Startled Computers: Space makes semiconductors surprised

In Sci-Fi movies, androids are often depicted as having cold and emotionless character. We may have such impression because most of computers rely on digital processing in which everything is flatly divided into "1" or "0", but—would you believe it?—they are easily surprised and often get upset. It is caused by a strike of tiny invisible particles, fragments of exploding stars a.k.a cosmic rays, but the shock is significant. The shock makes a computer chip surprised and lose its memory, control, and even its fundamental ability to boot up. So, what will you do next?

These integrated material platforms would pave new ways to fundamental technologies for ultra-low power-consumption electronics and fault-tolerant quantum information.

Soft/flexible devices for medical applications

We engage in research on flexible devices for application to living body, taking advantage of qualities unique to organic materials. We have proposed pressure sensors that do not interfere with skin sensation, breathable electrodes that do not cause skin irritations, and nanomesh sensors with cellular level softness for next-generation biointerfaces with high biological conformity.

Ultrathin film electronics for healthcare and medical applications

We aim to develop electronically functionalized 'ultra-thin film electronics' by implementing and printing electrodes, wiring, antennas, etc., on polymeric ultra-thin films with a thickness ranging from several hundred nanometers to a few micrometers. This technology is intended for applications in the healthcare, medical, and sports fields, with the goal of creating devices that can be adhered to soft biological tissues such as the skin and organs, functioning like a sticker.
