Functional Materials and Metallurgy
Editors:
Prof. Haider F. Abdul Amir
Online since:
September 2017
Periodical and volume:
Solid State Phenomena Vol. 263
Description:
Functional materials have held a very prominent position in the various high-tech areas. Such materials are not being classified on the basis of their origin, nature of creating or processing techniques but are classified on the basis of the functions they can perform. The International Conference on Functional Materials and Metallurgy (ICFMM 2016, August 3-5, 2016, Shanghai, China) was devoted to the study of the properties and methods of application the modern functional materials. We hope the volume will offer the readers a good opportunity to access the state-of-the art developments and future directions of researches on functional materials and metallurgy.
