23 December 2021 – 3DOM’s CTO, Professor Kiyoshi Kanamura of Tokyo Metropolitan University, received The Award of The Electrochemical Society of Japan※１ (Takei Award)※２ for 2022 in recognition of his creation of multiscale storage battery and fuel cell materials based on structural control and interface design.
“I am honored to be selected for The Award of The Electrochemical Society of Japan. I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere gratitude for the support and assistance of the researchers and engineers I worked with,” says 3DOM CTO Kiyoshi Kanamura.
“Our research on the ‘creation of multiscale storage battery and fuel cell materials based on structural control and interface design’ was recognized because the results obtained by expanding our research on interface analysis, cathode and anode material synthesis, and separators, which are necessary for battery development, from the nm to cm order contributed to the development of practical batteries. In particular, I think it was considered original that we introduced the three-dimensionally ordered macroporous structure in the scale of μm into the world of batteries. Our research on 3DOM separators has been recognized worldwide and is the source of the company’s name. I am determined to continue my research in order to live up to this award, contribute to the battery field, and make further progress in technological development.”
