We review recent investigations of conventional and nanoparticle filled polymers using atomic force and optical microscopy, scattering (x-ray, neutron and visible light) to characterize the influence of filler particles on the phase separation morphology and phase diagrams of filled polymer blends and the phase separation and dewetting kinetics of nanoparticle filled polymer films. Emphasis is given to the influence of polymer-surface interactions on the properties of filled polymers.
