In Washio's laboratory at Waseda University, highly advanced scientific research is carried out on the generation and applications of quantum beams such as electron beams, lasers, and ion beams, and new functional materials are synthesized using such beams, in cooperation with other partners.
As part of their activities, this research group is studying the nanoscale fabrication of fluorinated polymers in cooperation with the Handai Multi-Functional Nanofoundry of Osaka University, as part of the Open Advanced Facilities Initiative for Innovation (Nanotechnology Network) of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology.
In this report, we discuss our research on the direct microfabrication of fluorinated polymers using quantum beams such as synchrotron radiation and ion beams, performed in cooperation with Ritsumeikan and Osaka Universities, members of the Nanotechnology Network. We also report on the applications of the fluorinated polymers thus obtained.

For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the effective electrical charge of a single molecule in solution. This fundamental insight of an SNSF Professor could also pave the way for future medical diagnostics.
Electrical charge is one of the key properties that allows molecules to interact. Life itself depends on this phenomenon: many biological processes involve...
At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.
No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...
Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Tohoku University have developed high-quality GFO epitaxial films and systematically investigated their ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties. They also demonstrated the room-temperature magnetocapacitance effects of these GFO thin films.
Multiferroic materials show magnetically driven ferroelectricity. They are attracting increasing attention because of their fascinating properties such as...
