#307 - Sensing Applications of Nanocomposites (08F03)
Nanocomposite materials are increasingly the material of choice in transportation, military and medical applications, offering an excellent balance of properties, including high stiffness to weight ratio, high strength, low permeability, and reduced flammability. Such composites may be engineered simultaneously, however, for smart applications using arrays of switches and sensors in fabrics and films, including electro-optical, biosensor and or drug delivery devices. This session invites papers which survey structure/property relationships or processing techniques for smart nanocomposites designed for sensing or switching. We welcome both theoretical and experimental papers.
