Constructing Platform for Super Smart Society in Near Future with Light-induced Acceleration of Biochemical Reaction
In this institute, we pioneer and promote a research development of "Light-induced Acceleration System (LAC-SYS)"
for a remote and non-destructive control of various kinds of vital phenomena,
by using a optical concentration based on the "optical force" and "Photo-thermal fluid flow".
Futhermore, we will provide an innovation in a wide range of applied fields such as
food inspection, clinical examination, pharmaceutical development, environmental technology, energy conversion technology, etc.,
through a collaboration with research institutes outside the university and enterprises.
These activities will contribute to the realization of the "Super smart society (Society 5.0)" of the science and technology plan of Japan.
Purpose of RILACS
1. Play a role of the world's first core research institute for the development of "Light-induced Acceleration System (LAC-SYS)".
2. Promote basic and applied research of LAC-SYS and contribute to the realization of Super smart society (Society 5.0).
3. Work with other research institutes and companies for collaborative research and fostering young researchers.
