Global leaders in the two-dimensional
nanomaterial research

The Institute of Industrial Nanomaterials strongly encourages the development of functional nanomaterials based on two-dimensional (2D) nanomaterials, such as extremely thin nanosheets and surface/grain boundaries, as well as materials that are obtained in extreme process conditions, such as the ones prepared at Japan’s only explosion experiment facility and the world’s top-level pulsed power experiment facility, by applying new machine learning method. In recent years, 2D materials have attracted significant research attention worldwide. In other countries, nanosheets have been researched in detail and superior results have been obtained, which facilitated the establishment of new industries. Therefore, our institute was established as the global center for 2D nanomaterial research. The institute aims to present theoretical research and industrial development of 2D materials with canonical structure in extreme process conditions.
