Proactive joint research with companies in the field of superconductors
I develop new magnetization methods for bulk superconductors to realize supplementary magnetic fields exceeding 6 Tesla in small, transportable equipment. This research, which clarifies magnetization phenomena through the simultaneous measurement of temperatures and magnetic fields, is at the forefront in fields that make use of superconductors, such as magnetic separation in sewage treatment. I also proactively conduct joint research with companies. I also grow new types of bulk superconductor crystals, and am building a database of thermophysical properties of various oxide superconductors in low temperatures and strong magnetic fields.
I educate students to gain the fundamental knowledge in the material sciences (particularly the field of electronic materials) and physics necessary for physical and material science and engineering, and use this knowledge to develop scientific technologies.
