Dr. Yusuke Tsunoda

Dr. Yusuke Tsunoda from the Center for Nuclear Study has received this year’s FAIR GENCO Award for young scientists. FAIR is among the world's largest accelerator facilities and is located at the GSI Helmholtz Centre for Heavy Ion Research in Darmstadt, a suburb of Frankfurt, Germany. This award, given by the FAIR-GSI Exotic Nuclei Community (GENCO), recognizes young researchers who have made remarkable achievements in nuclear science.

Dr. Tsunoda received the Young Scientist Award for the invention of the so-called T-Plot method, which visualizes the results of numerical calculation. The T-Plot method is a powerful technique for grasping the essence of complex multi-body quantum systems like atomic nuclei. When Dr. Tsunoda was a graduate student at the University of Tokyo’s Graduate School of Science, he proposed the T-plot method and succeeded in assigning the results of nuclear structure calculation by the Monte Carlo shell model to different states and shapes of atomic nuclei. The T-Plot method is attracting attention as a key to interpret experimental results in research of exotic nuclei.
