Review from Ringgold Inc., ProtoView: Papers from an April 2007 symposium, 200 in all, are presented here, divided into chapters according to the type of material and its applications, characterization, or simulation. Most of the papers deal with biomaterials, ceramics, composite materials, electronic, magnetic, and photonic materials, polymers, and materials for energy production, transport, storage, and mechanical engineering applications. There is also material on nano and microstructural materials, paper, textiles, wood, and cork, smart materials, advances in materials characterization, surfaces, interfaces, and membranes, materials for civil engineering applications, and materials for art. Some specific topics examined include viscous sintering in a glass-alumina system, biodegradable composites applied to the automotive industry, magnetic field enhancement with soft magnetic flux guides, intermetallic effects on the ductility of sintered aluminum, and bulk copper-nanodiamond nanocomposites. B&w images are included.
