Visit from Japan
Prof. Go Kawamura, Department of Electrical and Electronic Information Engineering, Toyohashi University of Technology, TUT, Japan, is currently academic visitor in the Institute of Biomaterials. This research program with TUT is funded by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS), and is named: Program for Advancing Strategic International Networks to Accelerate the Circulation of Talented Researchers, also aiming to build up and expand strong international collaborative research networks through the circulation of young researchers among research institutes in Germany, Japan, and USA. The objective of this part of the project is to develop artificial magnetic lattices (AML) with innovative features, such as controlling optical and electromagnetic waves by designing nanostructures. One focus of this particular interaction between TUC and our Institute led by Prof. Kawamura is the fabrication of such nanostructures by electrophoretic deposition. Prof. Kawamura is visiting us for 2 months and other visits of researchers in both directions are planned for 2018.
