With recent advances in emerging technologies, materials design encounters new challenges. With more nano particles inside, processing experiences thinner and faster deformations than ever, which should be reflected in materials design. However, little is known about the flow characteristics of such complex fluids and less is known about how to design and control the process. Industrial coating materials such as ink, slurry and paste form heterogeneous microstructure as they contain various components. Therefore, it is necessary to incorporate the concept of heterogeneity into materials processing and to develop the methodology to quantitatively analyze the heterogeneous nature observed in both materials and processing. It will be a big challenge to establish a systematic protocol to characterize the materials and maintain uniform quality during manufacturing. In this talk, I will show illustrative examples that prove the heterogeneous nature in different length scales, covering the length scale from nano, micro to macro. With many illustrative examples of both system and methodology, I will deliver my idea on the perspective and strategy of the researches, which will be a new paradigm of materials processing as well as of materials design.
