In 1992, updated definition given by Komarneni as "composites of more than one Gibbsian solid phase where at least one dimension is in nanometer range and typically all solid phases are in the 1-20 nanometer range")
    • found: Introduction to nanoscale science and technology, 2004 (nanocomposites defined as multiphase materials where one or more phases have at least one dimension of order 100 nm or less; nanocomposites can be classified either as functional materials or as structural materials)

    • found: Nanophotonics, 2004: p. 277 (nanocomposites are random media containing domains or inclusions that are of nanometer size scale; these nanoscopic domains or inclusions also referred to as mesophases, whereas the bulk phase they constitute is called the macroscopic phase)
