In the first chapter of this book, Yahong Liu, Kun Song, and Xiaopeng Zhao explore metamaterials such as nonlinear left-handed metamaterials, impedance-matched near-zero index metamaterials, chiral metamaterials, and metasurfaces. The second chapter by Anett Király and Ferenc Ronkay discusses processing methods of conductive polymer composites as well as their properties. Next, the third chapter by Xiaogang Chen and Shengnan Min provides a review on current knowledge on protective composite helmet shells reinforced by continuous textile structure. G. Mansoura, K. Tsongasa, and D. Tzetzisb determine an effective modal testing system to investigate dynamic mechanical properties of elastomeric composite materials in the fourth chapter. Continuing, the fifth chapter by Vineetha Vinayakumar, Sadasivan Shaji, David Avellaneda, and Bindu Krishnan, presents an overview on inorganic chalcogenide photovoltaics and their applications. In the sixth chapter, Mohammad K. Hossain, Mahmudur R. Chowdhury, MD, and Nydeia W. Bolden present a study and analysis on fiber reinforced polymeric composites. Afterwards, D. Luca Motoc, PhD discusses the properties of hybrid synthetic/natural reinforcements and challenges faced by material designers. In the eighth and final chapter, Anis Rahman, PhD and Aunik K Rahman propose the use of the kinetics spectrum for quantifying an impact-caused deformation event in layered materials used in Soldiers’ helmets.
