Preface

Masakazu Aono MANA Director-General NIMS MANA was founded in October 2007 with the support of the World Premier International Research Center Initiative (WPI Program) of Japan’s Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT). The WPI program aims “to build globally visible research centers that boast a very high research standard and outstanding research environment, sufficiently attractive to prompt frontline researchers from around the world to want to work in them.” MANA has made considerable progress toward achieving this aim during the first five-year period of the WPI Program (2007-2011). This is made clear by the high praise MANA received in the WPI Program Committee’s interim evaluation in 2011. However, we, the scientists of MANA, are not satisfied with this accomplishment. We want to tackle even more challenging research during the next five years. The future th challenges of MANA were discussed at MANA’s 5 Anniversary Memorial Symposium held in the new WPI-MANA Building in October 2012. For our readers’ convenience, the MANA Progress Report consists of two booklets named “Facts and Achievement 2012” and “Research Digest 2012”. This booklet, which is the part “Facts and Achievements 2012”, serves as a summary to highlight the progress of the MANA project in 2012. The other booklet “Research Digest 2012” contains an overview of MANA research activities in the calendar year 2012. Lastly, on behalf of MANA, I would like to ask you for your continued understanding and support to MANA.

1. WPI Project Progress Report In June 2012, MANA submitted a WPI Project Progress Report for Fiscal Year 2011 to the WPI Program Committee. The full report is published on the website of Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) (see www.jsps.go.jp/ english/e-toplevel/). The first page of the report “Summary of State of WPI Center Progress” is shown below. Host Institution: Host Institution Head: Research Center: Center Director:

National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS) Sukekatsu Ushioda International Center for materials Nanoarchitectonics (MANA) Masakazu Aono

Summary of State of WPI Center Progress (MANA): Research of the world’s highest level:

The following selection from among our research accomplishments represents the vanguard of nanotechnology and materials science: A) Revolutionary nanomaterials created by “nanosheet technology”, B) Novel “low-dimensional” superconductors, C) Nano-power generation/conversion/storage nanomaterials and systems, D) Boron nitride (BN) “white” nanotubes and nanosheets, E) Revolutionary nanodevices, F) Novel nanoscale characterization/analysis methods, G) Nanolife related materials research, H) Theoretical nanoscience. Although the research at MANA is conducted in the four research fields of Nano-Materials, Nano-System, Nano-Green and Nano-Bio, most of the foregoing research results from collaborative studies in two or three different research fields.

Fusion of various research fields:

In order to promote research fusion at MANA, we have set up funding programs such as our Grand Challenge Research Program and Inter-field Projects. The latter specifically aims to enhance the interaction between nano-bio and other fields, and theory and experimentation. MANA researchers are involved in eight of the 11 NIMS Inter Unit Seeds Development Research Grants of Fiscal Year 2011. To bring together researchers from different fields, MANA holds frequent seminars and a Grand Challenge Meeting once or twice a year. These meetings have proven to be highly beneficial in the fusion of various fields and in motivating young researchers to tackle new challenges.

Globalization:

The Center employs 206 researchers, of which 116 or 56% are foreign nationals. Despite the Great East Japan Earthquake and subsequent nuclear power plant incident,

4

the percentage of foreign researchers has not changed. To strengthen Nano-bio programs, Prof. Francoise Winnik of the University of Montreal was appointed a Principal Investigator in April 2011. To promote the unique concept of nanoarchitectonics and raise MANA's profile, two special issues on MANA were published in Advanced Materials and Science and Technology of Advanced Materials, and MANA began announcing its research worldwide with the launch of its English newsletter the MANA Research Highlight.

Organizational reforms:

MANA’s role in promoting some of the NIMS system reforms is clearly positioned in NIMS’ third five-year plan. The item “building international networks and bases for international research” states that MANA’s “experience in developing an international research environment and recruiting and training young researchers will be reflected in NIMS’ internationalization efforts made as a whole.”

The center’s future development over the mid- to long term:

MANA was formally incorporated into one of the three priority R&D fields within NIMS’ third five-year plan, and has become one of NIMS' research divisions. When the next five-year plan commences, MANA will continue to function as a core research division in charge of one of NIMS’ strategic research fields and maintain the overall 200-strong body of researchers including between 80 and 90 of MANA's PIs, MANA Scientists and Independent Scientists. After the WPI funding period ends, MANA will receive operations subsidies from NIMS and its researchers will seek out external funding in order to maintain the Center's size and level of research activity.

2. WPI Program and MANA The content of Section 2.1 is mainly based on information published on the website of Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) in March 2013 (see www.jsps.go.jp/english/e-toplevel/).

2.1 World Premier International Research Center Initiative (WPI) The World Premier International Research Center Initiative (WPI) was launched in 2007 by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) in a drive to build within Japan “globally visible” research centers that boast a very high research standard and outstanding research environment, sufficiently attractive to prompt frontline researchers from around the world to want to work in them. These centers are given a high degree of autonomy, allowing them to virtually revolutionize conventional modes of research operation and administration in Japan. Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) is commissioned by MEXT to conduct the program’s grant selection and project assessment processes and to perform other administrative functions. l Outline of WPI Program Competition for securing the world’s finest brains has intensified over recent years. So that Japan may take a world lead by virtue of its strength in science and technology amidst this demanding environment, it needs to place itself within the global flow of outstanding human resources while creating open research platforms that attract such people from around the globe. Given this perception, the World Premier International Research Center Initiative (WPI) provides concentrated support for projects implemented by Japanese universities and research institutes aimed at building top world-level research centers staffed by the highest caliber of core researchers. By achieving a very high research standard and providing an excellent research environment, these centers should possess a level of "global visibility" that attracts top researchers from around the world. They are given a high degree of autonomy, allowing them to virtually revolutionize conventional modes of research operation and administration in Japan. Table 2-1: Content of WPI Program.

Facts and Achievements 2012

In 2011, the five WPI centers that were launched in October 2007 underwent an interim evaluation by the WPI program committee. MANA received a high score "A" and has entered the second term of operation in April 2012. The MANA Second-term Kickoff Meeting was held on May 7, 2012 (see Fig. 2-2). MANA Director-General Masakazu Aono gave a talk to all MANA staff in the auditorium of the new WPI-MANA Building. He presented the history of MANA over the past 5 years. Then he emphasized the importance of promoting research in the four research fields of MANA based on the concept of “Materials Nanoarchitectonics” and explained the outline of MANA’s activities for the next 5 years. Fig. 2-2: Participants of the MANA Secondterm Kickoff Meeting in the auditorium of the new WPI-MANA Building.

2.2 Mission and Research Target of MANA

l What is MANA? Materials nanoarchitectonics is a new research paradigm of materials development, which attempts to extract and use the ultimate functions of materials based on a profound understanding of the mutual interaction between individual nanostructures and arbitrary arrangement of those nanostructures. l Vision of MANA Oriented towards a better global future: Pioneering a new paradigm for nanotechnology in materials development. l Mission of MANA To achieve the goals of the WPI program, MANA aims to develop innovative materials by using nano-technology as a fundamental research center, especially for next-generation nano-science and technology. Its mission is summarized in the following four points: ● Challenge the development of ground-breaking new materials on the basis of materials nanoarchitectonics. ● Creating a “melting pot” where top-level researchers gather from around the world. ● Fostering and securing young scientists who have courage to battle with challenging research. ● Construction of a network of nanotechnology centers throughout the world. l Research Target of MANA When MANA was established in October 2007, a research organization was formed tailored to the five key technologies: “Controlled Self-Organization”, “Chemical Nanomanipulation”, “Field-induced Materials Control”, “Atom/Molecule Novel Manipulation” and “Theoretical Modeling and Designing”. The organization was reformed in October 2008 into four research fields: Nano-Materials, Nano-System, Nano-Green and Nano-Bio to make the research at MANA more explicit and clarify its missions. The five key technologies of nanoarchitectonics were converged into these four fields to promote fundamental studies on nanomaterials and nanosystem and clarify the direction of applications in environmental and life sciences, which will lead to new innovations. In October 2012, the Nano-Green Field was renamed to Nano-Power Field, and the NanoBio Field to Nano-Life Field. The research directions of MANA (as of October 1, 2012) are shown in Fig. 2-3. Research objectives four each field are as follows. MANA aims to become a unique hub of materials nano-science and nano-technology. Fig. 2-3: Research Directions of MANA (as of October 1, 2012).

Nano-Materials Field Designing Nanoscale Materials With New Properties and Unprecedented Functions MANA is promoting research that explores new properties and functions intricately linked to nanoscale size and shape. This exploration covers a wide range of inorganic, metallic, and organic materials. Many new nanoscale materials are being created by utilizing unique synthetic techniques, involving soft-chemical, colloid chemical and supramolecular processes. The creation of nanoscale materials and the exploration of their applications have almost unlimited potential. Based on the concept of nanoarchitectonics, MANA is developing novel synthesis techniques to bring forth new materials and new processes that will spur innovation across a range of sectors including electronics, environment protection, and energy technology (see Fig. 2-4). ● Developing functional nanosheet ● Creating functional nanotubes and films nanowires

● Measuring nanoscale material properties

Nano-System Field Revolutionary Functionality Realized Through Mutual Interactions of Nanoscale Functional Units Our research activities encompass not only the discovery and exploration of nanoscale materials with a hitherto unknown functions, research also extends to the development of revolutionary functions that are created through mutual interactions of such nanoscale units. For this purpose, researchers investigate how nanoscale structures can produce novel linked functionalities on the basis of materials nanoarchitectonics. In the long run, such nano-systems have tremendous promise for various fields, but our research is focused on innovation in three areas, namely advanced information processing and communications, advanced environment sensing, and effective solar light application. The development of new nano-system evaluation methods and the new concepts of theoretical science also are important aspects that guide our work (see Fig. 2-5). ● Developing new nano-system evaluation methods

Nano-Power Field Effective Conversion of Materials and Energy is Crucial to the Realization of a Sustainable Society The biggest challenge facing humanity today is the move away from our dependence on energy that is derived from fossil fuels. Renewable energy is the key if we want to realize a sustainable society. Consequently, natural energy sources with the sun as the prime source must be converted with high efficiency into electricity and fuel. When storing, transporting, and retrieving energy through means such as secondary batteries and fuel cells, efficient transport of ions and electrons are required and controlled arrangement of atoms and molecules at interfaces is essential. The NanoPower Field employs the concepts of surface nanoarchitectonics to directly control the nano structure on the atomic and molecular level. The research aims at illuminating and exploring methods and processes for interconversion between energy and matter with high efficiency (see Fig. 2-6). ● Capturing the energy of the sun

Nano-Life Field Innovative Medical Approaches May Draw on Nanoscale Biomaterial In the Nano-Life Field, enhancing the natural regenerative power of the human body is an important concept for treating diseases. The aim is to create materials suitable for “materials therapy”, i.e. materials that sustainably elicit a regenerative and curative effect from the living tissue. Such materials designed and produced with nanoarchitectonics methods are expected to have an effectiveness that is comparable to conventional medicines. Drawing on the results of past research as inspiration, MANA is intensively working towards the development of such new nano-bio materials (see Fig. 2-7). ● Artificial bone made of oriented open- ● Drug delivery system/smart pore apatite biomaterial research

3.2 Management l Allocation of authority between NIMS and MANA The NIMS president, as the responsible person of the host institute, supports the operation of the MANA center to the fullest extent, while respecting the authority of the MANA Director-General the operation of MANA. However, upon some situations such as receipt of any advice from the Steering Committee and NIMS Executive Board, the NIMS president reserves the right to take various additional measures necessary for the center operation including, for example, improvement of the experimental space and additional assignment of permanent NIMS researchers. The Director-General of MANA has authority over the center’s operation in general. He possesses the authority to allocate Center resources such as budget funds and space. This includes employment and renewal of contracts for researchers and administrative staff members of the MANA center, except for those who are enrolled in the main body of NIMS. l Decision-making system The center, as its basic principle, intends to establish a decision-making system that can support strong leadership of the center director. In addition, the center intends to minimize the number of meetings in its operation so that the researchers can devote themselves to their studies. A principal investigators meeting led by the center director is held on a regular basis (about once every month). Matters concerning center operation in general are discussed and reported under the full leadership of the center director. Also, the principal investigators must clearly communicate the intentions of the center director to all the young researchers and graduate students. On October 1, 2008, a Chief Operating Officer was assigned to work under the Director-General in order to reduce the burden on the Director-General and to allow for more efficient and speedier Center management. The Administrative Director oversees administrative duties, while the Chief Operating Officer supervises research. In light of the Center's administrative issues, the MANA Executive Meeting was put in place to allow the Director-General, Chief Operating Officer and Administrative Director to confer at any time to make snap decisions on Center management. There are currently five external stakeholders, including Nobel Prize winners and prominent researchers, serving as MANA Advisors (see Appendix 8.3). They provide advice on overall Center management and invaluable suggestions on individual research projects, as well as cooperate with our outreach activities by serving as lecturers in science seminars geared toward elementary and junior high school students. Appendix 8.3: MANA Advisors l MANA Administration Starting in 2003, NIMS has about five years of experience in research, using English as the official language of ICYS activities. Therefore, it has the advantage of being able to perform both efficient and international administrative operation by making the best use of its experience and know-how acquired in ICYS. All the documents regarding, for example, office routine regulations, purchase of items, and official trips are today already available both in Japanese and English. As a result, an environment of supporting documentation is close to perfection so that foreigner researchers can devote themselves to their study without a language barrier. Based on the experience in ICYS, MANA has established three teams, Planning Team, General Affairs Team, Technical Support Team in October 2008 and added an Outreach Team in April 2010. All staff of the MANA Administration is fluent in English.

3.3 Committee Evaluation l WPI Program Committee One Program Director (PD) and nine Program Officers (PO), one for each WPI center, have been assigned by JSPS to conduct the follow-up activities. With the assigned PO as its chair, a working group for each WPI center has been established under the Program Committee. Each group comprises about 5-6 specialists in the subject field. As a rule, about half of them are overseas members. Program Director (PD), Program Officer (PO) and Working Group members for MANA in Fiscal Year 2012 are listed in Table 3-2.

4. Attractive International Research Environment MANA is one of the most internationalized research centers in Japan. MANA is firmly advancing the development of an outstanding international research environment in an effort to create a “highly visible research center”.

4.1 Fostering Young Scientists l Melting Pot When people from diverse backgrounds and with different opinions and view points are able to freely meet and interact, an environment highly conductive to innovation is created. MANA sees itself as a melting pot that offers researchers from a wide range of fields and with diverse cultural and national backgrounds the opportunity to work in such a cosmopolitan environment (see Fig. 4-1). Whether in the lab, in the cafeteria, or during events and other activities, there are always opportunities for communication and interaction. We believe that comprehensive research that spans diverse fields will prove beneficial for many positive future developments. With a view to further enhancing the cosmopolitan atmosphere at MANA, we actively encourage the participation of scientists from around the globe. Currently, more than half of our researchers come from countries other than Japan. As part of the Melting Pot activity, researchers from MANA are requested to present their research field at the MANA Seminars. When renowned researchers visit MANA, they held seminars to introduce their research projects to stimulate MANA researchers and promote interdisciplinary synergies. In 2012, MANA seminars were conducted with 31 speakers from NIMS and 58 invited renowned researchers from around Japan and the world (total 89 speakers). Appendix 8.5: MANA Seminars

Fig. 4-1: Left: “Melting-Pot” Environment at MANA. Middle: Young researchers with different nationalities and different research fields gather at the MANA café. Right: MANA’s unique 3D system. l 3D System The Triple Double (3D) System at MANA (see Fig. 4-1) is a unique system for cultivating the potential of Young Researchers. “3D” stands for Double-Mentor, Double Discipline and Double Affiliation. The objective is to cultivate independence in research allowing these scientists to obtain advice from two or more mentors, enhance interdisciplinary ability by requiring the study of two or more themes, and strengthen the spirit of independence by having them working at two or more organizations. This system imbues Satellite Research Centers and affiliated overseas institutions with even greater significance than before. Through the experience of joint research with overseas mentors, young researchers can improve themselves, and by successfully integrating different disciplines, they can open up new possibilities within their own fields. The 3D system is receiving ongoing praise from Japan and overseas as an effective system for boosting the careers of young researchers. l ICYS-MANA With the aim of building an international research environment for young researchers and creating a unique system to guide them, the International Center for Young Scientists (ICYS) was set up by the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) in 2003 through the Special Coordination Funds for promoting Science and Technology and the Program for Encouraging the Development of Strategic Research Centers. The mission of ICYS was to gather excellent young researchers from different countries and specializations to a place where they can conduct research autonomously in a melting pot environment where they can stimulate one another and elicit as much of their youthful creativity as possible. This ICYS program received high marks and even after the conclusion of the program in 2007, the princi14

ple and system of ICYS continued as the NIMS International Center for Young Scientists, which is divided into ICYSSengen and ICYS-Namiki (named for their locations). Researchers posted at ICYS-Namiki take part in MANA projects as ICYS-MANA researchers. ICYS-MANA researchers are selected from around the world through open recruitment.

4.2 Throughout Support for Non-Japanese Researchers With over half of the researchers working at and visiting MANA coming from outside Japan, MANA provides all manner of support to enable them to conduct their research activities without any barriers. Basically, within MANA, information flows in both languages, Japanese and English. This covers seminar information or advice found when riding the elevator, on up to very detailed things. Efforts to use English as a common language have become firmly rooted and correspondence courses, which include screening, as well as overseas language training, have been implemented for the entire administrative staff. With public housing facilities nearby for non-Japanese MANA researchers, they can experience an ideal environment for doing research during their stay. Researchers and accompanying families receive assistance in matters such as finding hospitals, child care facilities, schools, residences, and other necessary information through the support system of NIMS. For researchers from abroad, there is a guidebook in both English and Japanese that covers the necessary items for working at NIMS, including useful information about coming to Japan, starting work at NIMS, conducting research, and leaving NIMS. The guidebook is revised about once a year. A laboratory tour, newcomers are required to join, is held every month using the guidebook. NIMS also offers regular Japanese culture classes (see Fig. 4-2, Table 4-1) and Japanese language classes for foreign researchers to foster an understanding of the host country. In 2012, 149 participants joined the Culture Classes and 59 participants attended the Language Classes. Table 4-1: Schedule of Japanese Culture Classes in 2012. 1

4.3 Research Support and Access to Cutting-Edge Research Facilities It is the research support that is the pride of MANA. The clean room facility in the MANA Foundry (see Fig. 4-3) is equipped with over 30 facilities for nano-fabrication and characterization to support research of nanoarchitectonics. The MANA Foundry consists of six areas in its 235 m2 floor space: Lithography Area, Dry Process Area, Nano Fabrication Area, Nano Structure Processing Area, Nano Measurement Area and Thermal Treatment Area. We are able to provide consistent process from test piece preparation to structural observation and functional verification including nano-gap electrode pattering by electric beam lithography on complicated structures such as nano dots, nano wires and nano sheets made of various materials like organic, inorganic, metal, insulator, superconductor and composite. Experienced technical and administrative staff, fluent in English, assist foreign researchers. The MANA Technical Support Staff (TSS) Team has 5 technicians that can speak English, and a variety of support is provided (see Fig. 4-3) to allow researchers to focus on their research, such as equipment maintenance, laboratory cleaning, reagent support, safety measures, and technical studies, transport. and installation when purchasing equipment. In addition, MANA researchers have full access to the world’s most advances, medium- and large-scale user facilities at the host institute NIMS such as high field magnets, a dedicated beamline at Japan's SPring-8 synchrotron facility, high-voltage und ultrahigh vacuum electron microscopes, a belt-type high pressure apparatus, high energy X-ray photoemission spectroscopy and high precision powder X-ray diffractometers.

4.4 The new NanoGREEN/WPI-MANA Building Next to the MANA Building (13,000 m2, 5-story) at NIMS Namiki site, construction work of a new multidisciplinary research complex was completed in March 2012 (see Fig. 4-4). The complex consists of two units - the NanoGREEN Building and the WPI-MANA Building (6,000 m2, 5-story) – with the area between the two buildings serving as a free space where researchers can meet and discuss their work. The complex is a facility for world-class research on environmental and energy materials and nanotechnologies that brings together NIMS and outside researchers and private-sector engineers from Japan and abroad. It is designed to conserve energy and reduce CO2 emissions – aspirations that are highly pertinent in today’s “Culture of the Environment” – and to provide safety and security should disaster occur. The entire building represents a “melting pot” that fuses research in disparate fields, where organizations and individuals can work together in a barrier-free environment.

Facts and Achievements 2012

l Challenge to revolutionary “ZEB” (Zero Energy Building) NanoGREEN/WPI-MANA was given the highest “S Rank” by CASBEE (Comprehensive Assessment System for Built Environment Efficiency), a scheme that evaluates and ranks buildings in terms of their environmental performance. For an effective utilization of natural energies, cutting-edge technologies can be found throughout NanoGREEN/WPI-MANA (see Fig. 4-5). Photocatalyst-coated glass watering system: On hot summer days, the rainwater stored in the top of the window glass is sprinkled. This produces evaporative cooling that controls radiant heat on the glass surfaces and adds a visual sensation of coolness. Solar panels: Solar panels were integrated into the building as part of the roofing materials. In addition, solar panels were also installed as window roofs connected to the pane glass. Wooden louvers: Louvers made from recycled wood control the penetration of sunlight into room interiors, thereby lowering the need for air-conditioning. They also diffuse daylight and utilize it as indirect light. Automatic blinds control system: An automatic blinds control system is installed in the entrance hall constructed with glass walls. The system raises or lowers the blinds depending on the amount of sunlight and adjusts slat angles following the sun’s position. It reduces the need for air-conditioning load while maintaining interior brightness.

Fig. 4-5: Effective utilization of natural energies. From left to right: Photocatalyst-coated glass watering system, solar panels, wooden louvers and automatic blinds control system. l “Melting Pot Environment” for transdisciplinary research NanoGREEN/WPI-MANA provides a research environment caring researcher’s habitability and comfort as well as encouraging spaces for free and broad-ranging interaction. Besides “Melting-Pot” in the atrium, offices and laboratories are designed as open spaces (see Fig. 4-6). Interaction spaces: All The glass-walled atrium holds a cafeteria on the first floor and interaction spaces on second to fifth floors. These areas serve as comfortable settings for far-reaching communication among NIMS and outside researchers and private-sector engineers. Full-height windows along the corridors: All the researchers' activities in the lab are open to being viewed externally. The office areas are also lined with glass windows—an environment that is open to communication. Principal Investigator offices: On each floor several researchers of different expertise share the same space in thereby fostering collaborations and creative ideas. Auditorium: The first-floor auditorium has stepped theater-type seating for 97 people. It is equipped with the latest audiovisual facilities and a large screen. It provides the perfect venue for lively discussions, seminars and workshops.

l “Micro-Grid System” – Eco-friendly in ordinal times, reliable in an emergency NanoGREEN/WPI-MANA is the first commercial “Micro-Grid System” installed building. This system integrates and controls multiple power sources by networking solar panels, emergency power generators, and storage batteries. NIMS’s disaster management base is functioned successfully by means of energy-saving in ordinal times and securing energy in an emergency. Peak-cut effect: NanoGREEN/WPI-MANA can obtain maximum 90kW of “Peak-cut effect” while various instruments, such as testing equipment, air-conditioners, and elevators, are in operation. Due to this effect, energy-saving is expected not only in the summer time which requiring high energy consumption, but also in the rest of the year. Self-sustained operation during disasters: During a power outage due to a large earthquake or lighting, “Micro-Grid system” can supply power to the critical facilities without interruption. Even if the emergency power generator’s fuel is exhausted by the long-term power outage, solar panels and emergency power generators can supply minimum-required power to lightings, computers, and water supply facilities. l Commemorative Ceremony for the Completion of NanoGREEN/WPI-MANA Building On July 5, 2012, a commemorative ceremony for the completion of the new NanoGREEN/WPI-MANA Building at Namiki site, NIMS, was held with over 150 attendees, including 116 guests (see Fig. 4-7). The ceremony began with an opening address by Dr. Sukekatsu Ushioda, NIMS President. Then four guests, Dr. Ken-ichi Ichihara (the Mayor of Tsukuba city), Mr. Koichi Morimoto (Deputy Director-General of the Research Promotion Bureau, MEXT), Dr. Teruo Kishi (Chair of Executive Board, Tsukuba Innovation Arena), and Prof. Toshio Kuroki (Director of WPI Program), made congratulatory speeches. They encouraged the researchers at MANA and Fig. 4-7: Participants of the Commemorative Ceremony expressed great expectations that further promotion of fusion in the Auditorium of the WPI-MANA Building. research will produce innovative results in various fields.

l Grand Challenge Meetings Once or twice a year, MANA holds a “camp”-type approach called “Grand Challenge Meetings.” About twenty MANA researchers are selected from among those who are interested in joining this meeting and they engage in free discussions about future grand challenges at MANA at a remote country site for two days. We have observed that this meeting proves remarkably useful for triggering fusion research between MANA’s scientists in different research fields. In January 2011, the first MANA Grand Challenge Meeting was held at Miura Peninsula. The meetings continued in April 2012 with the second MANA Grand Challenge Meeting at a hot-spring resort in Nasu, Tochigi prefecture, and in November 2012 with the Young researcher’s Grand Challenge Meeting at Miura Peninsula (see Fig. 5-6).

l 2011 Grand Challenge Research program In Fiscal Year 2011, the MANA Grand Challenge Research Program was launched as a way to encourage researchers to undertake innovative, "outside-the-box" interdisciplinary research not only limited to materials science. This initiative sought applications for risky yet challenging topics that matched the concept of nanoarchitectonics. MANA offered two types of grants: Class-S and Class-G projects. Grand Challenge Class-S projects (Seed research) Funding amount: up to 500,000 Yen Research duration: from October 2011 to March 2012 Awarded projects: 42 Grand Challenge Class-G projects (Grand Challenge research) Funding amount: up to 6,000,000 Yen Research duration: from November 2011 to March 2013 Awarded projects: 7 l 2012 MANA Theory-Experiment Fusion Research Program In Fiscal Year 2012, MANA has decided to launch the MANA Theory-Experiment Fusion Research Program. The purpose of this program is to continually incorporate theory, ranging from physics, chemistry, biology to mathematics, in order to form a powerful infrastructure that can frame difficult problems in a conceptual structure and to aid in visualizing and interpreting data via advanced theory simulations. In October 2012, MANA has awarded five Theory-Experiment Fusion Research projects (see Table 5-1) by review of the 13 submitted proposals and interview of the short-listed proposers. 2012 MANA Theory-Experiment Fusion projects Funding amount: up to 20,000,000 Yen Research duration: from October 2012 to March 2015 Awarded projects: 5

The breakdown of research papers in English with MANA Affiliation into the four research fields of MANA is shown in Table 5-2. MANA produces about 400 such papers per year, dominated by the contribution from the Nano-Materials Field. As a result of the effort of MANA to reinforce the Nano-Bio / Nano-Life Field, papers from this field have doubled from 39 in 2011 to 81 in 2012. Due to the promotion of interdisciplinary research activities at MANA, Double Field papers, co-authored by MANA scientists from two different research fields, have started to increase from 1.5% in 2011 to 3.0% in 2012. MANA continues to publish many papers in high-impact factor journals (see Tables 5-3 and 5-4). For papers with MANA Affiliation, the average journal impact factor has reached high values of 5.32 in 2012 (based on the journal impact factors 2012 published by Thomson Reuters) and of 5.31 in 2011 (based on the journal impact factors 2011 published by Thomson Reuters). The journal impact factor is a measure of the frequency with which the "average article" in a journal has been cited in a particular year. The impact factor helps to evaluate a journal's relative importance, especially when compared to others in the same field. Reflecting an advice form the WPI Program Committee, MANA prefers to write scientific papers with WPI-MANA Affiliation, and the number of additional research papers in English without MANA Affiliation decreased from 259 papers in 2011 to 190 papers in 2012. MANA researchers contributed to additional publications (not listed in this report), such as author or editor of publications in other languages than English, author of book chapters, and editor of books or Special Issues of Journals. Many MANA scientists are also members of the board of a journal (see MANA Progress Report, Facts and Achievements 2011, Appendix 8.9). l Special Issues on Materials Nanoarchitectnonics In Fiscal Year 2011, special issues on MANA were published in two original journals, thereby publicizing the unique concept of nanoarchitectonics and raising MANA's profile. One was a special issue of Science and Technology of Advanced Materials (August 2011; journal impact factor 2011: 3.513), a journal edited and published by MANA's host organization NIMS, and the other was a special issue of Advanced Materials (January 2012; journal impact factor 2012: 14.829), a journal published by John Wiley & Sons. For details, see MANA Progress Report, Facts and Achievements 2011, Appendix 8.8. In 2013, another special issue on materials nanoarchitectonics will appear in the journal Langmuir (Journal impact factor 2012: 4.187). l MANA Journal Cover Sheets Since the launch of the MANA project in October 2007, MANA scientists have produced many Journal cover sheets of issues that contain their research paper. Different kinds of Journal cover sheets (Journal Front Cover, Journal Inside Front Cover, Journal Back Cover, Journal Inside Back Cover, Journal Frontispiece) related to papers with MANA Affiliation between October 2007 and December 2012 are listed in Appendix 8.8.

5.3 Research Achievements In the 5 years that have passed since MANA was launched in October 2007, MANA has conducted world-class materials research that covers a wide sweep of programs from basic studies to advanced applications. MANA considers theoretical/computational research and the development of novel research equipment to be important. All research at MANA is conducted on the basis of “materials nanoarchitectonics”, which is an essentially important concept for new materials development. This section contains a brief description of MANA accomplishments. MANA conducts research in the four fields of Nano-Materials, Nano-System, Nano-Power and Nano-Life. Most of the projects represent the outcome of studies bridging several different research fields.

Facts and Achievements 2012

A) Revolutionary nanomaterials created by “nanosheet technology” MANA has developed a unique method to create novel materials, which is now well known as “nanosheet technology”. The method consists of exfoliating layered compounds into unilamellar nanosheets and re-stacking the nanosheets in a designated order to create a new material with a novel characteristic. By this method, we have created numerous revolutionary nanomaterials, a few of which are shown below. ● World’s-highest-dielectric-constant thin films We have developed Sr2Nb3O10 and Ca2Nb3O10 nanosheet films with a thickness of about 10 nm. They demonstrate the world’s highest dielectric constant of more than 200. These materials hold promise as a gate insulator of future field effect transistors (FETs, see Fig. 5-10). ● Surprising ferroelectric ultrathin films The LaNb2O7 and Ca2Nb3O10 nanosheet films are usually paraelectric, but, surprisingly enough, their hetero-assembled (superlattice) film becomes ferroelectric. This behavior may be ascribed to the formation of soft interface between the two different nanosheets, resulting in loss of centrosymmetry.

Fig. 5-10: Revolutionary nanomaterials created by “nanosheet technology”. Reference: M. Osada et al, Adv. Funct. Mater. 21, 3482 (2011).

B) Novel “low-dimensional” superconductors We have discovered various novel superconductors. Three examples are shown below. ● World’s first observation of surface macroscopic superconducting current Macroscopic superconducting current through a solid surface has been observed for the first time. Namely, the (111) surface of silicon modified with a small amount of indium, i.e. the Si(111)√7x√3-In surface, allows superconducting current to flow over a millimeter distance. This is surprising because numerous atomic steps existing on the surface do not disturb the transport of Cooper pairs of electrons. Systematic measurements of critical current and further analysis suggest that each surface atomic step works as a Josephson junction Fig. 5-11: Novel “low-dimensional” superconductors. Reference: T. Uchihashi et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 107, (see Fig. 5-11). 207001 (2011). ● Flexible fibriform superconductor We have developed flexible fibriform nanowhiskers made of C60 molecules. The C60 nanowhiskers can be doped with potassium (K) by heating the nanowhiskers in the vapor of K. Interestingly, a Meissner effect is observed for the K-doped C60 nanowhiskers at temperatures below about 15 K, indicating that the nanowhiskers are superconducting below the temperature. ● Ultrathin film superconductor Recently, we have discovered FeTe1-xSex, a superconductor with a superconducting temperature (Tc) of about 15 K. Interestingly, even when the material is in the form of an ultrathin film with a thickness as small as 20 nm, Tc is unchanged as compared with bulk FeTe1-xSex.

C) Nano-power generation/conversion/storage nanomaterials and systems One of the main concerns of MANA is the generation/conversion/storage of “power” at the nanoscale, where the term “power” represents “usable energy”. We have developed various nanomaterials and nanosystems for this purpose. Here are several examples of this cutting-edge technology. ● World’s highest photo-catalytic efficiency A new material was developed by incorporating phosphor (P) block element into a simple silver oxide (AgO) with a narrow band gap. The new photocatalytic material, Ag3PO4, demonstrates an extremely high quantum yield (~90% for photons with a wave length of ~420 nm) regarding water oxidation as well as organic contaminates decomposition under visible light. This study not only supplies a new strategy for developing visible-light-driven photocatalysts, but also shows a giant step toward realizing an artificial photosynthetic system. ● Nanogenerators for self-powering nanosystems We have developed a simple and effective approach called the scalable sweeping-printing-method for fabricating a flexible high-output nanogenerator (HONG) that can effectively harvest mechanical energy for driving a small commercial electronic component. The HONG consists of two main steps. In the first step, the vertically-aligned ZnO nanowires (NWs) are transferred to a receiving substrate to form horizontally-aligned arrays. Then, parallel stripe type electrodes are deposited to connect all of the NWs together. Using a single layer of HONG structure, an open-circuit voltage of up to 2.03 V and a peak output power density of ~11 mW/cm3 have been achieved. The generated electric energy was effectively stored utilizing capacitors, and it was successfully used to light a commercial light-emitting diode (LED), landmark progress toward building self-powered devices by harvesting energy from the environment. D) Boron nitride (BN) “white” nanotubes and nanosheet We have studied how to prepare boron nitride (BN) nanotubes and nanosheet (monomolecular layer) and have measured their physical properties comprehensively by transmission electron microscope (TEM). BN nanotubes and nanosheet are similar to carbon nanotubes and graphene in structure, but their electrical is far less than carbon nanotubes and graphene; we therefore call them “white” nanotubes and graphene. Recently, we have developed a new BN nanosheet synthesis process which we call “chemical blowing”. The nanosheet with thickness of 1-2nm can be created with high yield. We have also found that BN nanotubes have a high tensile strengths (~50 times stronger than steel) and BN nanosheet (“white” graphene) is a semiconductor. E) Revolutionary nanodevices MANA has developed various novel devices for the innovation of information and communication technology and has succeeded to materialize several new promising atomic, molecular and quantum devices as follows. ● Atomic switches as “Beyond CMOS” memory and logic devices The atomic switch is a unique switching device developed by MANA. Compared with the conventional CMOS transistor switch, the atomic switch is characterized by a nonvolatile character, simple structure, small size and low power consumption. In collaboration with NEC Corp., we have studied the use of atomic switches to fabricate a compact and high-performance field-programmable gate array (FPGA) and reached the technological level necessary for commercialization (see Fig. 5-12). Fig. 5-12: Practical application of atomic switches to materialize compact FPGA. Reference: e.g., T. Hasegawa et al., Adv. Mater. 24, 252 (2012).

Facts and Achievements 2012

● Atomic switches for neuromorphic computational network circuits Memory is believed to occur in the human brain as a result of two types of synaptic plasticity: short-term plasticity (STP) and long-term potentiation (LTP). STP is achieved through the temporal enhancement of a synaptic connection, which then quickly decays to its initial state. Fig. 5-13: Application of synaptic characteristics of atomic switch. However, repeated stimulation causes a permaReference: T. Ohno et al., Nature Mater. 10, 591 (2011). nent change in the connection to achieve LTP; shorter repetition intervals enable efficient LTP formation from fewer stimuli. Development of artificial (inorganic) synapse that emulates the STP and LTP behaviours is the key-issue in the realization of the Brain-type computer, which we have achieved using an Ag2S-based gap-type atomic switch (see Fig. 5-13). Namely, pulse input with a lower repetition rate only caused the temporal increase in conductance, corresponding to the STP-mode. Conversely, pulse input with a higher repetition rate achieved a persistent transition to the higher conductance state, corresponding to the LTP mode. The synaptic behaviours are useful for developing artificial neural networking systems made of all solid-state devices, which do not require any pre-programming. Preliminary studies have been made with promising results. ● Novel molecular devices We have found the following surprising fact for a C60 thin film. Two adjacent C60 molecules at any designated position in the film can be chemically bound into a dimer by the tip of the scanning tunneling microscope (STM), and moreover, if the polarity of voltage applied to the tip is reversed, the C60 dimer is dissociated reversibly. As an application of this phenomenon, we have demonstrated ultradense data storage with a bit density of 190 Tbit/in2. We have developed a method to create a single conductive linear polymer chain (polydiacetylene) at designated positions by initiating chain polymerization of monomers (diacetylene) Fig. 5-14: Novel molecular devices towards singlewith a scanning tunneling microscope (STM) tip. Using this molecular electronics. Reference: J. Okawa et al., J. method, we have studied construction of a two-terminal Amer. Chem. Soc. 133, 8227 (2011). nanowiring for a single phthalocyanine molecule and have succeeded in making nanowiring through chemical soldering or firm covalent bonding (see Fig. 5-14). ● Novel quantum devices MANA has developed a superconductor-based light emitting diode (LED). In this LED, electron Cooper pairs in a superconductor recombine with normal holes in a semiconductor emitting quantum-mechanically entangled photon pairs. This LED is expected to be the key device in quantum information technology because of its promising giant oscillator strength due to the large coherence volume of the superconducting pairs together with the possibility of the on-demand generation of entangled photon pairs. We have also developed an ultimate superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID), i.e. a nano-SQUID, which can detect even single or several spins. We have clarified the quantum interaction between a nano-SQUID with embedded quantum dots and spins in the quantum dots. This leads to the implementation of an entangled state between a superconducting qubit and spin qubit. The combination of these qubits is a promising candidate for a quantum interface that will be indispensable in the future quantum information network.

F) Novel nanoscale characterization/analysis methods ● Multiple-probe scanning probe microscopes We have been conducting a series of pioneering work for the development of multiple-probe scanning tunneling microscopes (MP-STMs) and atomic force microscopes (MP-AFMs). Recently, we have developed a STM images in which four conductive AFM probes are operated independently and simultaneously in frequency modulation mode using tuning-fork type sensors. By using this QP-AFM, we have succeeded to make four-probe measurement of the electrical conductivity of a flake of graphene put on an insulating substrate (SiO2, see Fig. 5-15). ● Novel ultrasensitive/ultraparallel molecular sensors We have developed a membrane-type surface stress sensor Fig. 5-15: Four probe measurement of the resistivity (MSS), which is useful for high-sensitivity sensing of various of a single layer graphene. Reference: T. Nakayama analytes ranging from gaseous to biological molecules. The anaet al., Adv. Mater. 24, 1675 (2012). lyte-induced isotropic surface stress on the membrane is efficiently transduced onto the piezoresistive beams as an amplified uniaxial stress. Experimental evaluation of a first prototype MSS demonstrates an ultrahigh sensitivity which is more than 20 times higher than that of a standard piezoresistive cantilever and comparable to that of optically read-out cantilevers. To demonstrate the capability of MSS for ultraparallel sensing, we have microfabricated a 2D array of MSS. By using this 2D MSS as a gas sensor, we succeeded in “visualizing smells” in real-time by converting signals from each channel in the 2D array into colored-pixels of the “picture.” G) Nano-life related materials research ● Novel bioimaging method Using the surface modification technique, several types of nanoparticles were prepared for bioimaging. Er-doped yttrium oxide (Er:Y2O3) nanoparticle emits not only near infrared (NIR) light but visible light under NIR excitation. The latter emission is called infrared-to-visible upconversion (UC) emission. Poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG)–based PEG-bpoly(vinylbenzyl phosphoric acid) (PEG-b-PVBP) stabilized the UC-nanoparticle, which can be utilized as near-infrared bioimaging tools. PEG-b-PVBP also stabilized ion oxide and can be utilized in vivo. Ion oxide nanoparticles thus prepared can be utilized as an MRI imaging probe as well as magnetite-assisted hyperthermia. H) Theoretical nanoscience ● Manipulation of quantum entanglement of nonlocal electron pairs We propose to measure Josephson current which is purely contributed from entangled electron pairs, by either co-tunneling or split-tunneling. In order to figure out how much split Cooper pairs contribute to the total Josephson current, the oscillation of maximal Josephson current is detected with response to the magnetic flux applied through the area enclosed by the two paths. When the contribution from split Cooper pairs equals to that from co-tunneling ones, the oscillation period is 2Φ0, whereas it should be Φ0 without split tunneling. This measurement gives an unambiguous evidence for the nonlocal quantum entanglement of electrons. ● Topological-superconductor Majorana-particle quantum bit system In a heterostructure consisting of a superconductor, semiconductor with large spin-orbit coupling and ferromagnetic insulator, if an odd number of fluxes exist in the superconductor, Majorana particles appear in the flux cores and at the edge of the superconductor. If we connect three such heterostructures through a gated pathway, we can control the exchange of Majorana particles between the heterostructures, so that we can make non-Abelian quantum bit operation.

Facts and Achievements 2012

● Mass-less Leggett mode in three-band superconductors The Leggett mode associated with out-of-phase oscillations of the superconducting phase in multiband superconductors usually is heavy due to interband coupling, which makes its excitation and detection difficult. We found the existence of a massless Leggett mode in three-band superconductors with time- reversal-symmetry breaking. The mass of this Leggett mode is small close to the time-reversal-symmetry-breaking transition and vanishes at the transition point, and thus locates within the smallest superconducting energy gap, which makes it stable and detectable, e.g., by means of the Raman spectroscopy. The thermodynamic consequences of this massless mode and possible realization in iron-based superconductors also attract our attention. ● Loss of charge character in Mott transition By using exact solutions and numerical simulations, single-particle spectral properties near the Mott transition are investigated in the one-dimensional Hubbard model. The results show pseudogap, hole-pocket behaviors, anomalous spectral-weight transfer, and the upper Hubbard band, which are reminiscent of anomalous features observed in cuprate high-Tc superconductors. In contrast with conventional metalto-band-insulator transitions, the Mott transition turned out to be characterized as a loss of charge character from the mode having both spin and charge characters, while the spin part Fig. 5-16: Theoretical studies of Loss of charge characremains almost unchanged. Or, from the insulating side, the ter in Mott transition. Reference: M. Kohno, Phys. Rev. Mott transition is characterized by the emergence of a gapless Lett. 108, 076401 (2012). mode whose dispersion relation extends up to the order of hopping integral t [spin exchange J ] in the weak [strong] interaction regime (see Fig. 5-16).

6. Global Network 6.1 MANA Satellites One element that is absolutely essential to the carrying out of research by MANA is satellite research. Out of the 24 Principal Investigators (PIs) at MANA, 8 are invited researchers based at outside research institutions at which MANA has established satellite laboratories. As of January 1, 2013, there are 7 MANA satellites, 2 in Japan, 3 in America and 2 in Europe (see Figs. 6-1 and 6-2). They collaborate closely with MANA to advance innovative research related to nanotechnology. Satellite institutions provide support for joint research in fields that cannot be covered by NIMS alone. The satellite PIs act as mentors to young researchers at MANA. It goes without saying that the satellites also serve as bases for disseminating and collecting information. End of March 2013, the two MANA satellite laboratories of Prof. Sir Mark E. Welland at University of Cambridge and Prof. Kazuo Kadowaki at University of Tsukuba have been closed. MANA plans to open a new MANA Satellite at University College of London in 2013.

6.2 Partnership with Foreign and Domestic Universities Since MANA is a part of a public research center and not a university, we strive to collaborate with foreign and domestic universities. In 2012 MANA continued to held joint symposia and a summer school with the aim of promoting research exchange and boosting MANA’s name recognition in order to scout for talent. l Examples of Joint Symposia in 2012 May 10, 2012 Australia/MANA joint workshop on Nanoarchitectonics for Innovative Materials & Systems On May 10, 2012, MANA and universities from Australia, including the University of Melbourne, jointly held a workshop with 98 participants to promote research collaborations in a wide variety of fields including nanotechnology, materials science, medical science, environmental and energy (see Fig. 6-4). This workshop was the first symposium held in the auditorium of the WPI-MANA Building.

July 19, 2012 1st UdeM-MANA workshop on Nano-Life On July 19, 2012, MANA and the University of Montreal (UdeM) held a joint workshop on Nano-Life at UdeM (see Fig. 6-5). The workshop with 32 participants aimed to promote cooperative research and exchange of researchers to execute the research on Nano-Life according to a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed between both institutes in 2011. August 27-31, 2012 The 8th MANA-Cambridge/UCL-UCLA Nanotechnology Summer School The 8th MANA-Cambridge/UCL-UCLA Nanotechnology Students' Summer School held at MANA on August 27-31, 2012, was organized by a collaboration of the three institutes, MANA of NIMS, Japan, Nanoscience Centre of University of Cambridge, UK, and California NanoSystems Institute of UCLA, USA (see Fig. 6-5). The 19 participating students of this workshop-style event were divided into three teams, where they became “agents” who should tackle the "Mission Impossible: Promoting ignorance, awareness, and crazy ideas" received from the instructors. The students spent much time for group work to execute the mission through active discussion by "agents" with different backgrounds such as research field, culture, nationality and age. Lectures by the instructors encouraged the students to think “crazy” while searching for innovative solutions to change the world with nanotechnology. On the last day of the school, each team presented a mission report and had to deal with questions and comments from the instructors. November 7, 2012 NSQI-MANA Joint Symposium On November 7, 2012, the NSQI-MANA Joint Symposium, co-organized by the Centre for Nanoscience and Quantum Information (NSQI), University of Bristol, and MANA, was held at MANA, with the purpose to promote research collaborations in the field of nano-science between both institutes.
