The structure and physical properties of materials, such as amorphous and crystalline polymers and their solutions,  composites of polymer with solgels and semiconductors, are studied using  Laser Raman Spectroscopy and Differential Scanning Calorimetry. The fractal and multifractal characteristics of complex processes are studied by the analyses: Rescaled Range, Detrended Fluctuation,  Average Wavelet Coefficient and Entropy in Natural Time.  Multifractal Analysis of Complex Processes Material Science Foundations of Quantum Theory and Consciousness The effect of observation on the outcomes of a stochastic process is typically treated by quantum theory. The fractal and other statistical characteristics of appropriately sampled electronic noise under physophysical conditions, examines the role of consciousness in shaping physical reality.
