Research Teams

Advanced Materials Research Team

Team Leader:Don N. Futaba

The Advanced Materials Research Team focuses on the R&D of preparation technology of nanomaterials applied in a wide range of applications from nanodevices to composite materials.

Nano-Device Team

Team Leader:Takeo YAMADA

Aiming to the application of carbon nanotubes (CNTs), the Nano-Device Team is developing NRAM (Nanotube Random Access Memory) devices, which are memory devices based on CNTs, and high-performance energy storage devices using CNT films as a component. Through these efforts, we aim for application development of CNT-based devices.

Two-Dimensional Materials Nano-Device Team

Team Leader:Takatoshi YAMADA

2D material nanodevice team aims developments defect-free/functional transfer processes and doping techniques toward electronic and optics devices of 2D nano material such as graphene and transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs).

Functional Materials Design Team

Team Leader:Ken KOKUBO

The Functional Materials Design Team will further deepen the process and composite technologies of nanocarbons, including carbon nanotubes developed by the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), and jointly develop applications for rubber, resin, metal composite materials, green energy device components, etc. that are useful for well-being in our society in cooperation with companies, aiming to promote the CNT industry in Japan. We also develop new seeds by fusing with other functional materials.

Chemical Characterization Team

Team Leader:Toshiya OKAZAKI

The Chemical Characterization Team is developing various characterization methods of nanocarbons for their applications. For instance, the characteristics of various carbon nanotubes (CNTs), the CNT dispersion state in dispersion liquids and composite materials, and AI technology for nanocarbon materials have been studied.
