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. PhD students are financially supported by the laboratory and university, two million yen per year for three yeas at most. Foreign students to promise much here in Kobe are welcome. See Study in Japan.
