33Dielectric spectroscopy claries the cooperative rearrangement dynamics of H-bond liquids. My lab is focusing on microscopic frictional forces acting on the reorientational motion of water molecules.High-resolution small-angle X-ray scattering reveals the microscopic behavior of proteins to help us understand their biological functions.Fiber Materials EngineeringInterdisciplinary Chemical Physics exploring the microscopic mechanisms of life phenomenaDepartment of Chemistry and MaterialsWe are working on a wide range of soft condensed matters involving pure liquids, solutions, colloids, polymers, gels, and bio-macromolecules. Our special interests are in water and biomolecules because almost all life phenomena occur in an aqueous environment. With the help of spectroscopic and scattering techniques, we are seeking to understand the microscopic mechanisms supporting life phenomena. We also aim to contribute to the developments of pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and detergents.Takaaki SatoAssociate ProfessorAssociate Professor Sato graduated from Waseda University. He worked at Waseda University as a JSPS young research fellow (DC2 and PD) and as a senior assistant professor and then at Shinshu University as a tenure-track assistant professor before taking his current position in 2012.A recent social situation may emphasize the importance of practical research that can be instantly applied in society. Even so, we pursue fundamental research on soft condensed matters to gain deeper insights into structure and dynamics of diverse aqueous systems.Outlook for researchOur research topics and techniques produce students useful to a wide range of industries, such as cosmetic, detergent, and food. More importantly, our target is to develop human resources having a high level of problem-solving abilities, penetrating insights, and international communication skills.Outlook for students after graduationFiber Materials EngineeringMaking fuel cells a more familiar energy systemDepartment of Chemistry and MaterialsI am developing two types of fuel cells that do not use platinum, which is expensive, as a catalyst. One is a solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) that operates at high temperatures. The other is polymer electrolyte fuel cell (PEFC) that uses a non-platinum catalyst, specifically silk-derived activated carbon. Reaction activity and transport phenomena for gas, ions, and electrons in the electrodes are important in both cases, and I am working to develop new materials and to optimize the electrode structure.Hiroshi FukunagaAssociate ProfessorAssociate Professor Fukunaga took his current position in 2009 after serving in the Faculty of Textile Science and Technology at Shinshu University as an assistant professor. His principal areas of research include chemical engineering and electrochemistry as regards solid oxide and polymer electrolyte fuel cells.Fuel cells are a dream technology that can extract energy eciently. A growingarray of applications use fuel cells in large-scale power plants, in residential and automotive power systems, and as a power source for portable devices and articial organs.Outlook for researchChemical engineering can be put to use in a wide range of domains, including chemicals, electricity and electronics, automobiles, and energy.Outlook for students after graduationA power-generating device that uses a solid oxide fuel cellAn electrode for a solid polymer fuel cell that my lab created信州大学HOME大学施設について 交通・キャンパス案内 願書・資料請求 ME繊維学部について学部案内大学院教育研究プロジェクト・プログラム産学官連携入試情報受験生の方へ企業・団体の方へ一般の方へ卒業生の方へ在学生の方へ教員氏名職名所属研究分野SOAR福長 博准教授材料化学工学課程反応工学・プロセスシステム電気化学研究者総覧(SOAR)を見るホーム 繊維学部について 教員紹介 福長 博一言コメント高価な貴金属を使わない燃料電池の電極について、構造を最適化することで効率を高めるための研究を行っています。燃料電池の材料と化学と工学繊維学部について学部長挨拶理念と目標系・課程・専攻の構成教員紹介キャンパス内施設・組織沿革キャンパスマップお問い合わせ リンク サイトマップ 反応工学・プロセスシステム、電気化学を研究しています研究紹介
