Research and Development of Optical Pumping Atomic Magnetometers
When alkali metal atoms such as potassium, rubidium, and cesium are irradiated by a laser at an absorption wavelength, electrons are pumped into an excited state. Since these excited atoms undergo precession in a magnetic field, an ultra-sensitive magnetic sensor can be realized by measuring the polarization change of transmitted light with a laser beam. We use elliptically polarized laser beams to simultaneously realize excitation and polarization measurement with only one laser beam. This technology can be used in next-generation nondestructive testing and metal detection machines.
I train my students so that they can become active researchers and engineers in the field of electrical, electronic, and communication engineering. I train them by emphasizing the importance of having a point of view based on physical principles, thinking things through on one's own, the ability to try things out without fear, and solving difficulties through ingenuity.
