In general, all construction, manufacturing and innovation is based on an appropriate choice of novel high-performance materials with new properties. Indeed, any material elaborated or designed owes its properties to its internal structure, its composition and its state. These materials can be metals, metal alloys, polymers, oxides, composites in single crystal, polycrystalline, amorphous state and essentially of nanometric structure.
