Project Associate Professor Matsumoto received the 2020 Chiba University Advanced Science Award, which is given to young researchers who have demonstrated high research ability, such as budding research or research with an original perspective, in order to contribute to the dissemination of highly original science and technology.
Associate Professor Hotta received the Outstanding Achievement Award for HPCI Research Proposals in the category of Physics, Particle Science, and Astronomy for the proposal "Exploration of thermal convection and magnetic field activity in low-mass stars (proposal number: hp190070)" at the 7th HPCI Research Announcement Meeting.
ICEHAP's website has been relaunched.
From October 2020, the Center will be reorganized as an independent, university-wide center from the Institute of Science. It will promote research and education activities as Chiba University's flagship research center, and operate as a research organization open to the global research community.
A research group led by Yosuke Matsumoto, project associate professor at our center, and Takanobu Amano, associate professor at the Graduate School of the University of Tokyo, has clarified the mechanism of the production of "seed" particles (the "first step"), which has been the greatest challenge in the acceleration of high-energy cosmic-ray electrons, and published their results in Physical Review Letters.
