Materials Science and Engineering Laboratory

Exploring new hydrogen absorption/storage materials to achieve a society based on hydrogen energy and proposing eco-friendly lightweight composite materials

The manufacture of highly functional and eco-friendly materials is necessary for the sustainable development of a sophisticated society. Our laboratory researches a diverse array of fields—fuel cells and other hydrogen storage technologies to support societies based on hydrogen energy, the evaluation of properties of advanced materials used in hydrogen environments, the manufacture of highly functional and efficient composite carbon materials, and the creation of highly functional materials such as thin membranes.
