Field of Specialization
During 1988-1994, the radio-frequency(RF) heating and current drive of the high temperature plasma bu use of WT-3 tokamak device in Faculty of Science, Kyoto University. During 1994-1997, the design and consturuction of TST-M spherical tokamak was executed in Fucultu of Science, University of Tokyo and the collaborating study on confinement of high temperature plasma was executed on JFT-2M, which is in Japan Atomic Energy Research Institute. SInce 1997, study on steady state operation of tokamak has been executed by radio-frequency current drive on TRIAM-1M in Research Institute for Applied Mechanics, Kyushu Univesity. In 2004, Compact PWI EXperimental Device (CPD) was established and the experiments on CPD was started from 2005. From 2005 to 2007, Main parts of Kyushu University Experiment with Steady-state Spherical Tokamak (QUEST) has been completed. From 2008, full-fledged experiments was executed and spherical tokamak configurations has been established using full non-inductive current drive technique. Plasma current of 25kA and maintenance of plasmas for more than 30 s were achieved in 2010. Divertor configurations in the spherical tokamak has been successfully established in 2010.
