Region of Research

This department focuses on developments of new materials and their processing technologies that contribute to the life-innovation, aiming to realize a sustainable and healthy society from the viewpoint of advanced process science. In particular, we will develop functional materials including magnetorheological fluids that have human-friendly power transmission for next-generation rehabilitation robots. In addition, we will explore processing methods for the life-innovation materials, based on nanostructural controls of various joint configurations including solid-liquid interfaces.
