Abstract : This volume contains the proceedings of the symposium "Nanophase and Nanocomposite Materials II," held in Boston, MA. on December 2-5, 1996, as part of the 1996 MRS Fall Meeting. The field of nanophase and nanocomposite materials has grown tremendously since the first symposium was held on this topic at the 1992 MRS Fall Meeting. The purpose of this second symposium was to provide a platform for the presentation and discussion of advances from throughout the world in this rapidly growing field. This symposium attracted scientists from various scientific and engineering disciplines and covered a multitude of topics such as synthesis, processing, properties and applications of numerous types of nanophase and nanocomposite materials. A total of 147 papers from 19 countries were presented from a large number of academic institutions, government research laboratories and private industries. The 81 papers published in this proceedings have been refereed and presented as eight chapters.
