Welcome to NIMS GREEN IFCS group homepage

(For Japanese version, please click on the Japanese flag above.)

Interface Computational Science (IFCS) group, Center for Green Research on Energy and Environmental Materials (GREEN), National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS) was originally established in October 2007. The group partially belongs to MANA and MaDIS-cMI2, NIMS as well.

The IFCS group is working on theoretical/computational/data-driven AI researches on energy and environmental issues associated with battery, solar cell and catalyst.

We enjoy discussions about novel theories/computational methods as well as update experimental findings in physics, chemistry and materials science. In particular, we focus on quantitative simulations of electrochemical phenomena at solid-liquid and solid-solid interfaces on the atomic and electronic scales, and mainly deal with transition metal oxide and semiconductor electrodes as well as water and organic solvents.

As interface simulation is a cutting-edge research in the world, we enjoy the update theories, methods & various interfacial phenomena with high-quality researchers working on similar targets.

The group is seeking contributions to both theoretical/computational sciences and practical physics, chemistry and nano-science. In this respect, we are interested in understanding realistic systems/phenomena, and pleased to discuss with experimentalists, intensively. From application point of view, we're working on issues in batteries, catalysts & solar cel etc., and have collaborations with experimentalists as well as industry researchers. Of course, we're very happy to have discussions of theory and computational techniques as expert computational scientists.

Recent news:

  • Tateyama Laboratories will be open at (1) Department of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering, Graduate School of Advanced Science and Engineering, Waseda University, (2) Tokyo Tech Academy for Convergence of Materials and Informatics, Tokyo Institute of Technology. We can accept ph.D students (+ internship students) who would like to do theoretical/computational/data-driven AI researches on battery, solar cell, and catalyst via these graduate schools.
