AIMResearch brings the very best of AIMR research to a global audience of specialists and nonspecialists alike.
An electrode with a special structure can be used to inject both electrons and holes into organic semiconductors
A specially designed liquid cell for an electron microscope enables lithium–oxygen batteries to be probed as never before
A new fabrication technique produces large areas of ultrathin films of a topological insulator on a variety of substrates
Scientists are closer to synthesizing artificial molecular machines in the lab with the production of virus-like polymer particles
An impressive nine hydrogen atoms can crowd around metal centers, forming compounds that are promising for storing hydrogen gas or fabricating battery components
The Advanced Institute for Materials Research (AIMR) was established in 2007, aiming to contribute to society through the creation of new and innovative materials by gathering researchers from around the world in the fields of materials science, physics, chemistry, and engineering - fields in which Tohoku University holds a leading position in the world in its research.
