“The book has an excellent introduction (Status challenges and goals) to the general topic of this volume. … The illustration of each chapter is very useful and the bibliography really rich. The index is, as usual, an useful tool for the reader. This book is an useful reading for scientists and entrepreneurs working in this field.” (Ioan I. Ardelean, Bulletin of Micro and Nanoelectrotechnologies, Vol. 8 (1-2), June, 2017)
