Developing high-strength, light-weight structural materials is one of the prominent issues in materials science. In this session, we discuss an effective material design according to a mille-feuille-type layer structure, which is constructed by alternate stacking of microscopic hard- and soft-layer and expected to realize remarkable high-strength through a unique kink-strengthening phenomenon. Establishing a novel concept “mille-feuille structures and their kink-strengthening” will certainly provide an extended testing ground to develop new alloys and polymers, as next generation light-weight materials.
