I would like to thank my Sensei, Prof. Eiji Haramoto, for his limitless kindness, support, patience, and guidance. I also want to say thank you to my friends in the laboratory, especially Dr. Bikash, who always gave me guidance about my study. And also I would like to thank a person from another laboratory as my personal motivation to always work hard. I think I am not a talented person, but I believe hard work beats talent. I will keep working hard to become a good researcher.”
