Café on the Next Edge -- "Self-Assembly for Nano World Craftsmanship"

2011-11-4 (Fri) 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

As one outreach activity, the Funding Program for Next Generation World-Leading Researchers, "Green Innovation through Advanced Microdevices using Self-Assembled Oxide Nanowires," headed by YANAGIDA Takeshi, will hold Café on the Next Edge -- "Self-Assembly for Nano World Craftsmanship" on Friday, November 4.

Electronic parts keep getting smaller and smaller. The size of a part can now be smaller than the size of a molecule!

The 15th Science Café guest is YANAGIDA Takeshi, a researcher in the field of nanowires which play a role in wiring on the cutting edge of the downsizing of electronic parts and devices. Nanowires are fabricated by self assembly, a natural process that can be seen in the formation of solid crystals, for example, in the formation of snow flakes. Dr. Yanagida will speak about how snow flakes are related to nano-sized electronic parts.

Lecturer: YANAGIDA Takeshi, Associate professor, Institute of Scientific and Industrial Research, Osaka University, conducts research under the Funding Program for Next Generation World-Leading Researchers.

Facilitator: TAKAGI Akihiko, Specially Appointed Associate Professor, Immunology Frontier Research Center, Osaka University
