Theme2:Microstructure and mechanical property of metallic materials controlled by metallographic-structure and -phases


We are investigating metallic films with a nano-lamellar structure or porous metals. TEM observations and simulations by molecular dynamics and first-principles analysis are used to study the mechanism of metallic materials’ physical properties.
This investigation is being pursued in collaboration with Kyoto University (Mabuchi Lab.).

Theme3:Anisotropic structure and property in oriented bulk ceramics


In this work, as a first step toward application of the unique qualities of an electro-ceramic with an anisotropy structure, we prepared an oriented LNT balk ceramic by slip casting in a strong magnetic field of 12 T. The direction of the magnetic field was parallel to the casting direction. The obtained specimen was analyzed by X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscope, and transmission electron microscope. Consequently, the c-axis of the LNT powders was aligned parallel to the magnetic field and a high orientation degree was achieved in a strong magnetic field of 12 T.
