About this Research Topic
Material science and engineering have demonstrated the potential to bring significant progress and even revolutionize a large range of domains, including nanotechnology, photonics, biomedicine, sustainability, and circular economy. This Research Topic will highlight the latest advances in materials research, with a strong emphasis on interdisciplinary research (in both fundamental and applied areas) for a more sustainable future.
The goal of this Research Topic is to discuss emerging trends in the research in material sciences that relate to the progress toward a greener and more sustainable industry through the publication of articles of original research, reviews, mini-reviews, and perspectives manuscripts. Those works will address topics from ceramics and inorganic materials to soft matter, including biopolymers and organic-inorganic hybrids, and the current challenges in computational materials science. Additionally, strong advances in experiments and theory will be spotlighted together with recent advances in optical materials for sensing.
