About IME

 Division of Integrated Material Engineering (IME) at Chemical Resources Laboratory (CRL) (an institution for Nano-Micro Materials Devices and System Design Alliance, MEXT, JPN) has been founded on 2006 after the completing the Division of Photofunctional Materials at CRL. Our research destinations are (1) system integration of hierarchical self-organization from molecular units and (2) material and molecular engineering to extend and utilize nanotechnology in order to create new functions and properties of materials.
 IME is new research field to unify Material Science and Engineering from searching new materials and new functions to realization of molecular system and devices. We treat polymer, metals, semiconductor, metal complex, etc and towards "template materials engineering", "photoenergy conversion materials", and "molecular devices engineering".
