Description

The world is now entering the New Materials Age. Just as previous periods of human history have been characterized by the materials used, from stone, bronze and iron to steel and silicon, so the late 20th century is experiencing a revolution based not on a single material but a bewildering range. "The Science of New Materials" offers an accessible account of the possibilities presented by these advances. Following an introduction by the editor, successive chapters deal with metals and their future as a material; ceramics, some of them stronger than steel; superconductors; electronic materials for computers and communications; materials for medical needs; a survey of the theory; and a challenge to the UK to formulate a materials policy.
