My Areas of Research
The research of new non-destructive deterioration diagnosis methods and quality inspection methods for metal materials
As the social infrastructure of power plants, etc. continues to age, maintenance efforts to ensure that they remain safe are important. To that end, it is necessary to develop non-destructive diagnostic methods that do not damage the structures. Atomic arrangements in metals fall out of alignment (lattice defects), advancing deterioration. I research new non-destructive deterioration diagnosis methods using ultrasonic waves and magnets that are sensitive to lattice defects. This technology can also be applied to the non-destructive quality inspection of various metal products, such as automobiles.
My Teaching Philosophy
I educate students to develop flexible thinking and problem-solving skills through the fields of material science and material engineering, and to apply these to society with an ability to contribute to the creation and development of innovations in science and technology.
