Research area


1) The origin and the formation of our solar system.
2) The evolution of the Earth and planets.
3) The magnetic properties of magnetic & weak magnetic planetary materials.
4) The studies on the laboratory/environmental electromagnetic phenomena.
5) Development of the technique/instrument for a new frontier of planetary science


As far as we know, the planet Earth is a unique environment (especially for life). When and how were the Earth and other planets formed in the entire universe?

To decipher the history of the Earth, we focus on the origin, evolution and current environment of our solar system based on various experimental approaches. Mainly, we carry out precise isotopic analyses from hydrogen to uranium in Apollo samples, Martian meteorites, other various meteorites and circum-stellar dusts. We also conduct the studies on the organic matter in planetary materials. For better understanding of the magnetic structure of the primordial solar nebula, the magnetic properties of magnetic & weak magnetic planetary materials are examined. We are also investigating electron spin resonance and the relation between environmental electromagnetic field and natural phenomena.
