This book considers the different aspects of materials with specific magnetic, electric and elastic properties. They are considered in view of potential application in the design and manufacturing of smart materials. Modern smart materials play a key role at investigations in interdisciplinary materials sciences and are serving to forge new links between basic and applied research.
Progress is reported in the fabrication and understanding of in-situ formation and characterization of solid state structures with specified properties.
Modern smart materials play a key role at investigations in interdisciplinary materials sciences - chemistry, physics, biology, archaeometry, engineering and their crossing pathways - and serve to forge new links between basic and applied research
