Development of rare-earth-free BCNO phosphor

We have succeeded in developing of BCNO phosphor using a facile process, without any additional rare earth materials. Emission color of BCNO phosphor can be easily controlled from blue to near red by controlling the ratio of atoms in BCNO. The synthesized BCNO can be applied as a phosphor component in white light emitting diode (LED) devices. This research is conducted in a collaboration with Prof. Kikuo Okuyama's Group at Hiroshima University.

Perpendicular FePt Nanoparticles for High Density Recording

The phenomenon of atomic motion between the nanoparticle and its substrate was examined in constructing perpendicularly aligned FePt nanoparticle structures. The measurements for the in-plane and out-of-plane direction exhibited perpendicularly oriented magnetization and a L10 ordered phase with a perpendicular easy axis orientation. These results might open a new path toward ultrahigh density storage media from chemically synthesized FePt nanoparticles.This research has been conducted in a collaboration with Prof. Kikuo Okuyama's Group at Hiroshima University and Toshiba Corp., Japan.
