Editor's Note

The total number of Tokyo Tech Newsletters posted on the official website in 2018 was 216, and there were 44 Special Topics (as of December 7, 2018). In each issue of the Tokyo Tech Newsletter we share the enthusiasm that individual students and faculty have for their research and education. We will continue to publish interesting and informative features on Tokyo Tech activities in 2019.
