Activities The present research areas of RIAM encompass a wide range of experimental and theoretical fields from micro mechanical phenomena on an atomic
scale, to macro mechanical phenomena on a global scale. In addition to individual research at the divisions and centers of the institute, two large research projects have been organized in
interdisciplinary research areas: the ocean
atmosphere science and engineering research
project and the fundamental fusion research project utilizing a spherical tokamak “QUEST” which is now under construction. The aim of the QUEST Project is to investigate both long duration current drive of a spherical tokamak plasma and plasmawall interaction with advanced wall control.
RIAM academic staff also play an important role
in education through participating in departments of the Interdisciplinary Graduate School of
Engineering Sciences (Molecularand Material
Sciences, Advanced Energy Engineering Science,
and Earth System Science and Technology) and the Graduate School of Engineering (Aeronautics and Astronautics).
