  • Materials Science & Engineering,
    Materials Science and Engineering can sub discipline as Materials Science and Materials Engineering. "Materials science" researches the connections that exist between the structures and properties of materials. Conversely, "materials building" is, based on these structure– property connections, planning or designing the structure of a material to deliver a foreordained arrangement of properties. It is the plan and disclosure of new materials, especially solids. For all intents and purposes exceptionally critical properties of strong materials might be assembled into six distinct classes: mechanical, electrical, warm, attractive, optical, and deteriorative. For each there is a trademark sort of boost fit for inciting diverse reactions. Mechanical properties relate distortion to a connected burden or power; models incorporate versatile modulus and quality. For electrical properties, for example, electrical conductivity and dielectric consistent, the upgrade is an electric field. The warm conduct of solids can be spoken to as far as warmth limit and warm conductivity. Attractive properties exhibit the reaction of a material to the use of an attractive field. For optical properties, the improvement is electromagnetic or light radiation; record of refraction and reflectivity are agent optical properties. At last, deteriorative attributes identify with the substance reactivity of materials.
  • Energy Materials,
  • Mining and Metallurgy,
    Fabric technological know-how performs an crucial role in metallurgy. Powder metallurgy includes an intensive variety of approaches wherein substances or components are made of steel powders. they can keep away from, or greatly lessen, the need to utilise metallic removal processes and might reduce the fees. Pyro metallurgy contains thermal remedy of minerals and metallurgical ores and focuses to achieve bodily and chemical changes inside the materials to enable recuperation of valuable metals. General data of metallurgy can help us to extract the metal in a greater possible manner and can used to a much wider range.
  • Nanomaterials and Nano composites ,,

    Nanocomposite is a multiphase solid material where one of the phases has one, two or three dimensions of less than 100 nanometers (nm) or structures having nano-scale repeat distances between the different phases that make up the material. The idea behind Nanocomposite is to use building blocks with dimensions in nanometre range to design and create new materials with unprecedented flexibility and improvement in their physical properties. In the broadest sense this definition can include porous media, colloids, gels and copolymers, but is more usually taken to mean the solid combination of a bulk matrix and nano-dimensional phase(s) differing in properties due to dissimilarities in structure and chemistry. The mechanical, electrical, thermal, optical, electrochemical, catalytic properties of the nanocomposite will differ markedly from that of the component materials

    nanomaterial is defined as the "material with any external dimension in the nanoscale or having internal structure or surface structure in the nanoscale", with nanoscale defined as the "length range approximately from 1 nm to 100 nm". This includes both nano-objects, which are discrete pieces of material, and nanostructured materials, which have internal or surface structure on the nanoscale; a nanomaterial may be a member of both these categories Nanoparticles

  • Advances in Nano Materials Science,
    Nanomaterials are foundations of nanoscience and nanotechnology. Nanostructure science and advancement is a sweeping and interdisciplinary space of imaginative work improvement that has been winding up brutally worldwide in the recent years. It has the potential for changing the courses in which materials and things are made and the range and nature of functionalities that can be gotten to.nano materials, nano one materials, nano structured materials, properties of nano material, nanoscale, nanoscale engineering
  • Carbon Nanomaterials,
    Carbon nanotubes (CNT) are a class of nanomaterials that consist of a two-dimensional hexagonal lattice of carbon atoms, bent and joined in one direction so as to form a hollow cylinder. Carbon nanotubes are one of the allotropes of carbon, specifically a class of fullerenes, intermediate between the buckyballs (closed shells) and graphene (flat sheets). Besides these single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs), the name is also used for multi-wall (MWCNT) variants consisting of two or more nested nanotubes, or of graphene-like strips rolled up into multiple layers like a scroll. Individual nanotubes naturally align themselves into "ropes" held together by relatively weak van der Waals forces. While one can build nanotubes of other compositions, most of the research has been focused on carbon ones; so that the "carbon" qualifier is often left implicit, and the names are abbreviated NT, SWNT, and MWNT.
  • Advances in Dielectric Materials and Electronic Devices ,
    A dielectric (or dielectric material) is an electrical insulator that can be polarized by an applied electric field. When a dielectric is placed in an electric field, electric charges do not flow through the material as they do in an electrical conductor but only slightly shift from their average equilibrium positions causing dielectric polarization. Because of dielectric polarization, positive charges are displaced in the direction of the field and negative charges shift in the opposite direction. This creates an internal electric field that reduces the overall field within the dielectric itself. If a dielectric is composed of weakly bonded molecules, those molecules not only become polarized, but also reorient so that their symmetry axes align to the field.

    Electronics is widely used in information processing, telecommunication, and signal processing. The ability of electronic devices to act as switches makes digital information-processing possible. Interconnection technologies such as circuit boards, electronics packaging technology, and other varied forms of communication infrastructure complete circuit functionality and transform the mixed electronic components into a regular working system, called an electronic system; examples are computers or control systems. An electronic system may be a component of another engineered system or a standalone device. As of 2018 most electronic devices use semiconductor components to perform electron control.

    Nanomedicine is the medical application of nanotechnology.Nanomedicine ranges from the medical applications of nanomaterials and biological devices, to nanoelectronic biosensors, and even possible future applications of molecular nanotechnology such as biological machines. Current problems for nanomedicine involve understanding the issues related to toxicity and environmental impact of nanoscale materials (materials whose structure is on the scale of nanometers, i.e. billionths of a meter). Biomedical engineering (BME) or medical engineering is the application of engineering principles and design concepts to medicine and biology for healthcare purposes (e.g. diagnostic or therapeutic). This field seeks to close the gap between engineering and medicine, combining the design and problem solving skills of engineering with medical biological sciences to advance health care treatment, including diagnosis, monitoring, and therapy.[1][2] Also included under the scope of a biomedical engineer is the management of current medical equipment within hospitals while adhering to relevant industry standards. This involves equipment recommendations, procurement, routine testing and preventative maintenance, through to decommissioning and disposal. This role is also known as a Biomedical Equipment Technician (BMET) or clinical engineering.

The actual application of surface science in related arenas like chemistry, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and physics is recognized as Surface Engineering. Surface Chemistry achieves the alteration of chemical configuration of a surface by presenting functional groups and additional elements while Surface physics deals with the physical deviations that arise at interfaces. Techniques tangled in Surface engineering are spectroscopy methods such as X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, low-energy electron diffraction, electron energy loss spectroscopy, Auger electron spectroscopy, Thermal desorption spectroscopy, ion scattering spectroscopy and secondary ion mass spectrometry, etc. The chemical reactions at the interface is generally termed as Surface Chemistry and is also linked to surface engineering. It is very significant in the arenas of heterogenous catalysis, electrochemistry and geochemistry
  • Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering ,
    Tissue engineering is the use of a combination of cells, engineering and materials methods, and suitable biochemical and physicochemical factors to improve or replace biological tissues. Tissue engineering involves the use of a tissue scaffold for the formation of new viable tissue for a medical purpose. While it was once categorized as a sub-field of biomaterials, having grown in scope and importance it can be considered as a field in its own. A biomaterial is any substance that has been engineered to interact with biological systems for a medical purpose - either a therapeutic (treat, augment, repair or replace a tissue function of the body) or a diagnostic one. As a science, biomaterials is about fifty years old. The study of biomaterials is called biomaterials science or biomaterials engineering. It has experienced steady and strong growth over its history, with many companies investing large amounts of money into the development of new products. Biomaterials science encompasses elements of medicine, biology, chemistry, tissue engineering and materials science.
  • Materials Chemistry and Sustainable Chemistry,
    Materials Chemistry and Physics (including Materials Science Communications) is a peer-reviewed scientific journal published 18 times per year by Elsevier. The focus of the journal is interrelationships among structure, properties, processing and performance of materials. It covers conventional and advanced materials. Publishing formats are short communications, full-length papers and feature articles. Sustainability can also be defined as a socio-ecological process characterized by the pursuit of a common ideal. An ideal is by definition unattainable in a given time and space. However, by persistently and dynamically approaching it, the process results in a sustainable system.The study of ecology believes that sustainability is achieved through the balance of species and the resources within their environment. In order to maintain this equilibrium, available resources must not be depleted faster than resources are naturally generated.
  • Biophysics and Systems Biology,
    Biophysics is an interdisciplinary science that applies approaches and methods traditionally used in physics to study biological phenomena.Biophysics covers all scales of biological organization, from molecular to organismic and populations. Biophysical research shares significant overlap with biochemistry, molecular biology, physical chemistry, physiology, nanotechnology, bioengineering, computational biology, biomechanics, developmental biology and systems biology. The term biophysics was originally introduced by Karl Pearson in 1892. Ambiguously, the term biophysics is also regularly used in academia to indicate the study of the physical quantities (e.g. electric current, temperature, stress, entropy) in biological systems, which is, by definition, performed by physiology. Nevertheless, other biological sciences also perform research on the biophysical properties of living organisms including molecular biology, cell biology, biophysics, and biochemistry
  • Electronic, Optical and Magnetic Materials ,
    For any electronic device to operate well, electrical current must be efficiently controlled by switching devices, which becomes challenging approach to systems very small dimensions. This problem must be addressed by synthesizing materials that permit reliable turn-on and turn-off current at any size scale. New electronic and photonic nanomaterials assure dramatic breakthroughs in communications, computing devices and solid-state lighting. Current research involves bulk crystal growth, organic semiconductors, thin film and nanostructure growth, and soft lithography. Many major photonics companies in the world views on different technologies and opinions about future challenges for manufacturers and integrators of lasers and photonics products. The silicon photonics market is anticipated to grow to $497.53 million by 2020, expanding at a CAGR of 27.74% from 2014 to 2020. The silicon carbide semiconductor market is estimated to grow $3182.89 Million by 2020, at an expected CAGR of 42.03% from 2014 to 2020.
  • Advances in Instrumentation Technology
    Instrumentation is a collective term for measuring instruments that are used for indicating, measuring and recording physical quantities such as flow, temperature, level, distance, angle, or pressure.
