This time, I would like to introduce the laboratory of Osaki Laboratory.
Suddenly, what do you think the moment you hear the word “superconductivity”? First of all, you probably think of “Are” of a certain railway company. ?
Certainly, the major applications at present are the above-mentioned high-speed railways, and MRI in the medical field is another example.
In recent years, however, applications in various fields such as power transmission cables, offshore wind power generators, and even electric propulsion airliners are expected. Indeed, the possibilities of infinite applications are expanding to “land, sea, and sky”!
From the viewpoint of “how to apply superconducting materials”, Osaki Laboratory has been conducting research on superconducting devices and systems, and research on high-performance devices based on electromagnetic phenomena. Recent research topics include
1) Analysis of superconducting DC feeding cable system to be introduced into DC feeding railway
2) Electromagnetic design of superconducting motor for electric propulsion airliner
3) Electromagnetic design of embedded magnet type synchronous motor using high temperature superconductor
4) Development of super-low-loss superconducting bearings to be mounted on satellites
5) 3D modeling of coils for superconducting current limiters
6) Measurement of loss characteristics of magnetic materials in extremely low temperature
And so on.
In each case, he has made presentations at conferences related to superconductivity and electrical equipment held in Japan and overseas, and has also submitted papers to Cryogenics and IEEE Trans. Appl. Supercond.
While conducting the above research activities, cherry blossom viewing, welcome party for newcomers, OB party (once every two years), May festival exhibition at the University of Tokyo, summer lab trips (Hokkaido, Okinawa, Hyogo, etc.), autumn leaves picking, This laboratory has many unexpected (?) Events such as public exhibition at Kashiwa campus, year-end party, follow-up party, sweet buffet expedition to a certain hotel in Tokyo, and snowboard trip.
Recently, we have been putting up demonstration demonstrations so that many people can know the fun of superconductivity. In particular, at the Kashiwa Open to the Public last year and at the May Festival this year, the Raspberry Pi was used to demonstrate the superconducting magnetically levitated radio controlled mobile phone with superconductors and permanent magnets, which was very popular with visitors.
Also, this year’s lab trip to Hachijojima in August (I can’t wait for summer …)!
In this way, I would like to thank the Osaki Laboratory, who has been active in various (?) Research activities in the future! !
