Nanotechnology - Propellant for Functional Material Development

We not only synthesize and design nano-scale materials, but also combine and organize them by making full use of research and technology in physical chemistry, reaction engineering, biochemistry and more in order to develop highly functional nanoscale devices. For example, we are working on silica (SiO2), which is one of the most common and inexpensive inorganic materials, for application on nano-scale devices. As said above, even ordinary every-day materials can be used for nanoscale device construction if we mobilize our full knowledge of chemical engineering.
