The basic physics behind the interaction of ions with
solid-state matter is discussed, with an emphasis on the formation of interaction products between the ions and target atoms.
Processes covering modification of high-resistance materials
for use in small-sized 3D structure technology are described.
Current trends in and problems facing the development of the
scanning nuclear microprobe (SNMP) are reviewed. The application of slow positrons to diagnosing materials is examined
and the techniques of positron microscopy and microprobing are
presented. The potential of near-field microwave microscopy
for diagnosing superconducting ceramics and of microwave
microscopy for nanotechnology applications are assessed. The
examples given include the use of micro- and nanoprobes to
analyze nanoobjects (such as green algae cells with 3D-distributed microelements, etc.), to develop the topological aspects of
integrated microcircuits in nanoelectronics, and some other
applications. The role of iron in pathogenesis of Parkinson’s
disease is highlighted, the latter being the subject of research in
