Welcome to Our Website！
Nagano Laboratory at Rikkyo University has newly started in April 2020. In the present day of COVID-19, the smooth start-up of a laboratory is difficult, but eight 4th-year students were assigned to our Lab in April and two 3rd-year students in October. They are working hard and reliably to carry out their research steadily.
As typified by LCDs, our goals are to create new material functions emergent by dynamically designing the nanostructures and molecular orientations of soft materials such as LCs and polymers. Now, we are developing the molecular orientational functions of LC polymer materials, such as photo-reorientation of LC polymers and block copolymers, photoaligned directed self-assembled lithography materials, photoaligned ion-conductive polymers, the thermal conductivity of liquid crystalline polymers.

After the Spring semester
At the annual meeting of the Society of Polymer Science Japan, we had gave four presentations by RU. Fortunately, two presentations by NU won the poster awards! we take off to a good start
