The new academic discipline emerged by fusion of metallurgy, ceramics, solid-state physics and chemistry is the field which deals with identification, study and design of materials. Several properties namely bonding nature, shape, form and several other characteristics of a material is discovered so that the materials can be used to their maximum benefit in respective areas. The discipline is important both from a research perspective, as well as from an industrial one. When finding new materials, one encounters new discoveries which is yet to be discovered hence study and usage of the appropriate materials is crucial when designing systems.
