AIMResearch brings the very best of AIMR research to a global audience of specialists and nonspecialists alike.
A drop of liquid can be rapidly encapsulated in a polymer by simply being dropped onto a flexible film floating on water
By introducing atom deficiency, ball milling boosts the conductivity of a lithium borane material by 1,000 times, significantly enhancing its performance as a solid electrolyte
Understanding the electronic properties of a family of oxides could lead to the fabrication of two-dimensional conductors by sandwiching insulators between thin metal layers
A generic, green route offers an easy way to make an extensive range of useful holey materials with tunable pore sizes
Observations of electron behavior when hydrogen atoms cram their way under graphene sheets could speed the development of fuel cells
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.
