Message from team leader to viewer.
|Belonging||Distinguished Professor, Research Center for Exotic Nanocarbons, Shinshu university|
Scientific research is about making dreams. Scientific dreams can stimulate human activities, creating further progress. We scientists must continue working to create new science, but work alone cannot necessarily assure scientific progress. We need to face the challenges to create new concepts in science, even if it is not easy. The great pleasure in science is not in routine studies, but in challenging studies.
Our Research Group consists of distinguished professor Katsumi KANEKO, professors and researchers.
Katsumi Kaneko was a professor at Chiba University until March, 2010. He performed research on the characterization and structural analysis of confined nanospaces and nanoporous materials. From April 2010 he has been a distinguished professor at Shinshu University working with the JST J-RISE project on Exotic Nanocarbons.
