Highlighted research outputs from our collaboration with Toyohashi University of Technology

The research collaboration between the Toyohashi University of Technology (TUT) and our Institute led by Associate Professor Go Kawamura has resulted in important developments in the field of multiferroic materials, which were recently published in the Journal of Materials Chemistry C [1]. An advanced liquid process for fabrication of affordable multiferroic nanocomposite films was developed at TUT in collaboration with Japan Fine Ceramics Center, National Institute of Technology Ibaraki College, International Iberian nanotechnology Laboratory, Chang’an university and our Institute. The multiferroic material exhibits novel electric and the magnetic properties, which may open applications such as low-power-consumption large-volume memory, spatial light modulator, and sensors among others. Prof. Go Kawamura, Department of Electrical and Electronic Information Engineering,(Matsuda-Muto-Kawamura lab), TUT, was an academic visitor in our Institute during different periods in the last 3 years, funded by the Program for Fostering Globally Talented Researchers (R2802), JSPS.
