This book introduces a variety of basic sciences and applications of the nanocomposites and heterostructures of functional oxides. The presence of a high density of interfaces and the differences in their natures are described by the authors. Both nanocomposites and heterostructures are detailed in depth by researchers from each of the research areas in order to compare their similarities and differences. A new interfacial material of heterostructure of strongly correlated electron systems is introduced.

Paolo Mele is currently Associate Professor Lecturer at Research Center for Environmentally Friendly Materials Engineering, Muroran Institute of Technology (Muroran, Hokkaido, Japan). He obtained a master degree on Chemistry and PhD in Chemical Sciences at Genova University (Italy). In 2003 he moved to ISTEC-SRL in Tokyo to study melt-textured ceramic superconductors. Then he worked as post-doc at Kyoto University (JSPS fellowship) from 2004 to 2007, at Kyushu Institute of Technology (JST fellowship) from 2007 to 2011 and at Hiroshima University (as lecturer) from 2011 to 2014 before reaching his current position. His research interests include materials for energy and sustainable development (superconductors and thermoelectrics); fabrication and characterization of thin films of oxides, ceramics and metals; study of the effect of nanostructuration on the physical properties; thermal transport; vortex matter. He is author of more than 90 papers in scientific international journals, 4 book chapters, 2 patents and contributed to hundreds of communications at international conferences. He edited the book "Oxide Thin Films, Multilayers and Nanocomposites" for Springer in 2015.
