Press Release
Increasing data use is placing greater demands on the radio antenna units that transmit data to mobile devices. Supplying power to these antenna units by the same optical fibre systems that transmit data signals to them could improve and simplify these infrastructures if the power supplied this way can be increased. Now Motoharu Matsuura, Hidehito Furugori and Jun Sato at the University of Electro-Communications have demonstrated the ability to supply 60 W over a 300 m test fibre system, exceeding the power supplied in previous work and emphasising the potential of the approach.
e-Bulletin
The December 2015 of the UEC e-Bulletin is a special issue dedicated to highlighting the excellence in research of eight young members of faculty on the UEC Tenure Track Program, where the 'Topics' section showcases their unique and challenging research.
The contents of December 2015 UEC e-Bulletin are Research Highlights on the limitations of wireless transceivers; brain research on walking control and the influence of lower limb co-ordination; snake robot range-sensing control system that avoids tail-end collisions; and random additions to efficiently anonymize large data sets. Tenure track based Topics articles on geophysics insights into the origins of sodium and other metallic layers in the Earth's upper atmosphere; neuroscience research on creating realistic computational models of the cerebellum; astrophysics of the birth of high mass stars and the origin of life; and cotranscriptional folding and computational modelling of self-assembly of RNA origami for universal computation. News summary of the Irago Conference 2015 held at Cape Irago, Aichi Prefecture in October 2015.
Press Release
Ultrafast and high efficiency manipulation of the quantum states of helium with high power lasers enables the realization of femtosecond two photon Rabi oscillations. The research was reported online in Nature Photonics on 30 November 2015 and has potential applications for room temperature quantum computing.
News
The University of Electro-Communications, Tokyo (UEC, Tokyo) welcomed more than 200 participants to the third 'Unique & Exciting Research Symposium, UEC' on 3rd December 2015. These highly successful series of symposia are supported by the MEXT Program for promoting the Enhancement of Research Universities.

A delegation led by Yu Wang, president of the Academy of Opto-Electronics (AOE), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), visited the University of Electro-Communications, Tokyo (UEC, Tokyo) to discuss collaborating on optical engineering and opto-electronics research with Kaoru Minoshima at the Department of Engineering Science, Graduate School of Informatics and Engineering, UEC.
Press Release
Polymer electrolyte fuel cells (PEFC) could provide an alternative to traditional fossil fuel power, but higher performance and durability under harsh conditions are needed before PEFC vehicles can be considered commercially viable. Now researchers at the University of Electro-Communications, the University of Tokushima and Japan Synchrotron Radiation Research Institute in Japan have synthesised catalysts from platinum cobalt (PtCo3) nanoparticles on carbon (C) with tin oxide (SnO2) nanoislands and shown that they perform better than any previously reported.
Press Release
Tiny nanoscale molecules in the form of spherical carbon cages, or 'fullerenes', have received considerable attention in recent years. Individual or small groups of atoms can be trapped inside fullerenes, creating stable molecules with unique electronic structures and unusual properties that can be exploited in the field of nanomaterials and biomedical science.
e-Bulletin
The contents of the September 2015 issue of the University of Electro-Communications e-Bulletin include: feature article on innovative organolead halide perovskite solar cells solar cells with conversion efficiencies over 20%; research highlights on quantum dot solar cells, and a paper on the analysis of apparently smooth movements that may help to understand jerky motor motion; news summaries on the launch of the UEC Info-Powered Energy System Research Center (iPERC), the visit of delegates from Binghamton University, State University of New York, and proceedings of the Japanese Neural Network Society Workshop on "Data-driven approach for understanding cerebellar mechanisms on eye movement control" held at UEC; topical spotlights on UEC students receiving awards at an international conference, and Professor Takayoshi Kobayashi's pioneering research on ultrashort pulse lasers, ultrafast spectroscopy, and quantum information.
Press Release
The creation of lasers that can generate a coherent stream of X-ray radiation at short wavelengths has long been a goal for scientists. The primary aim of such 'X-ray lasers' is to produce high quality, high resolution images of tiny targets, such as molecules. However, the wavelengths of lasers developed to date are still too large to result in clear, detailed images of such targets.
e-Bulletin
The June 2015 issue of the University of Electro-Communications e- Bulletin includes research highlights on advanced wireless and communications; exotic chemistry processes in the formation of star; insights into electron transport in the semi-metal, bismuth; mathematical approach to deciphering noisy observations using multiterminal source coding; physics of light-matter interaction on the atomic scale; and the findings of an information technology based approach for the analysis of onomatopoeia.
