“changing the world with high intensity lasers”

Our laboratory is conducting research to create ultrahigh energy density state, that is, high temperature × high density state with high intensity laser.

Its ultimate goal is fusion, but there are lots of interesting science and applications in the processes leading up to it. This ultrahigh energy density state occurs within a very short time of only nanosecond (billionth of a second), so wisdom and ingenuity are necessary for research.

While narrowing down various ideas, we hope to make use of it in energy production and manufacturing making under the belief of “changing the world with high intensity lasers”
