Presents technologies and key concepts to produce suitable smart materials and intelligent structures for sensing, information and communication technology, biomedical applications (drug delivery, hyperthermia therapy), self-healing, flexible memories and construction technologies. Novel developments of environmental friendly, cost-effective and scalable production processes are discussed by experts in the field.
Smart materials react to changes in their environment, like compact, low-power sensors that can detect stimuli e.g. toxic chemicals, bio-hazards or radiation
Promising applications in the textile industry, biomedicine, construction technologies
