Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology (TUAT) is a university with many “high-research-producers”. The university has about 400 academic-staffs.
Japan’s second “most-productive” university in terms of “Number of papers per academic-staff”
UK-based QS announced the QS Asian University ranking 2018 (Oct. 2017), and TUAT ranked as the top 1% of universities in Asia. In particular, it became the second place in Japan as “the number of papers per academic-staff” which is an indicator of “research power”.

Why 40 deg. C ? This study considered the deposition of submicron particles on living-cell or “human-body”-modelled surface.
Why a fluorescence microscope? Because other analytical tools such as SEM, need low pressure or vacuum condition, which is not “good” for living-system.
空気・液体界面への粒子の輸送を模倣するために、エアロゾル・フロー・システムが構築された。An aerosol flow system has been constructed to mimic the delivery of particles to the air-liquid interface. Continue reading PAPER: Can particles move and deposit, from 25 to 40 deg-C surface? ～40℃表面に微粒子を集積させた流体の制御技術
In April 2018: Six students (D/M/B) graduated, after year(s) worked with us. Here is the updated data of our lab’s 40+ graduates, 11 years after the lab started.
Because “diversity matter” is our lab’s keyword, the graduates’ positions also have diversity.
- Only one company (Toray Industries) has two graduates.
- Four graduates changed the job places.

Using “soot” from a candle burning, we developed two assembly routes to form hydrophilic or hydrophobic layers of carbonaceous nanoparticles. ロウソク燃焼の「煤」を用いて、親水性または疎水性を有するナノ粒子膜の作製する方法を開発。5000年前に中国で開発された、従来の「墨」技術と同じかどうか？
