  • Published: November 2008
  • Region: Global
  • 1000 Pages
  • Trans Tech Publications Inc

Selected, peer reviewed papers from the 2nd International Workshop on Functional Materials and Nanomaterials (IWOFM-2)

The main theme of this special volume is that of intelligent and smart materials and their application. One particular aim is to encourage the ‘cross-fertilisation’ of these materials with nanomaterials.

The main topics covered are: devices, processing, applications, modeling and characterization of a wide range of materials including piezoelectric ceramics/polymers, magnetostrictive materials, smart structural materials and composites, electro-optics and other photonic systems, carbon and other nanotubes, new nano and micromaterials, biomedical materials, sensors and divers smart materials.

This wide coverage therefore makes this book an excellent handbook on the subject.
