Can we have a fire in a highly vacuumed environment?

Toyohashi University of Technology researchers have discovered that non-flaming combustion (smoldering) of a porous specimen can be sustained, even under nearly 1 percent of atmospheric pressure. The thermal structure of ...

Assembly of fluctuating molecules in artificial cell membrane

Lipids and membrane proteins existing in cell membranes, which are located at the outermost layer of cells, are responsible for recognizing extracellular environments and transferring that information inside the cell. Due ...

Oxide sintering by air pressure control

Professor Hiromi Nakano of the Toyohashi University of Technology has collaborated with a company to develop a small, lightweight air-pressure control atmosphere furnace that can rapidly and uniformly synthesize periodical ...

Strain directs spin waves

Chip development is complicated by the increasing temperatures in modern electronic devices based on semiconductor materials. Therefore, the development of spin wave integrated circuits (ICs) that can perform information ...

Scientists achieve high power with new smaller laser

An international team of scientists has produced the first high-powered, randomly polarised laser beam with a "Q switch" laser, which typically emits pulses of light so brief that they're measured in nanoseconds. Lasers are ...

Ultrastretchable and deformable bioprobes using Kirigami designs

A research team in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Information Engineering and the Electronics-Inspired Interdisciplinary Research Institute (EIIRIS) at Toyohashi University of Technology has developed an ultrastretchable ...
