Research Outline

In this study, we aim to establish “the science of soft crystals” from the viewpoint of how nano-structural changes can occur by macroscopic, weak stimuli, and develop new functional materials based on their scientific insights. The important features are as follows: (1) development of preparation methods for metastable states in soft crystals by the use of macroscopic, weak stimuli, such as mechanical rotation (rotary evaporator or magnetic stirrer) or mechanical vibration (shaking apparatus), (2) development of new evaluation methods for the phase transition phenomena in soft crystals using super resolution fluorescence microscopy or infrared spectroscopy, (3) elucidation of the principle for the phase transition phenomena in soft crystals by applying plausible models, and (4) development of new functions based on soft crystals by hybridizing with soft materials. Thus, we will develop novel technologies for the preparation and evaluation of soft crystals, and obtain methodologies for their photofunctionalizations.
