RIKEN and JASRI unveil “SACLA”, Japan’s first X-ray Free Electron Laser (XFEL)


RIKEN and the Japan Synchrotron Radiation Research Institute (JASRI) have cut the ribbon on a new cutting-edge X-ray Free Electron Laser (XFEL) facility in Harima, the first such facility in Japan and only the second in the whole world. Nicknamed “SACLA” (SPring-8 Angstrom Compact Free Electron ...


Study uncovers redox response properties of largest-ever polymeric o-phenylenes


New findings by researchers at RIKEN and the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) have shed light on the remarkable electrochemical response properties of an elusive class of molecular helix structures, charting a new path in the design of molecular machines and devices. Among the most ...


New photosensitive film converts light into kinetic energy, bends when irradiated


Researchers at RIKEN have successfully developed a revolutionary new polymer film that changes shape upon irradiation with UV and visible light. Described in Science, the film is the largest-ever example of a material whose molecular elements are ordered in three dimensions on a macroscopic ...


Self-Assembling Devices: Design and synthesis of organic devices


Organic devices have greatly benefited from the remarkable advances in synthetic organic chemistry that have allowed for the synthesis of a wide variety of pi-conjugated molecules with attractive electronic functions. In Chemistry—An Asian Journal, Wei-Shi Li, Takanori Fukushima, Takuzo Aida, and ...


Scientists discover 45 new radioisotopes in 4 days


The world’s most powerful beam of heavy ions has enabled Japanese scientists and their international collaborators to uncover 45 new neutron-rich radioisotopes in a region of the nuclear chart never before explored. In only four days, a team of researchers at the RIKEN Nishina Center for ...


New mechanism for superconductivity discovered in iron-based superconductors


A research team at RIKEN, Japan’s flagship research organisation has experimentally determined the mechanism underlying the formation of electron pairs in iron-based high-temperature superconductors. The finding, reported in Science, establishes a key role for magnetism in superconductivity. In ...


How to split a water molecule


A research team at RIKEN has succeeded for the first time in selectively controlling for reaction products in the dissociation of a single water molecule on an ultrathin film. The reaction, described in Nature Materials, opens the door to the creation of novel functional catalysts and ...


Electroluminescence devices


A highly efficient, low driving-voltage, phosphorescent material for electroluminescence devices has been developed by scientists in Asia. Zhaomin Hou from RIKEN Advanced Science Institute, Japan and colleagues from Jilin University, China, have synthesised an iridium complex with highly ...


UIC and Japanese chemists close in on molecular switch


The electronics industry believes that when it comes to circuits, smaller is better -- and many foresee a future where electrical switches and circuits will be as tiny as single molecules. Turning this dream into reality may be a step closer, thanks to a collaboration between chemists at the ...
