This project is about the ultimate nanocarbons “exotic nanocarbons”, which are expected to make innovations possible in a wide number of fields ranging from the environment, energy, resources and ICT to biotechnology and medicine.
Four distinguished researchers with differing backgrounds in nanotechnology were invited to participate in this project and they, together with Shinshu University and participating companies, are conducting joint research on a wide range of topics with the goal of making various advanced innovations.
- Creation of exotic nanocarbons
- Analysis of the properties and structure of exotic nanocarbons
- Pioneering applications of exotic nanocarbons
Research and development on these three topics is being done by four teams led by M. Endo, P.M. Ajayan, M. Terrones and K. Kaneko utilizing the synergistic benefits of cooperation with researchers in industry.
