Lab Open House

microE.pngAs a part of the Research Campus Open House, we show our lab activities by posters/demonstration on June 3 (Fri) - 4 (Sat). This year, we particularly feature on MEMS energy harvester devices for the coming Trillion-Sensor era, where more than a trillion sensors will be consumed a year. We show the recent results of the NEDO and CREST projects.

Welcome Remarks (English / Japanese / Top)


Research Field: Welcome to the Optical and RF-MEMS Lab with Prof. Hiroshi Toshiyoshi and Prof. Agnes Tixier-Mita. We are a research group within the Centre for Interdisciplinary Research on Micro-Nano Methods (CIRMM)*1 located at the Institute of Industrial Science (IIS)*2, The University of Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan. Our research interest is in the optical and RF-MEMS*3 application of MEMS technology.

Research Topics: You may find our research topics (accomplishment and on-going) at Research. Our lab life can be sampled at Lab Daily Life page. Click on the links on the left to find more about us, such as Members and Publication.

Student Admission: Our lab accommodates graduate school students (master and Ph.D course) within the EE (Electrical Engineering) course of the University of Tokyo. Entrance exam information and lab topics for candidate students are at research high-light.

International Activities: We operate the Core-to-Core Program (A. Advanced) entrusted by the JSPS*4 from April 2012 to March 2017 as a matching fund to the EU-FP7*5 (EUJO-LIMMS)*6 granted to the France-Japan collaboration lab LIMMS*7; in this program, young researchers higher than the master-course level are dispatched to our oversea collaborating labs for their international research training.

National Project: From March 2015, we operate a NEDO Leading Program on High Efficiency MEMS Vibrational Energy Harvesters for Trillion Sensors Society in collaboration with NMEMS Technological Research Organization. From December 2015, we also operate a CREST program (Scientific Innovation for Energy Harvesting Technology) of JST on "Electret MEMS Vibrational Triboelectric Generation."
