An atomic nucleus made up with protons and neutrons constructs an atom with electrons. Even though it’s a tiny object, an atomic nucleus owns most of the mass of an atom and it confines enormous energy inside. It shows a rich variety of structures and reaction processes to be theoretically and experimentally investigated.
In these decades, “exotic” nuclei can be accessed by the modern experimental facilities. And the research field of nuclear physics is rapidly expanding. Nowadays, nuclear physicists are able to reproduce the early universe via high energy heavy ion collisions and studying baryon many-body problems by the production of unstable nuclei and hypernuclei.
Our laboratory focuses on the theoretical study of nuclear many-body problems. We research “Nuclear Structure & Reactions” and “Nucleosythesis” from a viewpoint of quantum few-body physics. In addition, we also focus on the quantum matter aspects by investigating “Baryon Many-body Systems” and “Baryon Matters”.
