In the mesoscopic scale, the situation is even more complicated.
Foams as hierarchical materials are dominated by the arrangement and distri-bution of gas bubbles on a macroscopic scale, as well as by thickness and composition of lamella on a mesoscopic scale.
A small sample of the individual chapter topics includes arborescent polymers with a mesoscopic scale, living polymerization of ylides, highly branched functional polymer architectures using click chemistry, and precision polyolefins.
Remarkable works were done on the latter point during the last years, proving how useful this technique could be to study cavitations at a mesoscopic scale for high hydrostatic fatigue conditions [2] or to detect local changes of physical and chemical properties by measuring X-ray attenuation [16-20].
On a mesoscopic scale, the two materials exhibit noticeable differences, as illustrated in figure 2.
Such interplay can be exploited as a mean to control and manipulate the spin degree of freedom at mesoscopic scale useful for phase-coherent spintronics applications.

It is well-known that crystalline polymers construct hierarchical structures ranging from crystal structure and crystallite arrangement on the angstrom scale to spherulite on the mesoscopic scale via lamella on the nanometer scale [1-3].
A major advance in the simulation of stress and strain at the mesoscopic scale has been achieved using the extended elasto-plastic self-consistent model.
The generation of multiple jets from needleless electrospinning has been explained as the waves of an electrically conductive liquid self-organize in mesoscopic scale and finally form jets when the applied eclectic field intensity is above a critical value (8).
The quantum effects were observed at the mesoscopic scale, intermediate between microscopic and macroscopic.
