Outline Activities
One of main research fields is materials science, especially on the behavior of hydrogen isotopes dissolved in energy related materials (metals, alloys and ceramics).
Diffusion, thermomigration and electromigration of hydrogen isotopes in materials have been studied.

Lectures, experiments, exercises and seminars for materials sciences and solid state physics have been assigned.
