Summary

Incorporating an impressive array of sources and documentation that spans time periods, technological disciplines, and geographies, the author examines the detailed story and trajectory of the most important advanced material technologies of the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. Each chapter covers a preeminent product or process within a particular advanced material group or category, including: superalloys, organic polymer materials, composites, nanotubes, advanced ceramics, thin films, and bioengineered materials. Each case study follows the emergence, rise, and evolution of a product or process technology within the framework of a coherent, generally chronological narrative.
