Early measurement of judicial attitudes was undertaken by political scientists, who drew on the far more developed literature on Congress, an institution whose members' views can be arguably summarized on one dimension.

Chemists, materials scientists, and mechanical engineers survey polymer composites in which at least one component is in the nanometer scale in at least one dimension. Among the topics are the state of the art in nanomechanics, characterizing nanocomposites by scattering methods, the mechanical-viscoelastic characterization of nanocomposites, characterizing mechanical and electric properties of nanocomposites, polymer nanocomposites characterized by thermal analysis techniques, and health hazards and recycling and life-cycle assessment of nanomaterials and their composites.
