  • Research
  • Recently, in the stage of early planning and concept design for ships and other large structures, the designer must take into account the shortest term, highest accuracy, lowest cost and best efficiency when selecting a plan from among many structural models. In this stage, it is not always easy to make designs using large structural analysis by FEM. Our studies focus on the structural analysis with optimal accuracy and efficiency needed in the early-stage design of frame structures and thin-walled structures, and on the practical application system of structural analysis implementing new concepts.

  • 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.

  • Recently, the reduction in size and weight of machine products is given as one approach of the industrial world to energy problems. However, the vibration and noise problem at high frequency shows a tendency to occur because of the thin plate structure. The following contents are examined using energy analysis methods.
    i) Identification of vibration source and noise source

  • Molecular Electronics Solid State Physics
  • Research
  • 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.

  • The purpose of this research is development of robots which is used in various fields and applied for human society. For example, exploration of ocean resources are expected, while operations on underwater are dangerous for human. Therefore, AUVs (Autonomous Underwater Vehicles) are needed on behalf of human worker. To apply robots for such projects, robust hardware, sensing system and adaptive control system are needed. Additionally, in order to apply robots in crowded area,not only navigation system but safety of human should be considered.

  • In order to plan and design various kinds of offshore structures, it is necessary to analyze and evaluate the hydrodynamic performance of those offshore structures. We study a method to predict, theoretically and experimentally, the response character- istics of offshore structures with reference to the effect of mooring system in waves.
    Moreover, a new type of offshore structure with excellent performance is investigated by use of the above method, and its potential for realization is evaluated.

  • 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.
