Research Summary

Yutaka  Yamagata(D.Eng.)

It is inevitably required to devise and/or maintain variety of advanced research instruments and equipments to promote and support laboratories for wide ranges of research fields from fundamental to practical phases. The main duty of our team is to develop those instruments required by researchers, and also this duty should be conducted consequently from concept design to manufacture through detailed design and instrumentation. Our team also deals with improvement and maintenance of working scientific experimental equipments. For these purposes, we are constantly making efforts to improve our design, manufacturing and engineering capabilities for rapid services.
