We feel a great contentment in bringing out this National Edited Book on “Novel Materials for Emerging Applications”. Science covers the methodical study of the structure and behaviour of the physical and natural world. Novel Materials Application is the Technology of scientific knowledge for practical purposes. In order to, the impact of emerging technologies addresses the present issues. At many facets ranging from global warming to health care. This gives unprecedented benefits which we all witness in our day-to-day activities.
Novel materials have become critical components of the emerging technologies and are increasingly used in many aspects of our lives. Likewise, they include interesting, unusual behaviours and amazing properties which make them useful in many applications. For example, photovoltaic devices, development of sustainable sources of energy, electric-car batteries for emission-free vehicles, carbon composites for fuel-efficient spacecraft, high-power magnets for wind turbines, lightweight portable electronic devices, the invention of technologies that improve human health like implantable medical devices for personalized medicine, metal alloys for lightweight prosthetics to polymer matrices for controlled drug release and thin films for high-speed integrated circuits etc.,
Meanwhile, this book presents a collection of chapters and research findings in the areas of Solar cells, Nano Materials, Sensor Materials, Thin films, Crystal growth, Polymers, Composite Materials, Novel Materials Application for Green Chemistry and Energy conversion, Optical and Health care materials designed to help the readers to capture some of the breadth and excitement views about novel materials which are considered to be crucial that can pave the way to scale-up the next generation scientific and technological advancements.
