Keio University

Topic:
Motion sensors for sporting excellence: Lightweight smartphone sensors and Newton’s laws of motion can help athletes maximize their performance
Researcher:
Yuji Ohgi, Associate Professor, Graduate School of Media and Governance
Read from here:

“Newton’s laws cover all sporting activities. The mechanical properties can be formulated in almost the same way for people and horses. Once we understand the fundamental physics involved, we can comprehend the mechanics of any sport.”…

Kyoto University

Kyushu University

Topic:
Phase Stability and Electronic Structure of PdPt Nanoparticles
Researcher:
Michihisa Koyama, Professor, Takayoshi Ishimoto, Assistant Professor, Inamori Frontier Research Center/International Institute for Carbon-Neutral Energy Research
Read from here:

To understand the origin of the physicochemical nature of bimetallic PdPt nanoparticles, we theoretically investigated the phase stability and electronic structure employing the PdPt nanoparticles models consisting of 711 atoms (ca. 3 nm). For the Pd–Pt core–shell nan…

Ritsumeikan University

Sophia University

Topic:
Suppression of the antiferromagnetic pseudogap in the electron-doped high-temperature superconductor by protect annealing
Researcher:
Tadashi Adachi, Associate Professor, Department of Engineering and Applied Sciences, Faculty of Science and Technology
Read from here:

In the hole-doped cuprates, a small number of carriers suppresses antiferromagnetism and induces superconductivity. In the electron-doped cuprates, on the other hand, superconductivity appears only in a narrow window of high-doped Ce concentration after reduction anneali …

The University of Tokyo

University of Tsukuba

Topic:
Dying epithelial cells regulate immune system: Could help treating inflammatory diseases
Researcher:
Akira Shibuya, Professor, Department of Immunology, Faculty of Medicine, and Center for Tsukuba Advanced Research Alliance (TARA)
Read from here:

University of Tsukuba-based scientists show the importance of dying epithelial cells for controlling the size of a specific population of immune cells at barrier surfaces in the body; finding could lead to targeted therapy for a range of diseases …

Waseda University

Topic:
The complexities and intricacies of public opinion in Okinawa – Analyzing the past and the present
Researcher:
Hiroshi Komatsu, Assistant Professor, Faculty of Social Sciences
Read from here:

The Ginowan mayoral election and changes in post-war Okinawan politics The mayoral election in Ginowan, Okinawa Prefecture, took place on January 24, and Atsushi Sakima, the incumbent mayor running for a seco …
