Micromechanics and materials are essential elements in all of the transcendent technologies that are the primary drivers of the twenty first century and in the new economy. The transcendent technologies include nanotechnology, microelectronics, information technology and biotechnology. Research tools, opportunities and challenges in mechanics and materials, including micro/nanomechanics, multiscale mechanics, microscopy, radiation scattering and other nanoscale metrologies, as well as improved engineering and design of materials are presented and discussed.
