Summary My research interest lies in temperature measurement technology and I am engaged in research into magnetic temperature sensors. In my research I use a temperature sensitive ferrite in which the magnetic properties change according to temperature as a temperature sensing element. In the field of thermal control, another research interest of mine, I am involved in joint research with the Graduate School of Agriculture to develop an engineering temperature control system containing a microscale component based on the theory of skunk cabbage-type temperature control (cellular level control through both temperature sensing and heat generation). Skunk cabbage (Symplocarpus foetidus), which is used in our research, is a homeothermic plant that grows naturally in Iwate Prefecture and other cold areas. The plant can maintain its body temperature at around 20°C regardless of a change in its surrounding temperature, even when it falls below zero.
