Research Center for Thermal and Entropic Science

In the Research Center for Thermal and Entropic Science, we focus on the synergy between molecular information and entropic aspect relating to molecular order in various phases, environments, and conditions, aiming to the firm foundation of hierarchical world model. Cooperations and collaborations are conducted, and of course welcome, with academic and industrial institutions, taking advantage of our own calorimetry techniques.
