Research content

We have been interested in the chemistry at nanoscale. We have manipulated single molecules on surfaces with scanning probe microscope.
[For details, see our review paper: e-J. Surf. Sci. Nanotech. vol.12, pp.157-164 (2014). ]
Recently, we are interested in the manipulation using nanopipettes, which enable us to inject/extract molecules to/from living cells.
[For details, see our review paper: Nano Convergence, vol.1, p.17 (2014). ]
We are also interested in making novel nanoscale experiments possible.
So we sometimes make apparatus by ourselves.
We are waiting for newcomers to realize novel experiments and enjoy playing nanoscale chemistry with us.
We also have many collaborators not just in Japan but also in abroad.
So we are waiting for newcomers who like to speak nanoscale chemistry in English.
Please join us and enjoy nanochemistry.
