The Samukawa Lab conducts research on ways to generate charged particles (positive and negative ions, electrons) and neutral particles (atoms/molecules) and associated acceleration technologies (including beam technologies), as well as research on particle flow and the latest bio-nano processes.
'NanoBio Integration' promotes the understanding of the structure and functions of the body on a nanoscale and also the development of nanomachines in which bioinspired structures and functions are incorporated and the extract of methodologies that regulate the functions of body components including biomolecules and cells to integrate them into nanodevices.
NCRC was established at University of Tokyo for the purpose of realizing core technologies for the development of the ubiquitous information devices based on nanotechnologies, and is aiming at becoming one of the Center of Excellence (COE) in the world of advanced nano-photonics and electronics.
Backed by the establishment of Center of Excellence as a hub research center and the enhancement of research facilities, the Department of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering has created an environment that provides powerful support for nanoscience and nanoengineering, alongside industry-academy partnerships.
A one-stop research and practical applications center targeted at outside organizations. Current research and personnel development includes five Project Reseach Institutes at the Nanotechnology Research Center, consisting of Class 100 clean rooms and chemical labs. This Center provides state-of-the-art nanoprocessing equipment as well as measuring and evaluation instruments.
The research of the lab interfaces with condensed matter physics, materials science, and biophysics. Current research projects involve the development of synthesis and crystal growth of novel carbon materials such as carbon nanotubes and fullerenes.
