Abstract:
The latest issue includes ‘Research Highlights' — easy-to-understand summaries of some of the top papers from researchers at the university — as well as news and views from one of Japan's most dynamic science and technology based universities.

From graphene fabrication technology to harnessing microorgansisms in bioactuators and algorithms for Internet-based information analysis, the Toyohashi Tech e-Newsletter describes a diverse range of research projects

Toyohashi, Japan | Posted on August 17th, 2011

In this issue's Research Highlights

www.tut.ac.jp/english/newsletter/research_highlights/index.html:

Graphene: Patterning and doping

www.tut.ac.jp/english/newsletter/research_highlights/research04.html

Adarsh Sandhu and Ryousuke Ishikawa demonstrate new levels of control in graphene fabrication technology. They show how to position graphene nanoflakes at specific locations, as well as demonstrating a doping technique that improves the resistivity without compromising optical transparency.

Nanosynthesis: Growth of ~50 nm-diameter multi-walled carbon nanocoils

www.tut.ac.jp/english/newsletter/research_highlights/research02.html

A new procedure overcomes the large amorphous structures typical of previous carbon nanocoil synthesis methods. The thin structures can maximize potential applications as fillers, electromagnetic wave absorbers and tactile sensors.

Bioactuator:Vorticella actuation in microfluidic systems

www.tut.ac.jp/english/newsletter/research_highlights/research01.html

Researchers design a microfluidic device that can exploit the extension and contraction of the stalk on the microorganism Vorticella in response to the presence of Ca2+ ions. These bioactuators may find uses in micropositioners and microvalves.

Computer science: Powerful algorithm for segmented alignment of ontologies of arbitrary size

www.tut.ac.jp/english/newsletter/research_highlights/research03.html

Md. Hanif Seddiqui and Masaki Aono develop an algorithm that aligns similar but seemingly different ontologies — the structural frameworks for presenting knowledge. The algorithm may help mitigate problems of disorder associated with the rapidly increasing number of Internet-based ontologies.

In this issue's ‘Tech-Overtures' Toyohashi Tech inventors go the distance.

www.tut.ac.jp/english/newsletter/tech_overtures/index.html

Masahiro Hanazawa and Takashi Ohira devise a means of long-distance electrically powered transport. They propose the use of high-speed inverters implanted along tracks in the road to upconvert energy from power lines. Electric vehicles running on this upconverted energy can travel much longer distances than battery-powered transport allows.

Other features of the Toyohashi Tech e-Newsletter include:

New multipurpose ‘smart' robots designed for hospitals and care homes. "Instead of spending our funds on building complicated robots of limited use, we're developing much simpler power-assisted systems that can help the infirm move about comfortably and safely," Kazuhiko Terashima explains.www.tut.ac.jp/english/newsletter/features/index.html

News from the Japan Educational Seminar held in Indonesia. Toyohashi Tech faculty and staff promote opportunities at the university to potential students in Asia. www.tut.ac.jp/english/newsletter/news/index.html

Events and activities of the University such as:

A university exchange agreement with KTH in Sweden:www.tut.ac.jp/english/newsletter/news/index.html

Students and researchers having a blast with the Toyohashi wind orchestra:www.tut.ac.jp/english/newsletter/club_activities/index.html
