Composites (08f)

#427 - Multifunctional Composites (08F08)
This session focuses on the various composite preparations and applications in energy harvesting (fuel cells, photovoltaic cells, and batteries), electronic, photodetectors, sensors, actuators, electromagnetic absorption/communication, flexible electrodes/cables, biomedicine (bone and dental structural materials), aerospace, etc wherein the composite is environmentally responsive. All research efforts toward the exploration of multifunctional composite fabrication and application are welcome from both polymer and metal composite systems.
