  3. Research and Education Center for Materials Science

Research and Education Center for Materials Science

The Center accommodates state-of-the-art research facilities, including a variety of instruments. The equipment is operated by expert technicians, allowing the characterization of new materials, evaluation of novel properties, and nano-fabrications. These technicians also contribute to the education, research and safety management of the GSMS. In addition to analysis and evaluation of new materials, we focus on design and synthesis of new functional materials which show promise in developing various areas of modern science and advanced technology, including nanotechnology, biotechnology, medicine, energy, environment and space science. Researchers outside of NAIST can also use our analytical facilities on a commission basis.
