About Our Laboratory

A suspension or slurry is a liquid containing spherical particles of a polymer or inorganic material. Microparticles are often used as additives, sometimes to reinforce the mechanical strength of materials (fillers) and sometimes to add new functionality. They are used in a variety of fields, including pharmaceutical particles, fuel cell electrode slurries, metal pastes, paints, cosmetics, semiconductor particles, and functional polymer particles. Our laboratory studies the functions and properties of such particulate dispersion systems.

We have several recreation events such as cherry blossom viewing party (spring), drinking party after the successful completion of entrance examination for master course (summer), mini-trip (autumn), farewell party (winter) and etc. To perform active researches, relaxation is also necessary. Let's have fun with us!
