Mass Transfer Engineering

Overview

Polymer Processing: We have developed the computer simulation techniques for various kinds of processes encountered in the polymer processing. For example, the prediction techniques of materials behavior in twin screw extruders can evaluate the effects of screw configuration and other conditions on the mixing performance. Our goal is the establishment of process analysis system for the whole process from materials to final products.
Nanomaterial Engineering: Nanomaterial is expected as functional material for next generation optoelectronics and bio industry. We have developed new method of preparing the nano composite material consisted from inorganic nano particle and organic polymer. Our purpose of this project is to develop transparent optoelectronics materials with nano periodic structures, photo luminescence patterned and printable electronics glass.
Biochemical Engineering: The purpose of our project is to develop a culture system and a device for hybrid artificial organs or regenerative medicine using a scaffold with three-dimensional structure. We try to establish a differentiation culture system from stem cells into functional organ cells and to apply its technique to a device for hybrid artificial organs or regenerative medicine.
