Outline

Using laser diagnostic techniques and molecular sensors, we study complicated phenomena of micro- and macro-scale flows appearing in various flow devices, for example, MEMS devices, air-breathing engines, and so on. We also develop the actuators for active flow control.

Research Themes

- Study on phenomena peculiar to compressible internal microflows
- Development of an oscillatory microjet actuator
- Study on active flow control using actuators
- Development of the pressure-sensitive paint technique for measurement of high-speed flows
