Interviews with Students

Research on Electrostatic precipitator effective in preventing infection.

ONO Mimona

[from Morioka Chuo High School, Iwate Prefecture]

The reason why I decided to study at the Faculty of Science and Engineering at Iwate University was to collaborate with the local community. As a native of Morioka City myself, I decided that I wanted to acquire more specialized knowledge in mathematics and science, which were my favorite subjects, and make use of this knowledge for the benefit of society.

I am currently conducting research on electrostatic precipitators in which particles and microorganisms are charged in the discharge section by ions generated by high-voltage plasma, and particles and microorganisms are collected on the electrodes by the Coulomb force generated by the electric field between the electrodes. Electrostatic precipitator technology is used in air purifiers, etc. Recently, it has attracted attention in terms of infection prevention, such as the collection of droplets and aerosols in new coronavirus infection. I would like to learn about the development of smaller and safer products so that these technologies can be used more easily in our daily lives.
