Advanced materials


An advanced material is a material that demonstrates significant physical and/or functional improvements in comparison to traditional and commonly used materials. In the aerospace industry, advanced materials can be leveraged in various areas, e.g., for the development of lighter aircrafts, personal protection equipment to emerging hypersonic systems. Graphene, for example, is a carbon-based material, which is merely one atom thick and can be used to make batteries that are lightweight, durable, applicable in high capacity energy storage, and can be charged more rapidly than a typical battery.
