Research Institute of Electrical Communication Tohoku University


Every year RIEC holds an open day to present research and educational activities to the public, university staff, students and alumni as well as representatives from the industry. In 2017, the RIEC Open Day was taken place on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th of October. All the research laboratories, research centers, and machine shops of RIEC exhibited various types of demonstrations focused on their research fields.
The exhibitions included some historical devices and instruments developed in RIEC, such as magnetron tubes and steel recorders, historical milestones of RIEC activities. On the other hand, experiments on cutting-edge research were also demonstrated, such as non-volatile logic computer with low power consumption, ultra-high speed optical fiber data transmission, the intriguing behavior of electric circuits, and the mechanism of sound localization. Furthermore, visitors were able to join handicraft courses for some simple electronic gadgets such as avatar drawing, germanium radios, rainbow-colored kaleidoscopes, clip motor, and solar cells using natural pigments.
In 2018, the RIEC Open Day will be held on Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th of October.
