Technology theme: Development of innovative adhesion technologies for realizing Society 5.0
The realization of Society 5.0 requires transforming everything to become compact and multifunctional. The establishment of adhesion technologies is essential as a key technology for the realization of innovative devices. In the field of mobility, for example, using nonmetals or polymers for a lighter body, electric driving with batteries, and compact electronic devices for auto cars are intelligent ideas, for which the established reliance on adhesion technologies and improved performances are indispensable. However, adhesion technologies are currently developed with the experience and intuition of skilled people. The lack of established methods for the evaluation and analysis of adhesion interfaces (*) between solids is a bottleneck for the creation of the next-generation adhesion technologies. This technology theme aims to establish evaluation and analysis methods for the adhesion interface and create next-generation adhesion technologies based on scientific findings for the realization of Society 5.0.
*Adhesion interface includes the surrounding adhesion layers hereafter.

Innovative Adhesion Technology Based on 4-dimensional Multi-scale Analysis of Interfaces
Program Manager: TANAKA Keiji (Professor, Department of Applied Chemistry, Kyushu University)
R&D Period: 2018.11-
Grant Number: JPMJMI18A2
The objective of this project is to introduce an innovative state-ofthe-art adhesion technology based on an in-situ 4-D multi-scale analyses of adhered interfaces, in conjunction with molecular-level manipulation and fabrication of polymers. This collaborative work involves strong collaboration between the academe and the industry rooted from establishing fundamental science at interfaces to manufacturing of components for mobilities utilizing the envisioned adhesion technology.
This project could also lead significant developments in the areas of sensors and devices,electronics, social infrastructure, and manufacturing, envisioned to accelerate the realization of Society 5.0 by linking these achieved goals to social economic structure transformation.
