Graduate School of Science and Engineering, Ehime University
Research fields and staffs


Physics has been the basis of the development of modern science and technology. This course covers the research areas of various scales, from elementary particles to the whole universe and from fundamentals to applications. We have active collaboration with researchers of other institutes. It consists of two subcourses, fundamental physics course and condensed matter and plasma physics course.

Condensed Matter and Plasma Physics

Various phenomena concerning condensed matters are studied theoretically and experimentally. Special interests are taken in ⑴ dynamical theory of phase transition in nonequilibrium open systems, ⑵ theoretical study of self-assemblies in solution, ⑶ theoretical study of strongly correlated electron systems, ⑷ experimental studies of magnetic and optical materials, and ⑸ plasma physics in liquid.
