Enabling rapid gene analysis!

Professor Yoshinobu Baba, et al.,
Chemical and Biological Engineering

Although material separation for gene analysis usually has a tradeoff between speed and purity, separation through a nanopillar array, or an array of pillars with a diameter of 500 nm, has achieved higher purity at higher speed. This technique enables rapid gene analysis.

One step toward achieving a quantum computer

Associate Professor Naoyuki Katayama, and Professor Hiroshi Sawa, et al.,
Material, Physics and Engineering

In collaborative research with the University of Tokyo and Osaka University, we have grown large crystals of perovskite copper oxide and observed that their orbital degree of freedom does not freeze at extremely low temperatures. This finding can lead to development of a quantum spin liquid―a material state comparable to superconductivity or superfluidity of helium, which is useful for achieving a quantum computer.

Blue without pigment!
New material conceived from bird feathers

Research fellow Yumiko Otsuka, Professor Takahiro Seki, and Associate Professor Yukikazu Takeoka,
Molecular Design and Engineering

Bird feathers look blue because of structural coloration, much like the surface of a compact disc (CD) shining in many colors. We have applied this principle to developing a polymer gel with a thermally-varying volume with regularly arranged pores. The material, containing no pigment, changes its color depending on the temperature. Unlike CDs, this novel material shows colors independently of angles.

Superconducting electrons without superconductivity!?

Hideki Sakamoto (Doctoral course), et al.,
Crystalline Material Science

High-temperature copper oxide superconductors have particularly high transition temperatures (yet much lower than freezing) compared with other superconductors. Our experiments reveal that superconducting electrons remain in these materials when the temperature is elevated to show electrical resistance after leaving the superconducting state. This finding is expected to help achieve superconductivity at higher temperatures in the future.

Messages from Graduates

 

Ayaka Hitomi

Shiseido Company, Limited

What ignited my passion for competition

The days in the university were completely the opposite of those in my high school time. The subjects taught in my department covered the fundamentals engineering knowledge as well as more specialized contents. All of the female colleagues whom I became familiar with were hard workers, so I needed to make efforts to win the competition to enter the course and the laboratory of my interest. As a part of my basic characteristic, I never hesitate to go forward once after making a decision. So, my desire to get victories has been always kept stimulated.

At the beginning of my university life, I was not going to join the graduate school, but finally I decided to. This is because I was affected by words of my friends ‘Of course, I am joining the graduate school for further study’. In addition, I wanted to develop carriers related to research and development. I have been involved in a research on genetic engineering, which was interesting for me. After the graduation, I was successfully employed as a member of a research and development division of a company.

In the first year, as a company person, I was in charge of development of a new product. Since the third year as R&D worker, I am engaged in a research about a new material for future products. I am challenging to develop new materials with respect to chemical mechanisms.
This is obviously thanks to my 6 years effort in Nagoya University, which provided me with organized understanding of various fields systematically.
I do appreciate my friends’ help in the university environment. I also sincerely want to say thanks to Nagoya University.

Research is a process of continuous brave challenging

Many researches on biological engineering in Nagoya University are at the highest level in Japan, which attracted me to join the school of engineering, Nagoya University. I did not have confidence in achieving something new while I am good at working effectively under a given standard. When I was a master student, I decided to enter the doctor course and contribute my whole life to researches on organic chemistry.

In the future, I may not be able to survive in our society without having my original strength as a researcher. I noticed it could be risky not having skills to find new problems which could be challenged with my own new idea. Such feelings have changed my daily attitude against everyday life.

In the second year of my PhD, the achievement in my research, which is the extension of the research for my master’s degree, was published on a newspaper. This is obviously not only thanks to my effort but also to Nagoya University. Professors in Nagoya University are relatively young. They support our challenges, which was also helpful for my success. After completing of graduate school, I went to USA as postdoctoral worker to get something new for me.
My challenges will continue until I will be a brave intellectual which is defined as the education goal in Nagoya University.

Challenge the world's first. Happiness in the research is similar to those in work

I joined the Faculty of Engineering, Nagoya University, because it is a locally famous university in my region. But I did not feel that the studies are interesting and spent former half time of the university life for joining a short-term language study program and working as a university festival committee member. I started to look for a job from my third year, where I did not find any attractive companies.

Then, joining a laboratory was the important turning point in my career. The research activities, where I need to find and challenge a problem which is unsolved in the world, were completely different from the lectures. Through repetitive trials to verify my own hypothesis about a problem which has not been solved with respect to experimental results, I sincerely have enjoyed physically analyzing what was going on there until the end of the master course spending three years.

I engaged in the development of X-ray device, such as digital mammography for detection of breast cancer. Then our team developed the technology that realized the smallest exposure dose in the world and presented at an academic conference in the United States.
In a development phase, we need to solve many problems. Processes for solving them, where we need to physically analyze what is going on and create a hypothesis to be verified as the researches in the university, are interesting. My goal is to develop a new technology that does not currently exist in the world and realize it as a new product.

The department of engineering has opened a wider future than my expectation

I want to learn physics and deepen the knowledge. My obscure future goal was to be a researcher and firstly tried to enter the science department, but I could not pass the entrance exam and finally found the physics engineering department. The department provided me with fundamentals of physics and a variety of researches practical to our society, which made my view wider. Then, in my fourth grade, I have chosen a topic of fundamental physics for my graduation thesis under my original plan. The title of my research was “Elucidating the mechanisms of high-temperature superconductor appearing”. My experience in my three years of research life rages from producing crystal of copper oxide to experiments with the facilities in oversea universities.

I have chosen to continue the research. I am currently working in Tokyo University after getting the doctoral degree and research experiences in the MIT & Iowa State University. I am still working on the same research topic and challenging to release a new hypothesis by using my original experiment apparatus.

Nagoya University is not the best university in rankings. The culture of Nagoya University, however, gathers hard working students, which made me motivated. It is not easy to elucidate and explain the phenomenon of superconductivity only with simple ideas. However, research activities in physics, which allows me to understand various phenomena, are very attractive for me and exactly what I wanted to do. I am sincerely enjoying them.

Engaged in the development of the automobile for the next generation with communication technology that attracted me in my high school age

Although I was not good at math and scientific subjects, I became to be interested in internet and telecommunication system when my father gave me a computer. Then, I finally joined the department of engineering in Nagoya University. A number of research topics including image processing and robotics were attractive for me. I finally came to a conclusion that the topics are applications of technologies related to signal processing. In the fourth year, I have chosen to join a laboratory which studies communication technology which I have been interested in. After the graduation, I entered this company to develop the technology in the field. Now I am engaged in the circuit design of vehicle LAN, where ECU signals are exchanged to control parts on the vehicles.

I develop products with desired functionalities by applying the communication theory learned in the university and the circuit design technology learned in the company in my job, which is very exciting. As patents and presentations in academic conferences, I released new technologies which are achieved by our research and development for future communication standard, where my knowledge obtained through the research activity in the university was useful It is used for conference presentations and patent application.

Steady development of electronic control of a vehicle may be results in further development of telecommunication technology such as Wireless LAN in the future. My goal is to provide a new technology for the users and will continue to pursue technologies for the future.

I will not finish robot only as dream

I joined the Electrical Electronic and Information Engineering, since I was interested in robot when I was a high school. At the time, I did not even imagine that I would be a researcher. But in the graduate school, I started to desire to create robots for practical usage rather than ones for dreams, being stimulated in scientific meetings held in oversea countries. I found myself that I am on the carrier as a researcher.

One of my research themes is a power assist robot that helps complex movements as the back joint of a person. I am seeking not only conventional methods, but also new ones that may control speed and direction that a person would want to move, on the basis of pressure distribution of the contacting area of a human body and a robot.

Another theme is autonomous mobile robot that can be applied to security and assistance. In order to work automatically and accurately in different environments such as indoor and outdoor, I am seeking algorithms controlled by reliable signals at any moment by using multiple signals generated from accelerometers and GPS and other sensors. To realize a useful robot, which won’t end up just as a dream, I am working on challenges to build a control system for human life and environment.

Megumi Sofue

Komaki City Hospital

As a clinician from school of Engineering

In my childhood, the possible career selection was either robot development or doctor. Both of them could not be given up. After achieving my initial plan to get a Master’s degree in engineering that is depending on my own decision, I entered the School of Medicine Nagoya University. After the graduation, I took the way to be a trauma surgery in the United States and experienced real medicals in South America. Since then I am working as an emergency medicine physician in Japan, which is my home country.

In recent years, it is said that the cooperation with engineering and medicine called "Medicine-Engineering collaborative", is important. In fact, from both of my engineering and medical point of view, I feel engineering researchers and clinicians have entirely different concepts. A doctor, particularly, in a case of emergency medication, has to keep making a decisions to deal with fluctuating situations because the patients always may change his or her condition in a few minutes. On the other hand, an engineering researcher is allowed to continue the research activity in the laboratory without observing real industrial field site until he or she is convinced for a given issue for human future. I think for a doctor and engineering researcher, flow of the time is quite different each other.

Recently I often have the opportunities to exchange opinions with professors of engineering. Without knowing the difference of each general concepts, discussions cannot get agreement. I want to work as a bridge between engineering research and medical practice, to release the industrial technologies in Japan to the world.

I wanted to be a researcher. As a researcher I can enjoy solving difficult problems and getting research results

When I was an undergraduate student, I was just wondering that I would probably work for a large company in my region after completing master course.
However, my mind has completely changed after allocation to a laboratory.
I found nothing can be more interesting than the research processes that we get results through simulations and experiments. This experience made me to make decision to be a researcher.

When I was a doctoral student, I spent whole day and night to solve problems in the laboratory for many days so that I can meet the deadline of a paper submission.
One day at dawn, when I could finally solve the problems, I was so impressed and cried out.

Now I still enjoy as a researcher the processes to solve difficult problems and getting over them.
The fundamental theory for my research theme, "Numerical simulation in the electromagnetic wave and light" was made in my graduate school time. This is an interdisciplinary field of physics and mechanical engineering where the competition is relatively easier in the world.
I believe that Nagoya University provided me with a great environment, because I could challenge new research topics with my interests with professors not only in Nagoya University but also in other universities. I will continue releasing may research achievements to the world.

The practical structural design and research that I learned in the university from my supervisor is fundamentals for me as a structural architect.

I joined the School of Engineering, Nagoya University and studied in the Department of Civil Engineering and Architecture Architectural Studies, where my father also studied, because I wanted to share working background with him. I was interested in style design as well as mechanism and theory of things, which is a typical characteristic of a student in science course. Through working on draft and design tasks, I became to be able to express space and form of buildings strongly and beautifully. As a result, I was involved in structure design, which is to create frame of a building with columns and beams on the basis of rationality and mechanical sensibility.

I was belonged to Omori laboratory which was trying to develop software for structural design support which may achieve an optimal solution of the steel frame structure taking its cost into consideration. After the graduation, I worked in a design office of a structure architect, “Yoshiharu Kanebako”. He is a professional of a structural designer and was working with famous architects. I got doctoral degree with research results that were obtained through practical experience in the office.

I established structural design division in the architectural firm owned by my father and challenging practical application of computational design, which is a part of my doctoral thesis as well as conventional structural design, for further business expansion. While management of the company, I taught attractive points of structural design as a lecturer at Nagoya University. By taking the advantages of Nagoya University that allowed me to meet the world of structural design, I'm going to create new technology and architecture in cooperation with the professors in the future.

An encountering that made me interested in civil engineering research

“I have chosen the school of Engineering, because I was good at scientific subjects.” “I will not regret that I have chosen Civil engineering, because it is familiar subject.” These are what I thought when I decided my academic career. So, I was not a good student. Although some of the subjects were interesting for me, the graduation research in the fourth year was honestly boring. I joined the master course to find something interesting but nothing was there. Finally I decided to leave the university and told my supervisor about it. Then, he told me "Well then, can you perform this calculation as a part-time job?" After this episode, I started unofficial support of his research.

The content was mathematical modeling of human behavior to draw up a transportation plan, which was related to my graduation research. Once I started to work on it with serious mind, I became to be sincerely interested in it. Arrangements of formulas may results in different answers. I was surprised at myself being fascinated with research activities. Sometimes I was reading a textbook in my car while waiting for a traffic light.

After graduation I got a job at a company, but I gradually became to desire to advance a new original research and came back to the university to join the doctoral program. Now I conduct a research related to transportation planning as an associate professor with the professor who was my supervisor at the time, also involved in projects funded by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transportation. I am motivated to research because I want to publish my original research results on famous journal papers.

The Nobel Prize, and beyond

The Nobel Prize, and beyond

Blue LEDs achieving tremendous power-saving world

Blue LEDs made of GaN are already common. The complete three primary colors―red, green, and blue―together enable precise rendering of any colors, including white. Almost all displays, from large screens to smartphones, now use LEDs. LEDs lamps are also widespread, and 37.9% of traffic lights in Japan use LEDs*1. The Japanese Government has announced its policy toward shifting to 100% next-generation lighting by 2020*2. Replacing all the existing incandescent and fluorescent lamps with LEDs will reportedly reduce power consumption by an amount comparable to power produced by 13 nuclear power plants*3.

*1: The National Police Agency, data as of the end of March 2013
*2: The Japanese Government’s “New Growth Strategy Basic Policies” (decided by the Cabinet on December 30, 2009)
*3: The Institute of Energy Economics, Japan (June 2011)

Liberality and dedication

GaN has great potential to achieve an energy-saving society.
This research is now underway at the School of Engineering of Nagoya University. Professor Amano is leading this, also outside academia companies are participated in.
The cutting-edge laboratories share a unique, liberal but tense atmosphere, in which professors and students both dedicate themselves to research day and night, and have the freedom to discuss research issues beyond their hierarchical relations. Such “liberality” and “dedication” characterize the Amano laboratory as well as other laboratories across the School.

GaN for more than just lighting

GaN, which is expected to solve many environmental problems, has applications beyond LEDs. GaN is also a promising semiconductor that can replace silicon (Si), which is the current major semiconductor. For example, replacing silicon power semiconductors with GaN semiconductors for controlling and supplying power to automobiles and railways, industrial devices, and home appliances will reduce energy loss significantly from 5% to 0.75%. Replacing all existing power semiconductors with GaN semiconductors, together with the shifting to LED illuminations, will achieve power saving comparable to half the power generated by nuclear power plants operating in and before 2011*4. GaN also increases its use in, for example, ultraviolet emitters and high-speed communications devices.

The School’s philosophy leading the research to the next realm

Their dedication comes from engineers’ mission to create products that are useful for society. Blue LEDs are just one typical example. Researchers at the School share the same philosophy―they freely devote themselves to research and development that will improve the society. Such ambitious researchers have been leading and will lead their pioneering research into the next stage.
