Dilution refrigerator and superconductive magnet

We provide a variety of study courses for the acquisition of a thinking sense and skills of mathematics and physics. Students will search for rules of nature, and deepen their comprehension of physics and mathematical science through their own experiences. In the physical science field, we offer the lecture of condensed matter physics, which mainly searches for new characteristics and new substances, and modern physics, which seeks the origins of matter and the universe. And in the field of mathematical science, we aim to unravel the complexities of physical phenomena and social phenomena through a mathematical approach, such as mathematical statistics, complex systems science, and game theory. Besides, students may take classes in the Materials Science and Engineering course in the common education frame. In addition to basic studies, students will acquire industrial and applied materials science as well as a broad range of knowledge and skills.

Field of Physical Sciences

Students study subjects such as electromagnetics, quantum physics, solid-state physics in order to cultivate basic physics skills, and condensed matter physics and basic physics to acquire application skills in physics. In condensed matter physics we study superconductivity, magnetism, and nanocharacteristics, and in basic physics we study the elementary particles, nuclei, and the universe and their observation methods.

Field of Mathematical Sciences

In order to develop the fundamentals of mathematical science, students study subjects such as applied differential equations, applied probability statistics, and numerical analysis. They also study subjects such as complex systems science and game theory in order to acquire application skills in mathematical science.

I found the pleasure of observing new quantum phenomena by investigating the physical properties through large-scale experiments.

We are focusing on specialized materials, such as magnetic materials and superconductive materials. We investigate their crystal structure and their properties through various experimental methods. In particular, we determine the elastic properties of the firmness or softness of a material from the sound velocity transmitted through crystals. The experiments were difficult because I had to adjust the experimental conditions for each substance to find the optimal conditions. But that just made me even happier when I succeeded and especially at the moment when I obtained the first and only data in the world about those substances with my own hands.
The physics and chemistry knowledge of high school is an important foundation for the lecture at the university. I hope you will thoroughly acquire this foundation and connect it to specialized subjects at university.

Career Paths

The mathematical and physical thinking skills and sense to pursue the essence of things are indispensable problem-solving skills in the diversity and complexity of modern society. Students will play an active role in a broad range of fields as researchers and developers. Many are also expected to go on to graduate school, where they will be able to learn about specialized fields in even greater depth.

Research and educational organizations such as universities, high schools and national research institutes / electricity and electronics / metallic materials / SE / financial services / information services / civil service in the government, such as prefectural and municipal offices / going on to graduate school, etc.
