Abstract

Multi-scaling and the systematic investigation of mesoscopic structures represent a field of fruitful cooperation in physics, chemistry, mineralogy and life sciences. The increasing miniaturization of devices as well as the emphasis of recent research on microstructures with length scales of a few nanometres lead to paradigm changes that may impact not only on our scientific understanding of fine-grained structures but also on the way we will develop device materials in the future. Here the role of interfaces becomes more important, and developments in areas such as ‘domain boundary engineering’ are evidence of this scientific evolution. In addition, nano-porous materials are particularly important in geology and in the development of artificial bones and ultra-light metals. Some of these developments are reviewed in this paper.
