More than 99% of the universe is in the fourth state of matter, i.e. "plasma". The plasma, which consists of almost equal numbers of electrons and ions with thermal motion, is quite interesting in the field of science The plasma has two contradictory features originating from collisionless and fluid behaviors. It is of crucial importance to understand fundamental plasma properties in order to promote advanced electronics, to clarify space environment around the earth, and to succeed in the controlled thermonuclear fusion.

Our laboratory is devoted to establishment of scientific and engineering bases necessary for various kinds of plasma applications in addition to understanding fundamental plasma behaviors. We have made a variety of experiments on new methods of plasma production and control, plasma nonlinear phenomena, control of plasma potential structure, including computer simulations. We have also started a new project of fullerene plasma and its application to material science.
