Huge knowledge and tools have been accumulated by our predecessors.
At the same time, various challenging problems
due to the expanded human activities have become evident.
It is getting more and more important not only to memorize information
but also to create and add new knowledge
and to link and utilize knowledge freely.
We are engaged in research on materials nanotechnology in order to contribute to the technologies such for clean energy systems, environmental problems, and information/communication systems. We human-beings have realized material wealth by utilizing various chemical elements. However, limitation for various resources became evident, and new different approaches are highly demanded. Various functions can be realized using even "abundant elements" such as carbon and silicon, by changing their nanostructures. New materials having excellent properties are reported daily, but the practical application of nanotechnology is still limited now because it is not easy to produce such "small matters" at large scales. Through understanding "why" nanomaterials form, thinking freely "how" to produce them, I am trying to produce better materials more easily and to contribute to the sustainable technological society.
Let's learn well, think and discuss freely, and take on big challenges together.
