    Environmental Materials and Surface Processing Area

    Professor FUJIMOTO Shinji   Associate Professor TSUCHIYA Hiroaki   Assistant Professor MIYABE Sayaka
    Materials deterioration and damage caused by the interactions with diversified and severe environments are one of social issues. We study the interactions between materials and environments such as aqueous environments and high-temperature atmospheres and also aim to develop new materials with high corrosion and oxidation resistance. A wide range of characterization techniques including electrochemistry is used to examine the properties of metal and semiconductor surfaces. Tailoring the interactions between materials and environments often leads to the formation of unique surface structures. We target on the fabrication of highly ordered nano-scale structured surfaces with enhanced functionalities.

    Biomaterials and Structural Materials Design Area

    Professor NAKANO Takayoshi   Associate Professor ISHIMOTO Takuya   Assistant Professor TODAI Mitsuharu   Assistant Professor MATSUGAKI Aira
    Our investigations include the evaluation of biological tissues, the formation mechanisms of tissues both in vivo and in vitro, and the development of novel biomaterials which can function as or better than the original biological tissues, based on a materials science point of view. We focus on the anisotropy that appears in microstructure, cell migration, crystal growth, etc., in an attempt to control these effects by means of metal-based biomaterials or external fields. More generally and in the long term, we aim to establish “Anisotropy in Materials”, a new research horizon in Materials Science.

    Control of Materials Function and Morphology Area

    Professor UTSUNOMIYA Hiroshi   Associate Professor MATSUMOTO Ryo
    This laboratory is developing novel processes for new materials such as eco-materials, high-strength materials, materials with formability. The evolutions of microstructure, texture and properties during the processes are investigated academically. Tribology in the process is also studied.
