, informal tone and drawing as well on his extensive readings in French and Russian literature, Forster discusses his ideas in reference to such figures as Tolstoy, Dostoevsky, and Proust; explains the difference between “flat” and “round” characters and between plot and story; and ultimately provides an “admirable and delightful” education for anyone who appreciates the art of a good book (The New York Times).

Gallium nitride is an important material for the production of next-generation visible and near-UV optical devices, as well as for high temperature electronic amplifiers and circuits; however there has been no bulk method for the production of GaN substrates for device layer growth. Instead, thick GaN layers are heteroepitaxially deposited onto non-native substrates (usually sapphire) by one of two vapor phase epitaxy (VPE) techniques: MOVPE (metalorganic VPE) or HVPE (hydride VPE). Each method has its strengths and weaknesses: MOVPE has precise growth rate and layer thickness control but it is slow and expensive; HVPE is a low-cost method for high rate deposition of thick GaN, but it lacks the precise control and heterojunction layer growth required for device structures. Because of the large (14%) lattice mismatch, GaN grown on sapphire requires the prior deposition of a low temperature MOVPE nucleation layer using a second growth process in a separate deposition system. Here we present a novel hybrid VPE system incorporating elements of both techniques, allowing MOVPE and HVPE in a single growth run. In this way, a thick GaN layer can be produced directly on sapphire. GaN growth commences as small (50-100 nm diameter) coherent strained 3-dimensional islands which coalesce into a continuous film, after which 2-dimensional layer growth commences. The coalescence of islands imparts significant stress into the growing film, which increases with the film thickness until catastrophic breakage occurs, in-situ. Additionally, the mismatch in thermal expansion rates induces compressive stress upon cooling from the growth temperature of 1025ºC. We demonstrate a growth technique that mitigates these stresses, by using a 2-step growth sequence: an initial high growth rate step resulting in a pitted but relaxed film, followed by a low growth rate smoothing layer. As a result, thick (> 50 µm) and freestanding films have been grown successfully. X-ray rocking curve linewidth of 105 arcseconds and 10K PL indicating no "yellow" emission indicate that the material quality is higher than that produced by conventional MOVPE. By further modifying the hybrid system to include a metallic Mn source, it is possible to grow a doped semi-insulating GaN template for use in high frequency electronics devices.

"Novel Colloidal Forming of Ceramics” discusses several new near-net-shape techniques for fabricating highly reliable, high-performance ceramic parts. These techniques combine injection molding and the colloidal forming process. The book not only introduces the basic theoretical development and applications of the colloidal injection molding of ceramics, but also covers tape casting technology, the reliability of the product, and the colloidal injection molding of Si3N4 and SiC, as well as the low-toxicity system. The book is intended for researchers and graduates in materials science and engineering. Mr. Yong Huang and Dr. Jinlong Yang are both professors at the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Tsinghua University, China.

This study of recharge mechanisms to the Memphis aquifer in Shelby County, Tennessee, sought to develop better tools to enhance MLG&W's capabilities in managing water resources of the Memphis aquifer and improve sourcewater protection. The specific objective of the study was to develop a better understanding of the magnitude and impact of recharge through windows in the upper Claiborne confining layer. The study was successful in describing in more detail the flow behavior and unique age distribution characterization at this shallow aquifer. The combined tools used to study the window site have resulted in a new proposed hydrostratigraphic conceptual model for the site explaining the most probable genesis of the window as well as groundwater flow patterns in and around the window.
