Smart and Functional Textiles is an application-oriented book covering a wide range of areas from multifunctional nanofinished textiles, coated and laminated textiles, wearable e-textiles, textile-based sensors and actuators, thermoregulating textiles, to smart medical textiles and stimuli-responsive textiles. It also includes chapters on 3D printed smart textiles, automotive smart textiles, smart textiles in military and defense, as well as functional textiles used in care and diagnosis of Covid-19.
Dr. Bapan Adak is a Research Fellow at NTU Singapore (School of Material Science and Engineering). He graduated in 2010 with BTech in Textile Technology from G.C.E.T.T.S. (W.B.U.T.). He received his MTech degree and Ph.D. both from IIT Delhi (India), in 2015 and 2019, respectively. Based on his doctoral research, he got ‘Distinction Award’ and three International Travel Awards for presenting at overseas conferences. He has almost six years of industrial experience at the managerial level, focusing on product development and manufacturing in the fields of technical textiles and textile chemical processing. He has filed 1 Indian patent, published 23 journal articles (mostly in Elsevier, ACS, RSC, Springer-Nature, and Wiley), authored 1 book, edited 1 book, written 14 book chapters (International publishers), presented in 14 conferences [Including four overseas conferences organized at Taipei (Taiwan), Leeds (UK), Ghent (Belgium), and Pisa (Italy)]. He has publications in very high-impact journals like Progress in Materials Science (I.F=48.2), Infomat (I.F= 24.8), ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces (I.F = 10.4), Composite Part B: Engineering (I.F = 11.3), Applied Materials Today (I.F = 8.6), Chemistry of Materials (I.F = 10.5), Journal of Materials Chemistry C (I.F = 8.1), and many others. Before editing this book, he authored another book titled "Single-Polymer Composite" (CRC Press + Taylor & Francis) jointly with Prof. Samrat Mukhopadhyay. His research interests include functional and smart textiles, wearable electronics, thermoregulating textiles, coated and laminated textiles, polymeric composites and nanocomposites (synthesis and application), 2D nanomaterials, 3D printing, flexible food packaging, and sustainable materials/technologies.
Dr. Samrat Mukhopadhyay is Professor at the Department of Textile and Fibre Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Delhi, India. A gold medallist from the University of Kolkata, he subsequently did his Masters and PhD from IIT Delhi. He was with the Fibrous Materials Research Group, University of Minho, Portugal as a Post-Doctoral Scientist with the prestigious FCT (Fundacao para a Ciencia) grant before joining the Department. As a distinguished researcher, he has 5 granted patents, more than 100 peer-reviewed articles in top-tier journals (including Elsevier, ACS, RSC, Springer-Nature, and Wiley), 1 authored book, 1 edited book, 10 book chapters, 34 conference participations, and 12 invited talks. He also co-authored the book "Single-Polymer Composite" (CRC Press + Taylor & Francis) with Dr. Bapan Adak, which received critical acclaim. His areas of research include sustainability in textiles - energy and water saving in processing, development of sustainable products - with a thrust on single polymer composite materials, waste-to-wealth technologies, 2D materials, technology intervention in handlooms, and heritage conservation. His notable accomplishments include the development of single polymer composite materials for GAIL, India and design of a prototype instrument for online fabric defect detection. In addition, he has contributed to the development of an ergonomic street-sizing machine for the handloom sector.
