Heterostructured materials represent an emerging class of materials that are expected to become a major research field for the communities of materials, mechanics and physics in the next few years. One of the biggest advantages of HS materials is that they can be produced by large-scale industrial facilities and technologies, and therefore can be commercialized without the scaling up and high cost barriers that are often encountered by other advanced materials. This book collects recent papers on the progress in the field of HS materials, especially their fundamental physics. The papers are arranged in a sequence of chapters that will help new researchers entering the field to have a quick and comprehensive understanding of HS materials, including the fundamentals and recent progress in their processing, characterization, and properties.
