Research Areas

AIMR brings together leading researchers in the fields of substances, materials, and devices from around the world, and adds mathematicians in order to build a new form of materials science. Interface units make a bridge between them to promote fusion research.

Three Advanced Target Projects

The ultimate goal of AIMR is to create materials based on a complete understanding and control of atoms and molecules — the smallest units for materials. To reach this goal, AIMR launched three new Advanced Target Projects (ATPs) in 2019.


AIMR conduct various collaborative researches with institutes and companies.


AIMResearch is an online and print publication highlighting the scientific achievements and activities of top researchers at Tohoku University’s Advanced Institute for Materials Research (AIMR) established with the support of the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sport, Science and Technology (MEXT) to lead interdisciplinary research on new and innovative functional materials. AIMResearch highlights the most important findings from among the hundreds of research papers produced by AIMR researchers each year and in-depth spotlights on the AIMR’s activities and research groups.
