Abstract: Stars evolving through the Asymptotic Giant Branch (AGB) are generally recognized as the most efficient stellar dust manufacturers, owing to the thermodynamic conditions of their winds, extremely favourable to condensation of gaseous molecules into solid particles.
In this contribution we present a review of the results obtained by modelling dust formation in the winds of AGB stars, the applications of these results to the characterization of evolved stellar populations in the Milky Way and nearby galaxies, and the possibilities offered by the launch of the James Webb Space Telescope.
