Thin Film Materials
My Areas of Research
The fabrication of thin films with nanostructures that have new functions
My research involves using film formation methods such as reactive co-sputtering to create entirely new metals, ceramics, and composites thereof, and investigate their structures and properties. In particular, I vigorously strive to create thin films with previously unimaginable nanostructures, and to impart new functions to these thin films. Specifically, I research new hydrogen-permeable thin films, and window materials and eco materials that change in transparency when hydrogen-permeable thin films are used in them.
My Teaching Philosophy
My goal is to educate students so that their thoughts and results can be put into practice. Thus, I encourage students to undertake thorough efforts without providing overly detailed guidance, even if the process of facing these challenges may lead to some detours. I seek students with this kind of initiative.
