TUAT “moonshot” project PI, Dr. T. Suzuki on NHK-TV (Feb.6)“昆虫食”が世界を救う”Insect Food” will save the world.

多様な方法で「貧栄養のエサ」から「良質のたんぱく質を作り出す」昆虫の驚きの能力や、飼育による環境負荷が小さい「地球にやさしい食糧源」としての可能性も見えてきた。various ways, and their potential as an “earth-friendly food source” with a small environmental impact from their farming, have also come to be recognized.

Aerosols deposit behind the sheet (Plant leaf model)?(植物葉モデル)薄板の裏側までエアロゾルが沈着する?

Simultaneous deposition of submicron aerosols onto both surfaces of a plate substrate by electrostatic forces We demonstrate one-step deposition of submicrometer-sized particles suspended in the gas-phase onto a plate type substrate using an electrostatic-assisted spray system. The particles were deposited on plate-type metallic surfaces, on both front and rear sides of the substrate. This “both-side”…

Aerosol & colloid route for Raman-substrate. To detect organic molecules at ppb levels. ラマン分光用基材の調製にエアロゾルやコロイド手法。有機分子をppbレベルまで検出

The substrate (chip) was made by structuring nanoparticles, and the detection accuracy of a trace (model: a pesticide) component using Raman scattering spectroscopy was improved. ナノ粒子の構造化による基板(チップ)形成を行い、ラマン散乱分光を用いた微量な(モデル:農薬)成分の検出精度を向上させた。
