Energy Science


It is necessary to explore complex issues such as securing energy resources and conserving the environment from the perspective of comprehensive fields, not just the field of engineering. Also, in order to propose new technology that leads to the creation of new industries, we need to break down these complicated problems into each element (systems approach) and look at them from a broad angle. The method to clarify the mechanism of the phase transitions in magnetic materials is similar to the method to solve complicated problems related to energy. To realize a sustainable society using the knowledge of magnetic materials and the research methods acquired from the magnetic phase transition study, we will work on energy related issues. Topics discussed in classes include “Proposal of energy problem solving methods using new principles,” “Realization of energy conversion technology using new methods,” and “Development of energy efficient and environment-friendly production process.”
