An introduction to faculty staff members and laboratories in the Astronomy and Astrophysics.
Note: Information on the laboratories is current as of the 2023 academic year. There may be changes to this information in the 2024 academic year.
- General Relativity and Cosmology Laboratory
General Relativity, Gravitation, Cosmology
Investigation is conducted into overall space dynamics and black holes using general relativity. A focus of research is on high-dimensional space models and high-dimensional black holes, which look at the possibilities of high-dimensional space-time.
- Laboratory for Cosmology
Cosmology, Astrophysics, Galactic Astronomy
Dark matter and dark energy are mysterious substances that account for a large portion of the universe. Solutions to these mysterious substances are sought using general relativistic phenomena on cosmic scales such as gravitational lenses, gravitational waves and cosmic inhomogeneity.
- High-energy Astrophysics Lab.
X-ray observations have revealed that the universe is hot and energetic. My research focuses on high-energy phenomena occurring in our galaxy. I am also developing the CCD detector onboard the XRISM satellite.
