Our Research

Ito laboratory researches three dimensional (3D) graphene materials for physics and chemistry. Moreover, we use 3D carbon materials, metals, alloys etc to develop carbon neutral technology such as water splitting, electrochemical CO2 reduction and metal-air battery. We are looking forward to finding the frontier of science with you.

Join Us

We are looking for students and Postdoctoral researchers who are highly motivated for high level research and achievements. Moreover, we welcome an international exchange student for short-term. Please check the "Join Us" page and contact with Prof. Ito if you are interested in joining our laboratory.

Collaboration

We welcome your collaborations. Please contact with Prof. Ito for the possibility.
