エアロゾル学会・高橋幹二賞 TAKAHASHI AWARD (Aerosol Sci. & Tech., Japan) “Deposition of submicron aerosols by a closed-loop flow system” 閉ループ式エアロゾル流によるサブミクロン粒子の沈着

本論文で示された知見により、沈着効率が悪い従来法に代わって本手法を気液界面細胞曝露に応用できれば有用である。The method presented here may potentially be applied for the deposition and analysis of submicron particles on various types of substrate (i.e. air-liquid interface) without the need for vacuum imaging analysis (e.g. electron microscopy).

卒業生が開発した、機械学習で”摩擦学”アプリ Alumni: A machine learning “Tribology” app.

Note: 開発者の卒論のテーマは植物由来原料を添加した燃焼合成法による二次電池用粉末の合成でした。英国の大学院に進学し、「摩擦」研究者になりました。The subject of the developer’s bachelor thesis was the synthesis of powders for rechargeable batteries by combustion synthesis using plant-based materials. She went to postgraduate school in the UK and became a ‘friction’ researcher.

著書 Nanoparticles Carrying Biological Molecules (Book Chapter)

微粒子工学の展開:”Fast”先端材料から”Slow”農学系研究へ (Talk) From “Fast” Electronic Materials to “Slow” Agricultural Studies

農学系研究のスピードは「遅い」であった。有機的、学際的プロジェクトは、工学系学生がミクロとマクロのスケールでシステムを学び、物質のbadとgood側面を考えるための良い媒体である。 The speed of agricultural research was “slow”. An organic, interdisciplinary project is a good medium for engineering students to learn a system in micro- and macro-scales and to consider the “good” and “bad” sides of the matter.

Open Lab (4 Aug. 2017) for high-school students and parents.

On 4 Aug. as an event of OPEN CAMPUS, more than 70 high students and their parents were in our lab (together with our next room: Takiyama Lab). We demonstrated an experiment on material transfer: Spraying liquid (solution) to produce micrometer sized droplets (mist), and measuring (in real-time) the size of their dried powder.
