Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
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.
Review from Ringgold Inc., ProtoView: This collection of monographs contains papers originally presented during the International Conference on Smart Materials- Smart/Intelligent Materials and Nanotechnology and the second International Workshop on Functional Materials and Nanomaterials held in Melbourne, Australia, in December 2008. Generally, the focus is on smart materials and their applications, and to encourage the cross- fertilization of these materials with nanomaterials. The collection includes roughly 200 papers by approximately 400 contributors. Topics include device, processing, applications, modeling and characterization of a wide range of materials, smart structural materials and composites, electro-optics and other photonic systems, carbon and other nanotubes, new nanomaterials and micromaterials, biomedical materials, and sensors.
