Functional and Innovative Solid State Materials for Highly Efficient Energy and Environmental and Biological Concinnity

ABOUT US

Our laboratory researches the analysis, design, and synthesis of solid-state functional materials for energy, environmental and biomedical applications. We are developing materials for fuel cells and lithium-ion secondary batteries, focusing on electrochemical energy with high energy conversion efficiency. Based on the theory of crystal chemistry, we are conducting precise analysis and design of structures. In addition, we are studying the development of bone repair materials using ceramic synthesis processes based on biomineralization and the development of microcapsules for use in drug delivery systems.
