Theoretical and experimental research for plasma turbulence is done. The basic physics research in thermonuclear fusion plasmas, the confinement physics (e.g. the self-organization mechanisms in nonlinear and non-equilibrium systems) is the current topic. Research on nonlinear dynamics of waves and fluctuations is also made, which includes the topics on solitons and chaos as well as on turbulence.

Main research topics

  1. Transport and dissipative structure in fusion plasmas.

  2. Confinement theory for tokamak plasmas.

  3. Nonlinear dynamics theory ; bifurcation and self-generated oscillations.

  4. Turbulence measurement in linear plasmas.

  5. Plasma burning physics.

  6. Self-sustained nonlinear turbulence.
