<p> Most of mixed matters or hybrid materials have been fabricated without consideration of homogeneity or regularity of mixing states, and exhibited simply combined their properties and functions.  Mixing of materials in nanoscale opens new avenues beyond the simply combined ones based on various interactions between the components across the interfaces.  However, wide distributions on size, periodicity, and configuration of the components in the conventionally mixed matters, composites, or hybrid materials give broad interactions between the mixing states.  Regularly ordered mixing would reveal inherent and unknown properties, especially seen in nano-scaled regularity of the mixing.</p>
<p>  In this project, we try to establish a systematic methodology to explore artificial nanohybrid materials, in which binary interactive or cross-correlated substances are tiled or packed regularly in nanoscale by using nano-templates, for example, block copolymers, microstructure of microorganism, etc.  We believe that our methodologies are adopted widely in manufacturing process as well as exploratory research in future materials science.
