Smart Hybrid Materials

Smart materials are materials that have one or more properties that can be significantly changed in a controlled technique by external stimuli, such as electric or magnetic fields, stress, moisture, light, temperature, pH, or chemical compounds. Smart materials also called as intelligent or responsive materials. The applications of Smart materials are including sensors and actuators, or artificial muscles, particularly as electroactive polymers.

Hybrid materials are composites combination of two or more materialsat the nanometer or molecular level. Usually one of these compounds is inorganic and the other one is organic in nature. Therefore, they are different from traditional composites where the constituents are at the macroscopic (micrometer-millimeter) level. Mixing at a microscopic scale leads to a more homogeneous material that moreover shows characteristics in between the two original phases or two new properties. Particulate and fiber composites are examples of one type of hybrid, but there are many others: segmented structures, sandwich structures, lattice structures etc.
