Non-contact electromagnetic acoustic transducer that detects defects smaller than 0.1mm

Prof. Masahiko HIRAO, Assoc.Prof. Hirotsugu OGI, Assis.Prof. Nobutomo NAKAMURA

In nuclear power plants and chemical plants, stainless steel pipes are used because of its high tolerance to corrosion.  However, small cracks can appear on inner surface near welded regions, so called stress corrosion cracking.  Because crack growth finally causes rupture of pipes, detect...

Sulfur hydride records high Tc – Reveal the crystal structure

Shimizu laboratory

Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) is harmful gas for human, but may play an important role to study of superconductor. A German group reported the superconductivity at 203 K (-70℃) (Tc) in compressed hydrogen sulfide at 1,500,000 atmospheres. The Tc is higher than that of copper oxide superconductor (cuprate...

Interaction-component analysis of cosolvent effect on protein structure

Professor Nobuyuki Matubayasi, Associate Professor Kan Kim, Assistant Professor Ryosuke Ishizuka

A flexible solute molecule such as protein changes its structure in response to the surrounding environment. A scheme to change the solvent environment is addition of a cosolvent, and the denaturation of protein by urea is indeed a notable example of modifying the solute structure by (mixed) solvent...

Turbulent Mixing

Prof. Susumu Goto, Associate Prof. Takao Yoshinaga, Assistant Prof. Yosuke Watanabe

For mixing sugar and coffee in a cup, it is much more efficient to stir the coffee by a spoon than just waiting. This is because the advection induced by the flow dominates molecular diffusion of sugar. Although, as is obvious from this example, flows, especially turbulent flows, produce strong mixi...
