Alumni “Message”(半導体業界)卒業生のメッセージ From semiconductor industry.

研究室ではナノ粒子挙動と植物を絡めた研究をしておりましたが、現在の会社は半導体製造業界なので、直接的に関係した分野ではありません。しかし、大学時代に学んだことが思わぬ所で役に立つ場面が多々ありました。In Lenggoro lab, I worked on research involving nanoparticle behavior and botanical materials, but my current company is in the semiconductor manufacturing industry, so this is not a field that I was directly involved with. However, there were many situations where what I learned in the university was useful in unexpected places.

学会誌に研究室紹介記事が掲載された An article introducing our group was published in an association journal.

研究室の教育研究方針は、地球規模の社会問題(資源、水、食料生産、気候、生態系)に対して、学問として工学は何をすべきかを考えることである。The educational and research policy of the group is to consider what engineering should do as an academic discipline to address global-scale social issues (resources, water, food production, climate, and ecosystems).

Graduation: 4 students leave for the real world.

粘土系土壌粒子の化学コーティングは水の蒸発を遅らせる。世界初。Chemical-coating of clay-based soil particles slows water evaporation. World’s first.

Plastic sheeting is commonly used to conserve water in crop production, but its waste has become a challenge. We report that a silane coupling agents-based coating can be applied to natural clayey soil samples to suppress water evaporation. 一般的に作物の生産で水を節約するために、プラスチックのシートが使われているが、その廃棄物が課題となった。本研究では、水の蒸発を抑制するために、天然の粘土質土壌にシランカップリング剤系コーティングが適用できることを報告している。
