  • Photo-Degradable, Magnetic Origami Robots

    We have developed a remotely operable soft robot that can be disassembled upon exposure to light, utilizing silicone-based polymers and magnetic particles that can be decomposed. For detailed technology, please refer to ACS Appl. Mater. Interfaces 2024, 16, 10, 13139–13149.

  • Ecofriendly Transfer Printing for Biodegradable Electronics

    We have developed an eco-friendly transfer printing process for biodegradable electronic devices through joint research. The key to this research lies in the precise control of the density of adhesion-tunable self-assembled monolayers, allowing for the mass production of electronic devices on the same substrate without additional surface treatment after transfer printing. The researchers predict that the developed materials and device manufacturing process can serve as a starting point for a new mass production process for biodegradable electronic devices, leading to more eco-friendly manufacturing techniques.
