Abstract
Composites offer major improvements in key properties over monolithic materials, including high stiffness, strength and thermal conductivity and low density and coefficient of thermal expansion. They are now baseline in a large and increasing number of dimensionally stable structures, optomechanical systems components and in electronic packaging and thermal management. They also are under development in a number of data storage component, including disks and actuators. In this paper, we present an overview of key materials, including polymer matrix composites, metal matrix composites and carbon/carbon composites.
