Our goal is the rational understanding of materials which display interesting properties (magnetism, magnetoresistivity, lithium‐rich compounds for energy storage, metastable compounds). The physical and chemical properties of materials can be modified when their particle sizes reach the nanoscopic scale. One major challenge in materials science is the integration of nanostructures as building blocks into complex systems.
