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 2016, the RIEC Open Day was taken place on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th 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 computer simulation of crystal growth, ultra-high speed optical fiber data transmission, wireless magnetic motion capture, and cutting-edge programming. Furthermore, visitors were able to join handicraft courses for some simple electronic gadgets such as piezoelectric speakers, germanium radios, solar cells using familiar pigments, go stone puzzles, and rainbow-colored kaleidoscopes.
In 2016, the RIEC Open Day will be held on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th of October. Your participation is greatly welcomed.
