About Tsuji Lab

Tsuji Laboratory aims at building a sustainable society and conducts researches on earth-friendly functional thin film materials effectively using resources. We are also working on developing device applications ranging from nano to micro scale size.

Thin film processing

Nanotechnology brings innovations widely to information/communication, energy/enviroment, and bio/medicals by adding novel functions to materials by controlling their structures at nanometer-scale. We are trying to establish the base of materials nanotechnology. Nanotechnology can bring innovations widely even if elements are confined to just carbon and silicon, and contributes to sustainable technological society. But nanomaterials can never be made in macro-scale if we artificially manipulate each atoms/molecules. Self-organization, i.e. spontaneous formation of materials from numerous atoms/molecules, is the key. We are trying to fundamentally understand the processes of chemical reactions of atoms/molecules, formation of nanostructures, and evolution of higher-order structures through both experiments and numerical simulations. We are also actively conducting industry-academia joint projects to realize practical applications by utilizing these nanomaterials technologies.
