The Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Center proactively promotes industrial applications of nanotechnology while carrying out bottom-up and top-down technologies.
The Protonic NanoMachine Group aims at the ultimate understanding of the mechanisms of self-assembly and its regulation, conformational switching, force generation, and energy transduction by biological macromolecular complexes.
Research in the group focuses mainly on molecular signaling systems that transmit and convert cell and gene information, in which dynamic organization into the bio-system is deeply related to the function. Techniques including imaging technique of single molecules in 3D and real time aer being developed to visualize and manipulate single molecules in bio-systems and the behavior, structural changes and physical and chemical properties of individual bio-molecules acting in bio-molecular systems will be monitored in real time and space.
The protonic NanoMachine Project focuses on the roles of protons as energy and signal carriers in the complex network formed by a vast number of macromolecular nanomachines that support various activities of life.
The center is an interdisciplinary research organization, which focuses on a bottom-up strategy based on self-organization of atoms and molecules as well as a top-down strategy based on semiconductor technology to create a totally new field of nano-science and technology. This research center also aims to contribute and play an important part in the establishment nanotechnology network in Japan.
RIKEN carries out high level experimental and research work in a wide range of fields, including physics, chemistry, medical science, biology, and engineering, covering the entire range from basic research to practical application.
Research includes: Three-dimensional multi-layered tera byte optical storage with gold nano-particles; Chiral nanophotonics; Near-field Vibrational Nanophotonics; Plasmonic Band Gap Devices; Plasmonic Metamaterials; Metallic Nanolens.
Research target is establishment of new evaluation technique for MEMS / NEMS material properties. Research of silicon nanolithography technique and development of MEMS/NEMS devices are also performed.
This project is about the ultimate nanocarbons "exotic nanocarbons", which are expected to make innovations possible in a wide number of fields ranging from the environment, energy, resources and ICT to biotechnology and medicine. Four distinguished researchers with differing backgrounds in nanotechnology were invited to participate in this project and they, together with Shinshu University and participating companies, are conducting joint research on a wide range of topics with the goal of making various advanced innovations.
Technology Research Association for Single Wall Carbon Nanotubes (TASC), a consortium of nine companies and a public research institution, was founded on May 24, 2010. TASC is engaging in research and development on Single-Wall Carbon Nanotubes and Graphene and aiming to establish a new industry on their composite materials.
The group is studying manufacture of the new device adapting the position sensor (encoder) and silicone micro machining technology which considered the application to a robot etc., development of the optical parts used by fiber-optic communications, and nanotechnology.
The lab's main interest lies in the studies of physical and chemical phenomena that take place in nanometer-scale regions as well as the applications of such phenomena in photo-electronic devices.
Research activities at the Ohno Lab cover the areas of preparation, characterization and application of compound semiconductor quantum structures for high speed devices.
The group has been developing the methods for explicating the determinant factors of physical properties of nano-particles, thin film materials, and materials used for micro structures.
The center consists of several individual research groups and labs that deal with nano-related research.
