Smart Materials Using Nanotechnology To Produce The Materials To Be Used In Applications Of The Future

Abstract:
Smart materials are defined as materials with properties engineered to change in a controlled manner under the influence of external stimuli. These external influences can include temperature, force, moisture, electric charge, magnetic fields and pH. Nanotechnology is rapidly entering the world of smart materials and taking them to the next level. Perhaps future nanotechnology enabled smart materials may be able to change and recombine much like the shape shifting cyborg in the movie Terminator 2.
