Research Summary JST-ERATO Yamauchi’s Materials Space-Tectonics Project
In this ERATO, we will create novel “inorganic nanosolids” containing internal nanospaces, as unprecedented nanospace materials, and develop several methodologies for their effective integration with the aim of exploiting functions obtained based on the synergistic fusion of various supramolecular, photonic, and magnetic behaviors occurring in nanospace. We will efficiently combine ‘machine learning’ with our inorganic synthesis methods to accelerate the optimization of synthetic parameters for the design of target materials, and to select proper patterns of combination of each inorganic block for the integration of materials.
Qualification The applicant should (or is expected to) have a Ph.D. degree in the field of chemistry, materials science, physics, applied physics, etc. We are seeking people who can run the top-level researches aligned to the JST-ERATO Yamauchi’s Materials Space-Tectonics Project.
