Research and Development Center for Taste and Odor Sensing .
Academic Degree
Doctor of Philosophy in Engineering
Field of Specialization
Sensor Engineering
Outline Activities
・Development of the odor sensor using functional materials.
・Analysis for the surface of soft material like lipid/polymer membrane
・Development of instruments for above analysis
・Analysis both inorganic and organic
Research Interests
  • Development of spectroscopic instruments for surface analysis
    keyword : surface analysis, spectroscopy
  • Surface analysis of lipid/polymer membrane for taste sensor
    keyword : organic surface analysis lipid/polymer membrane
  • Research and development of odor sensor using functional materials
    keyword : odor sensor
  • 1. Development of the sensor for detection of low molecular compounds with high sensitivity using surface plasmon resonance (SPR) sensor and antigen-antibody immunoreaction. The sensor surface is made as polymer surface by surface initiated atom transfer radical polymerization(SI-ATRP).
    2. Analysis of the structure of lipid/polymer membrane, which is used for the taste sensor.
    keyword : surface plasmon resonance, surface initiated atom transfer radical polymerization, antigen-antibody immunoreaction, trinitrotoluene
