  • The quantum chromo dynamics predicts the existence of an extreme state of hadronic matter at temperature of ~150 MeV. That is called "Quark Gluon Plasma (QGP)" where quarks and gluons are released from the confinement and act as free particles. QGP may had existed in the early universe. In this research group, we join the ALICE experiment at the LHC (Large Hadron Collider) at CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research). ALICE's main goal is to measure properties of QGP by colliding two nuclei at almost the speed of light. Advanced measurement, electronics, and information technology areessential for large scale physics experiments. We develop a high-performance computing system (HPC) using FPGA, CPU and network technologies to process the big-data from the detector system at beyond 1 TB/s.

  • Essential electronic properties in solid-state-physics such as electrical conductivity, magnetism, optics, and superconductivity are investigated. On the basis of theoretical analyses of these electronic properties, we try to design high quality materials which are applicable to nanoelectronics. For example,we attempted recently to elucidate the mechanism of the occurrence of non-dissipative diamagnetic currents in molecular systems, which remains unknown despite efforts over a period of seventy years. We also propose conditions for the realization of the occurrence of superconductivity in bulk systems at room temperature.

  • Major part of normal matter, which is composing our Universe, consists of hadrons. Hadrons, which include protons and neutrons, are the composite particles consisting of quarks. Quarks, elementary particles, are bound via a strong force with intermediate boson named gluons. The strong force is described with the QCD (Quantum Chromo Dynamics), one of the four fundamental interactions.
    Although quarks are tightly bound in the shell of hadrons, they are freed from the confinement at high temperature (about 2 trillion degree) due to the QCD phase transition. We call this new state of matter as Quark Gluon Plasma. A unique method to realize this kind of extreme conditions in the laboratory is to smash the two heavy nuclei (such as Au or Lead) at relativistic energies, and such research has been carried out using the LHC (Large Hadron Collider) at CERN.
    We will conduct the experimental research to investigate the properties of QCD phase transition and QGP state in detail with high precisions. To precede progressively the experimental research, development of cutting-edge detector technologies, high-rate data-handling system, and data analysis hardware and software, are indispensable. We will focus on the development of photon detectors and data handling technologies.
    We anticipate that the outcomes from these researches will be utilized in the industrial applications such as non-destructive inspections, as well as fundamental researches, and will place emphasis on the practical applications.

  • High-speed Front-End Electronics system using source synchronous technology was developed and installed in 2000 at Brookhaven National Laboratory for PHENIX RICH detector. Currently the upgrade system for ALICE detector at CERN LHC is studying with Prof. Oyama and Prof. Hamagaki at NiAS. As a local research contribution for companies and society, smart-city and smart wellness city applied by ICT and IoT, Embedded and Integrated-Circuit, and/or using Big Data are going on current project.
