Research Summary

Hideki  Ueno(D.Sci.)

Atomic nuclei are substances governed by the nuclear forces, and are thus separated from atoms or other matter in the higher hierarchy, governed by electromagnetic interactions. However, nuclei interacts each other with the external objectives through hyperfine interactions owing to the nuclear spin accompanied with electromagnetic properties. Utilizing the characteristic of this interaction, the research group investigates the properties of nuclei and develops methods to manipulate nuclear spin, through the response of external substances, or conversely investigates the properties of external substances using nuclei as microscopic probes. For this purpose, the group has been developing new experimental techniques based on various nuclear spectroscopic methods, aiming at extending such technologies to boundary research fields of nuclear physics such as fundamental physics and materials science.
