The properties of novel materials and structures are often determined by physical phenomena that are specific to the nanoscale and distinct from bulk properties in the macroscopic world. In nanoscale structures, the importance of surfaces, internal interfaces and quantum effects increases, resulting in new properties that can have high scientific, technological, and economic potential. A thorough understanding of the atomic and molecular building blocks of such systems is required to achieve further progress. Atomic resolution characterisation therefore has a decisive impact on the following scientific research fields:
