ATSUMI Hisao

Position
Professor
Laboratory
Energy Engineering Laboratory
Energy Materials, Energy Conversion, Energy Education

Looking ahead to future energy applications, this laboratory is researching 1) nuclear fusion energy to produce electricity using the same principle that powers the sun, 2) hydrogen storage materials used in hydrogen fuel cells, and 3) thermoelectric conversion to produce electricity directly from heat.

NOGAMI Masanobu

Position
Professor
Laboratory
Nuclear Chemistry Laboratory
Separation Chemistry, Radiation Chemistry

We are working to develop new separation technologies and new functional materials using radiation in order to make effective use of radioactive substances not only in atomic energy applications, but also with the aim of expanding into other areas such as healthcare.
