Offering Engineering, Medical, and Pharmaceutical Company Perspectives on New Developments in TMR

The Department of Advanced Spintronics Medical Engineering (ASPIME) was established in the Graduate School of Engineering, Tohoku University on January 1, 2022, under supports from Otsuka Pharmaceutial Co. Lt. and SpinSensingFactory Inc.

ASPIME is led by Prof. Yasuo Ando, and the collaborative laboratory consists of members from engineering and medical research fields.

We aim to expand practical application fields of the highly sensitive tunnel magnetoresistance (TMR) sensor which has been developed by Spintronics Laboratory in Department of Applied Physics, Tohoku University.

Our goal is to develop medical care applications for the TMR sensor achievable by bringing together engineering, medicine, and pharmaceutical company perspectives.
