In the labs, there is equipment for materials processing, pyrolysis reactor/condenser, reducing furnace with H2/N2 gas, catalyst preparation facilities, high speed device (1GHz) electrical measurements, tanks for cultivating shellfish, bacteria fermentation, ferroelectric test equipment, three workstations, and an Olympus confocal laser scanning microscope with 3D imaging and light irradiation (solar) energy scavning system. Equipment in other professors labs can also be used with permission. Students have access to various simulation software via computer center and institute supercomputer. Materials characterization equipment such as Raman, FTIR, SEM, XRD, TEM, XPS, NMR, and BET are also available in the campus analysis center (info in Japanese). Most the center's equipment can be operated by students after receiving instructions.
