We develop a combination method of a Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM) and a physical property measurement device. And we conduct researches contributing to creative science and technology in the 21st century by searching for the structure and properties of unknown nanomaterials.

 Physical chemistry of surfaces and nanoscale materials is deeply involved in nanotechnology, environmental technology, information technology and life science. The physicochemical phenomena of surface and nanoscale materials have been elucidated in various forms, and new substances have been discovered. But researches of physicochemical phenomena at atomic scale and searching for new substances, such as the catalytic effect of metal nanoparticles, have just begun.

 TEM has extremely high spatial resolution. TEM is the powerful techinique of discovering "unknown materials" such as carbon nanotubes and exploring "unkown nanophysical properties". Such "research on microscopic physical properties" is unique from global perspective.
