Bridgestone Begins R&D on Tire Materials Using Next-Gen Synchrotron Radiation Facility

Bridgestone has begun research and development of tire materials utilizing NanoTerasu, a 3GeV high-brilliance synchrotron radiation facility located on the new Aobayama Campus of Tohoku University. NanoTerasu utilizes soft X-rays, which are suitable for observing polymer materials such as rubber, to observe polymer materials widely used in tire products on a molecular scale. By understanding the characteristics of polymer materials…
