Due to the reorganization the laboratory name has been changed to “Laboratory of Plasma Application for Biotechnology” in Department of Quantum Science and Technology. Associate Prof. S. Oikawa moved to Laboratory of Plasma Processing for Materials Engineering and Associate Prof. Yuji Yamauchi arrived at his post.
Electromagnetic waves, such as light or radiation, and plasmas are used in various fields of industry. They are also used in the research and development of the nuclear fusion reactor, that is recognized as a future energy source. In recent years, the application of the electromagnetic waves and/or the plasmas have been widespread to the “biotechnology”, such as medical and agricultural fields. In order to expand these applicability of electromagnetic waves and plasmas, we have been tackling research. Our concrete goals are
- to clarify the characteristics of materials and living bodies (tissues) irradiated with light, electromagnetic waves or plasmas
- to investigate the characteristics of light, electromagnetic waves or plasmas,
by use of both the experiments and/or the numerical computations.
