Nanotechnology Platform (Molecule and Material Synthesis)

Project overview

CIST has been selected for the project of institutions with the equipment necessary for nanotechnology research and related functions in a nanotechnology research environment, and has a state-of-the-art research environment for industry-academia-government researchers nationwide. The university receives financial support from the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology for the expenses involved in the operation of shared facilities and the construction of a support system that is easy for researchers to use.

Project goal

This project is aimed to build a nationwide nanotechnology research platform of close cooperation between cutting-edge nanotechnology-related research facilities and institutions with know-how on their utilization, and to promote shared use of the platform by diverse users in industry, academia and government, providing individual users the shortest approach to problem solving while advancing industry-academia-government collaboration and interdisciplinary fusion. The Molecule and Material Synthesis Platform supplies advanced equipment required for nanotechnology molecule and material synthesis, as well as comprehensive support not only with equipment use but also data analysis, for all users in industry, academia and government.

Support details

CIST provides consistent support from material synthesis research and development of users’ nanotechnology knowledge to final product evaluation by organically linking the following types of support for molecular substance synthesis and its property evaluation with external, shared facilities: 1) support for measuring the synthesis process by NMR and chemical spectroscopes related to molecule and material synthesis, 2) support for evaluating polymer materials, etc. by TEM, EDX, polymer measuring devices, and surface property measuring devices, and 3) support for producing a structure using FZ furnaces and thin film formation-support devices.
The university also sends specialists to visit more remote areas as a means of providing fair and equal nanotechnology support opportunities, thereby raising the level of nanotechnology in the entire region.
