The skeleton of fluid turbulence

— approach by unstable periodic motion to the problem of turbulence —

Professor Genta Kawahara

The states of fluid motion are generally classified into laminar and turbulent flow. The turbulent flow exhibits spatiotemporally chaotic behaviour and its details repeat neither in space nor in time. Most of fluid motion seen in daily life, such as water flowing out of a fully-turned-on tap and v...

Chemical Approach to Life Science

Chemical Synthesis of Damaged DNA and Its Application to DNA Repair Studies

Professor: Shigenori Iwai, Associate Professor: Isao Kuraoka, Assistant Professor: Junpei Yamamoto

   DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) is a biopolymer that contains and transfers genetic information, and its function depends on the formation of the base pairs between adenine and thymine and between guanine and cytosine. The chemical structure of DNA is sometimes altered by chemical reactions. Th...

New Quantum Critical Phenomena

Development of a Theory of Critical Valence Fluctuations

Professor Kazumasa Miyake, Associate Professor Shinji Watanabe,

Quantum critical phenomena are characterized by anomalous temperature dependence of a series of physical quantities, such as susceptibility, resistivity, specific heat and so on, and arise near the critical point (where the long range order, such as magnetism, disappears) at zero temperature by tuni...

Novel enhancement of interaction between light and matter in confined electron system

- Wave-wave coupling between classical light and quantum mechanical excitation greatly enhances the

Professor Tadashi Itoh, Associate Professor Masaaki Ashida, Guest Assistant Professor Masayoshi Ichi

In physics, the light wave and the electronic excitation wave have been described in hierarchically different regimes,i.e., the macroscopic (classical) and the microscopic (quantum mechanical) regimes. In this conventional description, no spatial interplay between these waves appears. However, in th...
