1) Development of Novel Radiation Detectors for Environmental Radiation
I investigated radiation detectors for low-concentration radioisotopes in the natural environment in research done during my master’s and doctoral studies at Osaka University. Isotopes of radon were the most interested targets. This work was done in collaboration with doctoral course exchange students from Palestine, and was reported in two journal publications. I also investigated several new particle detectors using wide band gap semiconductors in an international collaboration with Croatia. I formed good relationships with these exchange researchers, and several academic papers resulting from our collaboration will be published within the next year.
I investigated new analytical methods using ion beam probes during my master’s and doctoral studies at Osaka University. I researched new chemical composition analysis and imaging techniques using ion microbeams during a post-doctoral fellowship from 2010 to present. The experimental results appeared in several journals and international conferences. I received two academic awards for this research.
