Hybrid Materials and Applications

(Duke University - Cheng-Yu Chen)

- Overview

Hybrid materials are emerging as a very efficient and promising class of materials. This complementarity leads to a complete synergy of desired material properties and end products. 

Hybrid materials not only represent creative alternatives for designing new materials and compounds for academic research, but their improved or unusual properties allow the development of innovative industrial applications. 

In recent years, multifunctional materials are state-of-the-art, high-tech engineering materials capable of withstanding mechanical loads, with high thermal stability, fatigue resistance, and enhanced chemical and environmental resistance.

Looking to the future, there is no doubt that these new generation hybrid materials, born out of fruitful activities in this field of research, will have applications in optics, electronics, biomedicine, ionics, mechanics, energy, and environment.
