We have several unique and large-scale facilities in the Experimental BuildingAsuch as plasma facilities RT-1, UTST and a hypersonic high-enthalpy wind tunnel. Utilizing these facilities for both education and research activities, we are pushing on the following high-revel projects in cooperation with, inside the university and outside. Of course, we cooperate with our partner institutions; Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) and Central Research Institute of Electric Power Industry.
In the age of the ITER development, highly educated researchers are needed more than before. In addition, we are requested to provide talented youth to industries and academic institutions in the wide range of fields from plasma physics to plasma applications. Therefore, research topics should be an integration of various fields, and students have to experience on-the-job training in the forefront of theoretical studies, experiments, and simulation researches. In this project, wefll be a core of the network-type professional education and research system and promote academic exchange with world top-class universities and institutions in the field of plasma physics and fusion technologies in cooperation with Department of Complexity Science and Engineering.
We propose gan university-wide innovative challenge integrating humans, goods, the earth and spaceh aiming at gensuring sufficient energy supply for future space activitiesh and gsolving the terrestrial energy shortage problem by solar power stationsh in cooperation with other departments, graduate schools at the opportunity of the International Space Station completion.
