Self-organization, which allows the appearance of structured domains from a process that is generally out of equilibrium, has many applications in the field of nano-structures. It leads for example to the spontaneous ordering of gold nanoparticles in liquid crystal domains, or to the growth of quantum dots in strained semiconductors. Self-organization allows a control of the growth geometries and the manipulation of the properties of the produced nano-structures without invasive manipulation. If the dynamical mechanisms of self-organized systems find their natural application at the nano-scale, their understanding and use remains a challenge at the atomic scale, both from the fundamental and modeling point of view, as well as for their application e.g. in microelectronic systems.
