The world's first pneumatic endoscope manipulator
In August 2015, Riverfield will begin selling the world's first pneumatically controlled surgical assist robot that can smoothly manipulate endoscopes to increase a surgeon's control and precision. Riverfield, a Tokyo-based venture company launched by the Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Tokyo Medical and Dental University (TMDU), has built a compact, lightweight and easy-to-use surgical assist robot called EMARO.
Thin films offer promise for ferroelectric devices
Researchers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology demystify the ferroelectric properties observed in hafnium-oxide-based thin films, revealing a potentially useful device material.
13.9cm2/V·s FET mobility achieved by liquid crystals
Researchers at Tokyo Institute of Technology and the Japan Science and Technology Agency have designed a liquid crystal molecule that produces high-performance organic field effect transistors with good temperature resilience and relatively low device variability, in addition to high mobility.
