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.

TUAT: Japan’s second “most-productive” university in terms of “Number of papers per academic-staff”. 教員あたりの学術論文数が国内2位(農工大)

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,…

40℃の表面に気中微粒子を沈着させた流体制御 Can aerosol particles move/deposit, from 25 to 40 ℃ surface?

閉鎖空間における沈着を考慮したエアロゾルフローシステムを構築した。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。An aerosol flow system has been constructed to mimic the delivery of particles to the air-liquid interface. Potentially be applied for the deposition and analysis of submicron particles on various types of substrate without the need for vacuum imaging analysis..

液中粒子の表面電荷とそれらのエアロゾル化時の荷電との関係 Between surface charges of colloidal particles and their corresponded aerosols.

Interaction between surface charge (zeta potential) of colloidal nanoparticles and the charge induced droplets suspended in the gas phase by electrospray is investigated for the first time. 液相中のナノ粒子の表面電荷(ゼータ電位)と気相中操作(静電噴霧)により懸濁液滴の荷電(電荷)の間の相互作用について初めての研究。

卒業生は今どこに?Where are our graduates now? (Lenggoro Lab)

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….
