Study of the intricate connection between the design of material distributions (also called morphology or microstructure) and the final properties of the material system has been an attractive research theme for material science community. Such analysis provides ability to synthesize the microstructures exhibiting desired properties. This theme encompasses several material systems including porous materials , steels and welds , composites , powder metallurgy , 3D printing , energy storage devices as batteries , and energy converting devices like bulk hetero-junction solar cells . Microstructure-sensitive design has been used to tailor a wide variety of properties including strengths, heat and mass diffusivities, energy storage capacity and lifetime, and energy conversion efficiency.
