About the Editors

Hans-Jorg Fecht is director of the Institute of Micro and Nanomaterials, which he founded in 1997 at the University of Ulm, Germany. Prof. Fecht has held professorships at the University of Augsburg, Technical University Berlin, and Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany and is chaired professor at the University of Ulm since 1997. He is guest professor at several universities in China, India, and Japan. As an expert in the field of materials science, materials engineering, and nanotechnology, he received the prestigious G. F. Leibniz award in 1998 and has coauthored more than 400 technical papers and coorganized several international conferences and workshops. He is a longstanding member of several international advisory boards and the European Academy of Sciences and Arts, Salzburg, Austria.

Kai Bruhne is a senior researcher at the Institute of Micro and Nanomaterials, University of Ulm, Germany. Dr.-Ing. Bruhne's present research interests include the deposition and analysis of nanocrystalline diamond films grown by hot-filament chemical vapor depositions (CVDs). He won the "VDI Preis fur Innovative Werkstoffanwendungen 2004" together with Prof. Hans-Jorg Fecht and Dr.-Ing. Peter Gluche.

Peter Gluche is managing director of GFD (Gesellschaft fur Diamantprodukte mbH), Ulm, Germany, and CEO of the Swiss subsidiary Diamaze Microtechnology SA (DMT), La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. He studied microelectronics and received a Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the University of Ulm. Dr.-Ing. Gluche is a founding member of GFD, which is a spin-off from the University of Ulm and the DaimlerChrysler Research Centre, Ulm. He is author and coauthor of various scientific publications and book chapters in the fields of electrical engineering and materials science.
