Research Strategy and Theme in Kubo Laboratory

Pioneering@Multi-Physics and Multi-Scale Computational Science Simulation

  In order to solve the energy and environmental problems, to realize the safe and secure society, and to create new industry and market in the world, the development of the super-precise and super-miniaturized system and the high-functional and high-performance materials is strongly required in a variety of research fields such as fuel cell, solar cell, clean energy, micromachine, tribology, electric car, aerospace instrument, power plant, hydrogen station, electronics, etc.
  Especially, the recent system, process, and material technologies constitute of multi-physics phenomena including chemical reaction, friction, impact, stress, fluid, photon, electron, heat, electric and magnetic fields etc. and then the chemical reaction, structure, fluid, and others on atomic-scale strongly influences the system performance and property on macro-scale. However, the traditional simulation methods in the mechanical engineering fields such as fluid mechanics, finite element, finite volume, and other methods cannot clarify the multi-physics phenomena including the chemical reactions on electronic- and atomic-scale.
  Therefore, Kubo laboratory is developing new multi-physics and multi-scale computational simulation technology based on first-principles molecular dynamics for pioneering next-generation system, process, and material design and development in the mechanical engineering fields.
  Furthermore, Kubo laboratory applies the above originally developed simulation technology to a wide variety of research themes as follows and aims to realize the high-level and high-accuracy system, process, and material design.

  • Tribology Simulation for Aerospace and Automotive Systems
  • Fuel Cell Simulation, Hydrogen Production and Storage Simulation
  • Micromachine and MEMS Simulation
  • Solar Cell and Secondary Battery Simulation
  • Silicon and Diamond Semiconductor Device Simulation
  • Plasma Display and Flexible Display Simulation
  • Oxide Electronics, Light and Laser Emitting Diode Simulation
  • Ultraprecision Machining, Processing, and Fabrication Process Simulation
  • Stress Corrosion Cracking and Hydrogen Assisted Cracking Simulation for Power Plant
  • Photocatalysis and Environmental Catalysis Simulation

   Moreover, Kubo laboratory expands the above simulation outcomes to solving the energy and environmental problems, to realizing the safe and secure society, and to creating new industry and market.
