On June 19th-20th 2017, Diamond-Like Carbon - DLC Research Group Japan and Synchrotron Light Research Institute (SLRI) Thailand, organized the “1st Colloquium Between DLC Research Group Japan and Synchrotron Light Research Institute (SLRI) Thailand” in the aim to explore the potential collaboration in DLC research with synchrotron applications.
For the first time, a group of DLC from Japan sincerely attend the meeting at SLRI office in Nakhonratchasima to provide an introduction to DLC techniques while a group of SLRL scientists share the information on synchrotron technology. .
During this meeting, 8 speakers from DLC group kindly participated as followed:
1. Prof. Hidetoshi Saitoh from Nagaoka University of Technology
2. Prof. Tsuneo Suzuki from Nagaoka University of Technology
3. Prof. Hiroki Akasaka from Tokyo Institute of Technology
4. Prof. Yasuhara Ohgoe from Tokyo Denki University
5. Prof. Masami Aono from National Defense Academy
6. Dr. Tsuguyori Ohana from National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology
7. Dr. Takako Nakmura from National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology
8. Mr. Xiao Long Zhou from Nagaoka University of Technology
The session include a discussion on DLC study and research exchange
“Diamond-Like Carbon” or DLC is a carbon film with similar characteristic as diamond and unique in high corrosion and attrition resistance. This ability of DLC is recognized in several applications particularly with industrial applications such as auto-parts, electronic, metal coating, packaging, food, and biomedical materials.
