Associate Professor Hiroshi Tanabe received the Young Researcher Award (U40 Award) at the 5th Asia Pacific Conference on Plasma Physics of the Division of Plasma Physics, Association of Asia-Pacific Physical Societies. The reason for the award is “For unique experimental contribution to advanced imaging diagnostics, laboratory experiment of magnetic reconnection and its application to fusion plasma heating”.
This is a practical application of enormous ion heating obtained when magnetic lines of magnetic force are connected in plasma (magnetic reconnection phenomenon) and its application, and a technology for tomography of the ion heating by fusing Doppler measurement and tomography measurement. This is because it was highly evaluated. Currently, in cooperation with a fusion venture in the United Kingdom, we are developing a new technology that uses this high-power heating to heat the tokamak plasma to an ultra-high temperature plasma of over 100 million degrees Celsius and ignite it by fusion.
