found in butterfly wing scales as a basic technological platform for a new analytical technique intrigued him. As part of his graduation thesis, he carried out a detailed study on correlation between morphology of silver-coated scales and their effectiveness for surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy. He has made his first presentation at the 76th Annual Conference of the Japan Society of Analytical Chemistry at Gifu in 2017, followed by a presentation at Pittcon 2017 in Chicago, USA. Now he is enrolled in the Master's program at the Graduate School of Life Sciences at Toyo University under the supervision of Prof. H Takei. While the main emphasis is exploitation of silver-coated scales for practical SERS applications, he is also interested in obtaining a basic understanding how different areas of the nanostructures contribute to SERS effects. Different scales are characterized by different SERS performance, and even within a single area, dorsal and ventral scales, external and internal, need to be characterized separately
