    • Emerging, though very rapidly growing field: very important for current research.
    • Lately among the first three most-cited topics in the Materials-Sciences.
    • High potential materials due to special and unique mechanical and physical properties.

    Aims and Scope

    Metal Matrix Composites (MMC's) have found an increased use in various industries duetotheir special mechanical and physical properties. They are a composite material with at least two constituent parts, one being a metal and are made by dispersing a reinforcing material into a metal matrix. The markets are: telecommunications, automotive, power semiconductor, opto-electronics, military and aerospace, heavy transportation, space systems and satellites, medical, and industrial lighting. Applications within these markets include microwave, micro-electronic packaging, laser diode, HB-LED’s, and advanced radar.
