Can there be an effective strategy for finding breakthrough materials, since they are, by definition, unpredictable? One answer is found in Combinatorial Materials Science techniques, which represent a powerful approach to identifying new and unexpected materials.
Technologies are an integral part of our lives and we rely on them for such things as communication, heating and cooling, transportation, and construction. Improvements to technologies have made what they do for us more precise, automated, efficient, and powerful.
The unique properties of the rare-earth elements and their alloys have brought them from relative obscurity to high profile use in common hightech applications.
