Insight into Smart Materials and Technology

Smart Materials also called as intelligent materials which have capability to respond to the external stimuli or change in any physical parameter and it shows response according to the change and comes back to original state once stimuli are removed from it. The Smart Materials are classified based on the type of stimuli and response to it. There will be change in property of the material due to the change in its environment. Smart Materials are hybrid materials constituting of at least two materials for the desired resulting materials with required properties.
