Ability of creative application of materials in electronics is extended in the field of technology of their processing and the change of the properties of materials during their exploitations in electrical circuits, microelectronics, optoelectronic applications, sensors, actuators, superconductors, semiconductors, magnetic structures, and special applications. The processing technologies and the ageing processes are based on the relationships between composition, internal structure, and properties of materials.
