Revolution in material development by additive manufacturing using electron beam melting
Professor, Deformation Processing,Institute of Materials Research,Tohoku University
Additive manufacturing technology that uses AM Machine to produce metal parts. It is expected to revolutionize parts for aircraft and rockets, which require strength and reliability. We asked Professor Akihiko Chiba of the Institute for Materials Research at Tohoku University, who is leading the way in metal additive manufacturing technology in Japan, about the potential of this technology.
Super High Precision Imaging, High Spatial and Energy Resolution Spectroscopy and In situ Electron Microscopy for Materials for Tomorrow and a Sustainable Future
Professor, Department of Physics, Chalmers University of Technology Chair of Research Division, Member of the Swedish Royal Academy of Sciences, General Secretary of International Federation of Societies for Microscopy (IFSM)
The research division of Eva Olsson focuses on understanding the correlation between local structure and properties of hard and soft matter and also their correlation to fabrication parameters.
Biological Electron Microscopy; Seeking Evermore Significant Data for New Discoveries in Biological Research
Professor at King’s College London, United Kingdom
Understanding cellular and molecular structures is a principal foundation of biomedical research. Professor Roland Fleck, who is the Director of CUI (Centre for Ultrastructural Imaging) at King’s College London, dedicates himself to high resolution imaging of their structures using JEOL electron microscopes. He uses both scanning and transmission electron microscopes, e.g., JSM-7800FPRIME, JEM-F200 well as other JEOL instruments in partnership with JEOL. The centre, which is a JEOL Centre for Advanced Technology (JCAT) specializes in both room temperature and cryo electron microscopy techniques.
Cryo-electron microscopy unveils the mysteries of life by investigating various molecular structures in the "deep freeze".
Professor at the Graduate School of Frontier Biosciences, Osaka University.
Proteins constitute all living organisms and are responsible for a plethora of functions, such as immunity, metabolism, cerebral function and motility. Professor Keiichi Namba, who leads the Protonic NanoMachine Group of the Graduate School of Frontier Biosciences in Osaka University is interested in the remarkable mechanisms underlying these functions and is actively seeking to unveil their secrets by studying the three-dimensional (3D) structures of biological molecules.
In Pursuit of Environmentally Friendly Chemistry: Innovations in Organic Synthesis Supported by Analytical Instruments
Professor, School of Science, The University of Tokyo
Advances in chemistry have led to tremendous benefits to society and have impacted nearly every aspect of our lives, including healthcare, energy, food production, and new materials. Although society has been enriched by this progress, the production of chemical substances has also created serious environmental issues, such as pollution and environmental contamination. At the University of Tokyo, Professor Shū Kobayashi is leading the way to develop environmentally friendly or “Green" chemistry.
