Current Research

Plasma is an ensemble of charged particles, and is a typical example of nonlinear complex system. High temperature plasmas have low dissipation, and are in a state far from thermal equilibrium. Nonlinearity becomes prominent and develops to a turbulent state. Plasma makes transitions between multiple states, and forms a structure spontaneously. High temperature plasma can be applied to power generation by nuclear fusion, but its realization depends on physical understanding and control of the plasma behavior. Wave phenomena, instability and turbulence in high temperature plasmas are being studied on the TST-2 spherical tokamak, and on larger fusion devices in Japan and abroad.
