Functional ceramic materials have to be developed in an integrated fashion, where design, synthesis, characterization, modelling and behaviour in applications throughout their life cycles will be considered in a concerted manner. Novel functionalities of materials will have to be adaptive and materials will have to adjust their characteristics in response to external stimuli. These ambitions are providing challenges in experimental characterization, as only the recording of multiple signals on the atomic scale can give full insight in the relevant properties. The aim of our present high resolution TEM activities is to provide quantitative materials data on the atomistic and nanometre scale that can be used for virtual materials design and to understand of structure property relationships.

In the present lecture, several examples from our recent work will be discussed which are related to processes which are of high societal relevance in energy materials, membrane technologies and functional materials for future information technology.
