Home > Press > Toyohashi University of Technology launches its ‘Toyohashi Tech e-Newsletter’ on October 25th

Abstract:
The Newsletter offers news and views from one of Japan's most dynamic science and technology based universities: Founded in 1976, Toyohashi University of Technology (Toyohashi Tech) is a vibrant modern institute with research activities reflecting the modern era of advanced electronics and engineering

Toyohashi University of Technology launches its ‘Toyohashi Tech e-Newsletter’ on October 25th

Toyohashi, Aichi, Japan | Posted on October 25th, 2010

This inaugural Toyohashi Tech e-Newsletter includes an interview with President Yoshiyuki Sakaki—internationally renowned molecular biologist who led Japan's International Human Genome Project—about his ambitious plans on enhancing the university's research and education infrastructure.

One of Sakaki's major initiatives has been the launch of the Electronics-Inspired Interdisciplinary Research Institute (EIIRIS)—Toyohashi Tech's new flagship research complex formally opened on 1st October 2010. "The aim of EIIRIS is to produce world-class innovative research," says Sakaki. "To do this we are bringing together ambitious young researchers from diverse fields to collaborate on pioneering new frontiers in science such as brain/neuro-electronics as well as tackling some of the major issues mankind faces today: issues such as environmental changes and aging societies."

In the ‘Research Highlights' section, the newsletter gives easy to understand description of recent research publications (www.tut.ac.jp/english/newsletter/research_highlights/index.html) including:

• Affective Haptics: Emotional real-time messaging
• Tamm states: Optical surface states in magnetophotonic crystals
• Toyohashi Probe: Silicon whiskers detect neural responses
• Neuroscience: Obedient sensory neurons
• Visual stimuli and cognitive processes: Oddball tasks and blue-colored humans
• Electronic nose: Odorant sensor fabricated from living cells
• Bio-nanomachines: Nano-size biological machinery for manipulating physiological function
• Biosensing and biomolecular recognition: Self Assembly and chains of rotating magnetic particles
• Cell repair mechanisms: Substrate-induced phase separation in ganglioside GM1-containing supported lipid bilayers

Toyohashi Tech inventions and inventors are under the spotlight in ‘Tech-Overtures', with a feature on the optical quantification of the spatial distribution of cosmetic facial foundation. For example, this technology enables a direct comparison of the finish of foundation applied by an untrained person and a professional make-up artist. This technology will be used for the development of materials for base make-up, more informed make-up counseling and techniques for beauticians and so on. www.tut.ac.jp/english/newsletter/tech_overtures/index.html

Other articles include news about the ‘Omotehama Blue Walk' along the 50 km long beach a stone's throw from the Toyohashi Campus, where students do their annual clean up to preserve this precious beach for migrating sea turtles to lay their eggs: www.tut.ac.jp/english/newsletter/news/index.html

In ‘Club Activities', members of the Robotics club describe the secrets of their success in winning the national robotics context: www.tut.ac.jp/english/newsletter/club_activities/index.html.

International students have their say in ‘Excursions' — a video story of their visit some of the famous sites and industries of Aichi prefecture on a trip organized by Toyohashi Tech: www.tut.ac.jp/english/newsletter/excursions/index.html
