Development of thermoelectric conversion technology based on nanotechnology
Heat-transfer innovation by Materials Informatics (material science x information science)
Control of interfacial fluid dynamics phenomena such as wetting and phase change and its application to heat exchange
Most of the energy obtained from natural resources is not used and is exhausted as heat. To realize a sustainable society, development of technology to convert this exhaust heat to other energy forms (such as electricity) or to store and reuse it is important. Our group aims to make effective use of thermal energy by understanding, designing and manufacturing materials and devices from a multi-scale perspective from molecules to continuums, by combining theoretical calculation, material synthesis, physical-property measurements, and machine learning.
