Regulation of stereostructures of polymers

Professor Tatsuki Kitayama, Assistant Professor Takafumi Nishiura, Takehiro Kitaura, Yasuhiro Kohsak

   The late 20th century has been the “age of plastics”, as you see them everywhere in everyday life. Polymers or macromolecules are the compounds that constitute plastics, rubbers, textiles and so on, which are normally produced from “monomers” through chemical reactio...

Make use of Waste Heat via Organic Molecules

‐Thermoelectricity of Single Molecular Junctions‐

associate professor Ryo Yamada

   Nowadays, considerable quantity of energy is wasted as heat. Thermoelectric materials that generate electricity from temperature gradients are of particular interest because they can convert the waste heats to useful electricity. Especially, thermoelectric conversion around room temperature...

Intelligent Projection Mapping

Ubiquitous Projection Supporting Daily Activities

Prof. Kosuke Sato, Assoc. Prof. Daisuke Iwai, Assis. Prof. Sei Ikeda, Assis. Prof. Shunsuke Yoshimot

Have you heard about "Projection Mapping"? Projection mapping is one of video expressions in which dynamic image contents are projected onto the surfaces of various objects such as a car or a building. It changes their appearances in such a way that the car is apparently running but actually static ...
