MADE TO MEASURE. New Materials for the 21st Century PDF

Philip Ball

Made to Measure introduces a general audience to one of todays most exciting areas of scientific research: materials science. This book is written in the same engaging manner as Balls popular book on chemistry, Designing the Molecular World, and it links insights from chemistry, biology, and physics with those from engineering as it outlines the various areas in which new materials will transform our lives in the twenty-first century.Let me state up front that Made to Measure... is an outstanding book. Written for the general reader, it will also greatly appeal to specialists. If you are a solid-state physicist, chemist, materials scientist, engineer, science policy maker, or keen amateur scientist, then sell your shirt to buy it.-COLIN HUMPHREYS, New ScientistPhilip Ball offers a panorama of 1,001 new materials for the next century.... His survey would make a good textbook for an introductory course in materials science. For the rest of us, the sheer range of examples is impressive.-JON TURNEY, Financial Times-Philip Ball writes about the very modern science of materials.... [He] is full of fascinating insights and, especially on the photonic side of things, he really opens the readers eyes.... [His] book is the first to be entirely devoted to this field. That task has been very well accomplished, and the book is warmly recommended.-ROBERT W. CAHN, European Journal of Physics
