This project aims to research advanced functional and environmentally conscious glass-ceramic materials.
They have attracted interest because of its excellent properties such as thermal resistance, chemical durability and mechanical strength, and high optical transmittance.
We are engaged in research and development of transparent optoelectronics materials with nano structures.
We especially focus on new eco-friendly method of preparing functional glass from mesoporous material consisted from nano particle and organic polymer. The excellent characters of the novel transparent materials would be conducive to its use for next generation optoelectronics and bio industry fields (e.g., optical sensor, light guide, optical lens, microchip display).
In addition, we propose a novel noncontact method for measuring the physical properties and structure of high-temperature glass melt. From the view point of environmentally conscious manufacturing, this method enables in situ monitoring of viscosity change in micro-liter order liquids.
