Interfaces and Properties of Advanced Materials
Internal interfaces are decisive for many properties of materials. Both functional and structural properties of interfaces are briefly reviewed on selected examples. Approaches to the grain boundary classification are discussed in the context of the complex relationship between microstructure and material properties. Implications for grain boundary engineering are mentioned.
