A trainee Mr. motohashi leaves nims after undergoing 4 week internship program
On November 1, Mr. Motohashi from Tohoku University joined our group to spend 4 weeks under the NIMS Internship Program. Working under the direction of Dr. Tsuchiya, Mr. Motohashi remarkably improved his laboratory skills.
Dr. Tsuchiya, Senior Researcher won a research grant from the Foundation for Promotion of Material Science and Technology of Japan (MST). Research Grant Awarding Ceremony was held at the Japan Academy on November 21, 2018.
The 1ST INTERNATIONAL cONFERENCE ON materials science & engineering in the philippines (Icmsep 2018)
A symposium was held at the 79th JSAP Autumn Meeting, 2018 in Nagoya
class="demo1 btn btn-success" target="_blank">Through a symposium entitled 'Solid state ionics devices for a super smart society - From fundamentals to applications in ICT, AI and energy devices', we introduced the concept that further R&D activities are important for both electronics devices and solid state ionics devices, in support of the advanced information society that is expected to be realized.
We have invented an ionic device, termed as ionic decision-maker, capable of quickly making its own decisions based on previous experience using changes in ionic/molecular concentrations. We then succeeded in demonstrating its operation. Articles appeared in NIKKEI SHIMBUN (Science Agora), NIKKEI SANGYO SIMBUN, NIKKAN KOGYO SHIMBUN and KAGAKU KOGYO NIPPO.
Prof. Guo and Assoc Prof. Rui Yang from Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST) visit our group
Assoc Prof. Rui Yang, a MANA Alumna who worked under Dr. Terabe, came to visit our group accompanying Prof. Xin Guo. They gave lectures at the 623rd MANA Seminar, followed by discussions and lab tours.
Unexpected metal-insulator transition in thick Ca1-xSrxVO3 film was achieved by control of chemical disorder. Paper titled "Unexpected Metal-Insulator Transition in Thick Ca1-xSrxVO3 Film on SrTiO3(100) Single Crystal" was published in Applied Physics Letters.
The article describes the awarding of honorable certificates, medals and cash prizes to Dr. Kazuya Terabe (NIMS/MANA), Prof. Tsuyoshi Hasegawa (Waseda University) and Prof. Masakazu Aono (NIMS/MANA) for the 28th Tsukuba Prize.
