Utilizing the AIST NanoProcessing Facility and the AIST Technical Service Center, the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) conducts the NanoProcessing Partnership Platform as a part of Nanotechnology Network Japan of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT).
The Nano-Carbon Materials team at the Center develops original synthetic approaches to fabricate rational nanoscale materials as basic building blocks and the hierarchical assembly of these nanomaterials to fundamental elements for nanodevices that would serve as functional components for applications in nanotechnology.
The group's focus is to develop original synthetic approaches to fabricate rational nanoscale materials as basic building blocks and hierarchically assemble these nanomaterials to fundamental elements for nanodevices that would then serve as functional components for applications in nanotechnology.
The lab offers quick and comprehensive solutions matching the needs of clients applying achievements in technology in the areas of nanotechnology, biotechnology, energy-, and environment-related technologies.
The Nano-Materials Research Laboratory has a high tech specialty in sol-gel, organic-inorganic hybrid, advanced analysis/ measurements and MEMS. Using combined expertise, the lab works on the formation of thin film, particle, bulk, control of microstructure and nanostructure, as well as, development of new functional materials and key materials for devices.
The group focuses on the design and fabrication of functional structures, characterization of properties, and development for industrial and energy applications of low-dimensional nanomaterials including graphene, carbon nanotubes, boride, carbide, and oxide nanowires.
