Constructal law of design and evolution: Physics, biology, technology, and society
Adrian Bejan and Sylvie Lorente
Partial Abstract: This is a review of the theoretical and applied progress made based on the Constructal law of design and evolution in nature, with emphasis on the last decade. The Constructal law is the law of physics that accounts for the natural tendency of all flow systems (animate and inanimate) to change into configurations that offer progressively greater flow access over time.
Oxidation of Al-bearing III-V materials: A review of key progress
J. M. Dallesasse and N. Holonyak, Jr.
Partial Abstract: Since the discovery of III-V oxidation by Dallesasse and Holonyak in 1989, significant progress has been made both technically and commercially in the use of oxides in compound semiconductor devices. Devices ranging from lasers to transistors have been fabricated that capitalize on the process-induced modification of refractive index and conductivity, allowing control of the two carriers of information in opto-electronic systems—the photon and the electron.
Plasma processing of low-k dielectrics
Mikhail R. Baklanov, Jean-Francois de Marneffe, Denis Shamiryan, Adam M. Urbanowicz, Hualiang Shi, Tatyana V. Rakhimova, Huai Huang, and Paul S. Ho
Partial Abstract: This paper presents an in-depth overview of the present status and novel developments in the field of plasma processing of low dielectric constant (low-k) materials developed for advanced interconnects in ULSI technology. The paper summarizes the major achievements accomplished during the last 10 years.

- CrossMark Implemented on AIP journals
AIP Publishing is dedicated to scientific accuracy and integrity and as a result has implemented CrossMark on its publications. As of December 2012, a CrossMark logo will appear on an HTML page or PDF file indicating that the publisher is maintaining the published document through any updates, corrections, enhancements, retractions, and other such changes. Clicking the CrossMark logo reveals status information about the document and tells readers whether they are accessing the most recent and reliable version or not. A link to any updated version will be included. You can learn more about CrossMark from the CrossRef website.
- The 2012 Nobel Prize in Physics
The American Institute of Physics congratulates this year's Nobel Laureates in Physics, Serge Haroche and David J. Wineland “for ground-breaking experimental methods that enable measuring and manipulation of individual quantum systems."
- AIP joins the entire scientific community in congratulating Saul Perlmutter, Brian P. Schmidt, and Adam G. Riess on winning the 2011 Nobel Prize in Physics and Daniel Shechtman for his Nobel Prize in chemistry. The award in physics was for the groundbreaking discovery of the accelerating expansion of the universe through observations of distant supernovae. Dr. Shechtman’s award in chemistry was for his discovery of quasicrystals.
