About the Book
This book is a collection of review articles on a spectrum of modern materials. Materials Science has witnessed dramatic developments during the past couple of decades and has had a profound impact on technology development as a whole. It is often said that the availability of suitable materials is the fundamental prerequisite for the development of a specific technology. This point is aptly illustrated in some of the articles dealing with materials for space, aeronautics, nuclear energy, electronics, photonics and information technology. Most of the articles have outlined the basic principles behind the relevant phenomena, different aspects of materials processing and characterization and the intended applications of these specialized materials.
Materials science is truly an interdisciplinary subject. This is reflected in this collection containing thirty one reviews, covering a wide range of materials such as liquid crystals, aero gels, super alloys, shape memory alloys, refractory metals, rare earths, metal matrix composites, compound semiconductors, ceramics and carbon based materials. The authors, representing leading research groups in the country, have all emphasized the developments made in India against the background of the current global scenario and many of them have suggested directions for future research activities in their respective areas. This book is, therefore, extremely valuable for students of physics, chemistry, engineering, biology and materials science embarking on a career in materials research, for the practitioners of materials science and also for science planners involved in the development of high tech areas.
