Visited Central Research Institute of Electric Power Industry. 【見学】電力中央研究所

18 Dec. 2015
After a lunch time (Turkish food) around Kamakura station; we (12 students) visited Central Research Institute of Electric Power Industry (電力中央研究所) in Yokosuka city (Kanagawa prefecture).

Since 2008, some of lab’s members have been collaborating with CRIEPI on measuring particulate matters (PM) at the exhaust of coal-based power plant.

Thanks to Noda san, Shimizu san, and Makino san for our study tour.




Joint Seminar with School of Agriculture Labs 農学府の研究室と合同セミナー

Two of our students have presented their studies at a joint seminar with Hatakeyama Lab and Matsuda Lab.

Place: FM Tama Kyuryo (Matsuda Lab)

More than four students have also visited FM Tama Kyuryo (an experimental “forest” of TUAT sites) in November 2015, for the rain water samples.

Kelvin Probe Force Microscopyを用いたエアロゾル個別粒子の帯電状態の測定
Measurement of the Electrostatic Charging State of Individual Particles in Ambient Aerosol Using Kelvin Probe Force Microscopy (Okuda, Gunji, Lenggoro)



An award from JAAST (Industry consortium) related to this study (Okuda/Gunji/Lenggoro)

Recently, the importance of electrostatic charging state to particle deposition in the human airways has been suggested. We developed a measurement method of electrostatic charging state of individual ambient aerosol particles using Kelvin probe force microscopy (KPFM). For the ambient aerosol particles, the surface potential ranged from-56.6 mV to+156.7 mV, indicating that the number of elementary charges of ambient aerosol particles analyzed in this study was more than 4.

Thermal Fluid Analysis by Numerical simulation

The emission of alkali (“light-metals”) and heavy metals in combustion processes is an important contributor to environmental load. We investigated experimentally in the laboratory the generation of particles from model exhaust gases derived from NaCl and CdCl2. An on-line gas-phase measurement system showed that the mean diameters of aerosol particles derived from the evaporation of NaCl and CdCl2 were 35 and 30 nm, respectively, when the dilution ratio of the model gas was 1:20. The value was 50 nm in two-metal co-evaporation (NaCl and CdCl2). These results may be informative for predicting the phenomena related to gas-to-particle conversion at the exit of stationary emission sources.
