Chemistry at Interfaces

We are proud of our international-compatible studies of interfaces and photocatalysts. Liquid-solid interfaces characterization with frequency-modulation AFM is one of the coming research issues. The other topic is photoinduced dynamics of water-splitting photocatalysts studied by time-resolved infrared and Raman spectroscopy. We are pleased to collaborate with researchers and students in applied chemistry, physics, geoscience, materials and mechanical engineering. The annual tuition of students willing to join our PhD course can be supported by the laboratory. Foreign students to promise much here in Kobe are welcome. See For International Students.
