Our Goal / Our Educational Intention

We learn natural philosophy through studying physical metallurgy.

Welcome to the website of the Metallurgical Alloy Design Laboratory.
This laboratory is devoted to develop novel light-weight structural metallic materials used for automobiles, rolling stocks, aircrafts, and so forth, where weight reduction is of importance. Our research interests include the development of new wrought Mg alloys with high strength, good ductility, and high corrosion-resistance, based on new multimodal microstructure design concept. We are currently engaged in the research and development of Mg alloys with a long period stacking ordered structure and mille-feuille structure.

Your suggestions for this site are welcomed.
