Non-accelerator experimental particle physics
Dark matter search experiment and Solar axion search experiment
Our major research activity includes following two non-accelerator particle physics experiments aiming at elucidation of still unresolved problems of this field. The one is a search for particle dark matter of the universe. The other is an experiment using a superconducting magnet to detect a light neutral particle called the axion considered to be produced in the solar core, propagating through the space and falling onto the earth. Graduate school applicants for the group are required to have enthusiasm and appropriate skill for the experimental technique as well as for the physics.
