Nishina center.

The theoretical physics laboratory of Riken, to which I belong to, is a part of Nishina accelerator center. The center has a huge accelerator which is specialized for “RIBF”, RI beam factory, with a world-“strongest” superconducting ring cyclotron. You can find movies on how isotopes are accelerated in the beam lines, at the webpage of the Nishina center. My research is on superstring theory but I am currently applying string theory technique to nuclear physics, so this Nishina center is a perfect place for me to get in touch with real nuclear experiments.

Last week, hosted by the director of Nishina center, we had a big party, with alcohol drinks and cakes. This was a get-together party, which the director aimed to have all of the center members to know each other. I eventually enjoyed this party since, as the director aimed, I have met one person who is a visiting experimentalist working in Italy. Her experiments sound very interesting to me, and in fact quite much related to my recent work on strange physics. We talked at the party, and we made a promise that we would get together sometime soon. However, to tell you the truth, I haven’t expected much on this promise, as this was at a party and we have met just for the first time, and I am just a string theorist who should look apparently “different” from nuclear experimentalists. However, on the next day, in the morning, she came to my room! — and we had a good discussion. It was amazing to me that, just at this get-together party, I happend to see an interesting person and could talk really on my project, although she came from the other side of the globe. I thank Nishina center, and the director En’yo.

I hope to report on the progress of my research, on the application of superstring theory to nuclear physics, here. As for my current project, my Mathematica says “I need more memory”…. well, I’ll try to write a new and beautiful code which may cost less memory, hopefully.
