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.

Towards the realization of green/life innovations, we are challenging to clarify the mechanisms underlying the functionalization of biological tissues and organs, and further the development of innovative biomaterials and aerospace materials, based on Materials Scientific approaches. We focus on the anisotropic hierarchical microstructures that determine the mechanical functionalization in biological system and develop novel materials which can realize superior functions even under extreme environment involving biological conditions, super high temperature by using additive manufacturing (AM) and computer simulation technologies. The aim of our research is to develop a new scientific principle “Materials Science for Anisotropy”.

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.

From the perspective of fundamental properties of surface/interface physics, we have performed education and researches to improve the electron-determinate functionalities, including magnetism/electron transport/tunneling properties, of nanomaterials; metallic thin layers/multilayer films/artificial lattices/nano-magnets.
