I need to study about the variable pitch propeller and its mechanism of adjusting the angel of the blades. And also about the materials used to make propellers and their benefits..

can someone please help me to find sources such as images/videos about the variable pitch propeller? or please answer to those question here. I need basic information.

As for materials, most are aluminum alloys, as they're fairly durable.
