mountain bike brakes

This is probably a long shot but i'm desperate. I'm a first year uni student currently undertaking a project looking at mountaon bike brakes, concentrating on Cantilevers, V-brakes and Disc brakes. I can find plenty of information for how the brakes work and which best etc.. but what i really need to know is how these different brakes are made and the materials used. I've searched everywhere and can't find anything. If anyone knows of any sites or where i can get hold of such information, i would be extremely grateful if you could email me at [email protected]. Please Help!!
