Generally, functional materials are characterized as materials which possess specific native properties and functions of their own. Ferro electricity, piezoelectricity, magnetism, and energy storage functions are some of the examples. These materials are found in all classes of materials such as metals, polymers, ceramics, and organic molecules. Functional materials are used generally in electromagnetic applications from kHz to THz. These are also often used at optical frequencies where the plasmonic properties of metals assume particular importance. There exists critical importance for functional materials in case of materials for energy such as electro- and magneto caloric materials, and also for energy storage and for solar harvesting functions.
