In many technologies, performance requirements drive device dimensions below the scale of electron mean free paths (λe). This trend has increased scientific interest and technological importance of electrical resistivities at the nanoscale.
Can there be an effective strategy for finding breakthrough materials, since they are, by definition, unpredictable? One answer is found in Combinatorial Materials Science techniques, which represent a powerful approach to identifying new and unexpected materials.
Biomedical implants are essentially foreign substances within the human body that must survive many years’ exposure to demanding mechanical and physiological conditions. Despite these challenges, metal implants have been widely used to substitute for or rebuild hard tissues such as bones and teeth.
The unique properties of the rare-earth elements and their alloys have brought them from relative obscurity to high profile use in common hightech applications.
