第204回 アイセムスセミナー: Jiaxing Huang 教授
Curiosity is a fundamental driving force for scientific. I will discuss a few curiosity-driven discoveries inspired by non-scientific sources that have led to new hypotheses and solutions for solving material problems. For example, crumpled paper balls in a waste basket inspired a new form of graphene-based materials that can resistant aggregation and disperse in arbitrary solvents without the need for surface treatment, leading to their outstanding properties for energy storage and lubrication. And nanopatterns in Blu-ray movie discs have been found to be useful for improving the performance of solar cells through light trapping, and inspired a new way to design nanopatterns. On the other hand, curiosity-driven enquiry can also greatly enhance student learning experience. In one example, a question asked by students after class inspired their creation of sensors from ordinary office supplies.
