The field of nanocomposites has the attention and imagination of scientists and engineers in recent years. The reason for this is based on the simple premise that by using building blocks with dimensions in the nanosize region, it is possible to design and create new materials with unprecedented flexibility and improvements in their physical properties. Composites using nanosize building blocks of heterogeneous chemical species have been shown in several interdisciplinary fields.

Pulickel M. Ajayan is a Professor of Materials Science and Engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. After Three years of industrial research experience (NEC Corporation, Japan), he spent two years as a research scientist at the CNRS laboratoire de Physique des Solides, Orsay in France and about a year and a half as an Alexander von Humboldt fellow at the Max-Planck-Institut fur Metallforschung, Stuttgate in Germany. Professor Ajayan's research interests are mainly focused on the synthesis and characterization of one-dimensional nonostructures with special emphasis on carbon nano-tubes.

 

Linda S. Schadler is Associate Professor at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. After two years of post-doctoral work at IBM Yorktown Heights, Schadler served as a faculty member at Drexel University in Philadelphia, PA before coming to Rensselaer. Professor Schadler is a current member of the National Materials Advisory Board. She serves on numerous professional committees and as education and outreach coordinator for the Center "Directed Assembly of Nanostructures".


Paul V. Braun joined the faculty at the University of Illinois at U-C in 1999 as an assistant professor of materials Science and Engineering. He is the recipient of a 2001 Beckman Young Investigator Award, a 3M Nontenured Faculty Award, the 2002 Robert Lansing Hardy Award from TMS and a Willett Faculty Scholar Award from the University of Illinois at U-C College of Engineering.
