About Lab.

Materials undergo the most dramatic change in structure and properties during the solidification phase. Our laboratory understands the structure and properties of liquid or supercooled liquid, controls the solidification of metal and glass materials, and develops materials with new functions and their manufacturing processes. In particular, we are interested in manufacturing high-performance steel materials through continuous casting and next-generation structural functional materials through metal 3D printing. We welcome students who are interested in research and development of materials with excellent physical properties through a new process.
