Researchers develop blue-fluorescent molecular nanocapsules

Michito Yoshizawa, Zhiou Li, and collaborators at Tokyo Institute of Technology synthesized ~1 nanometer-sized molecular capsules with an isolated cavity using green and inexpensive zinc and copper ions. In sharp contrast ...

Tokyo Tech's six-legged robots get closer to nature

A study led by researchers at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) has uncovered new ways of driving multi-legged robots by means of a two-level controller. The proposed controller uses a network of so-called non-linear ...

New insights into early terrestrial planet formation

Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology have demonstrated that the relatively high levels of precious metals (gold, platinum, etc.) in the Earth's mantle likely originated from one large-scale planetary impact prior to ...

Performance and durability combine in liquid crystal transistors

Crystalline organic semiconductors have attracted a lot of interest for convenient low-cost fabrication by printed electronics. However progress has been stymied by the low thermal durability and reproducibility of these ...
