Mogic considers

With the combination of a small number of people + software + servers and robots
We are promoting a new era of company management.
We hope to share part of this process with you in this corner.

The obvious in slow motion.

Whenever I have time, I take my time and look into fields I have never heard of before, and I am amazed to hear that new measurements are being made in attoseconds, or 10 to the 18th power of a second, in the latest areas of chemistry.

Looking at the wave function in attosecond science *Seconds in parentheses added for clarity

Each time region has its own characteristic phenomena.

The lifetime of the phosphorescence produced when a substance is illuminated by light is in the microsecond (millionth of a second) range.

Similarly, the lifetime of fluorescence produced when a substance is illuminated by light is in the nanosecond (one billionth of a second) to picosecond (one trillionth of a second) range.


Chemical reactions involving vibrational wave packet motion of molecules and primordial recombination in molecules occur in the region of femtoseconds (fs: one thousand trillionth of a second).

In attosecond (as: one hundredth of a kilometer) time, electron dynamics can be measured faster than the time it takes for the conformational change of a molecule to occur.

Not to speak of time units this minute, but even in daily life, what we see differs depending on the time frame set.

The scenery that flows by as you fly down the highway and the atmosphere that you can feel as you wander along the road.

The hurried commute to work and the return home where you can suddenly feel dinner being prepared.

I am both impatient to achieve it and deeply thankful for it.

So this year, I decided to take one thing for granted and try to rethink the work I had taken for granted in various slow-motion ways.

I even wrote that if I slowed down, I might be able to find something important that I have missed so far, and then, ah, this preface has already taken too long as a New Year's greeting.

To get back on track, this year Mogic will be celebrating its 15th anniversary with many events.

We are beginning to prepare for everyone's enjoyment.

We look forward to working with you again this year.
