I would try Dr. Toshihiko Sato or Kyoko Kaminaga, Hokkaido University, Japan, both of Anodizer's Plaza (see our WWW links for their last known address).. If not there, try Alutopia =Aluminum + Utopia Magazine, published in Japanese by Kallos Publishing Co. Ltd. phone (03)3562-5736, fax (03)3561-7080.
Perhaps Professor Sato can assign the task to one of his students, given an appropriate grant.
