Abstract

Smart material are compounds that respond to their environmental stimuli. While these materials have been known for sometime, only recently have they been useful enough to be seen in everyday life. Believe it or not, you have most likely seen or even been in contact with one or more of these materials. Shape-memory alloys, pH-sensors, Piezoelectric, thermoplastics, Chromogenic systems and Ferrofluids are examples of smart materials that will be covered in this seminar. Smart materials will soon be integrated into everyday life such as cellphones to paint to replacement body parts and drug delivery. This seminar will cover current use and research as well as future applications of smart materials.
