More than 20 years ago we announced the concept of nanocomposites ahead of the world and succeeded in developing a wide range of new materials for ceramics, polymers and metallic nanocomposite materials. Professor Takashi Goto is an International Ceramic Federation (President) of the International Ceramics Federation and has many networks on ceramics in general. Also, most of the technical seeds can be relocated, and collaborative research is welcome if necessary. Please contact us if you need materials with new functions. Furthermore, technical consultation is possible regarding fracture mechanics consideration.
In particular, we are actively promoting joint research with those who are seeking the following technologies.
■ Persons who have consultation on general ceramic technology in general, especially synthesis of 2D and 3D structures (3D printer etc.)
■ Those who are looking for molding technology, especially inexpensive nano processing
■ Those who are looking for measurements of movement, light, electricity etc. in nanoseconds
■ Person who wants to control the internal structure of material
