活動報告(公募計画コース) 第169号

原子核実験加速器施設の視察および解析用先端機器制御のための最先端ソフト技術体験
岐阜大学からの報告

岐阜大学

 岐阜大学では、超巨大な原子核である中性子星内に無尽蔵と言えるほど存在すると予想される超原子核の質量を計測し、中性子星の構造や冷却機構の解明を目指しています。加速器を使ったこの超原子核実験に修士1年から参加し、修士論文のテーマとできるように研修を積み、共同研究として成長させることを目的に、ミャンマーの協定大学から7名の学生を招へいしました。これにより、ミャンマーにおける基礎科学を実験面で進展させることができると期待しています。

 岐阜大学での研修(11月16日~20日、11月27日~12月4日)
実験の基礎に関する講義の後、ミャンマーの大学では容易に目にすることができない大型検査顕微鏡に付随する先端機器と駆動ソフトに触れるとともに、顕微鏡で高速に取得した画像から超原子核を発見する解析ソフトを研修しました。研修では、岐阜大学内にある大型検査顕微鏡6台中の3台を用い、ミャンマーからの3名の本学大学院生や日本人の4名の学部生とともに、参加学生の研修を支援しました。

 11月21日には、毎年11月に開催される「ぎふサイエンスフェスティバル2015」に、7名の研修生を招待しました。この催しでは、主に岐阜市内の小学生を対象に、岐阜大学・教育学部の理科教育講座の学部4年生の9つも含めて、 50のブースが出展しました。本年は過去最高の3600人の入場者があり、研修生もさまざまな実験を楽しむことができました。

多くの実験道具を収穫

 11月24日に日本原子力開発機構を訪問し、タンデム加速器、研究用原子炉、大強度陽子加速器(J-PARC)を見学させていただきました。まず、原子力科学研究所およびJ-PARCの概要の説明を受けた後に、物質・生命科学実験施設、ニュートリノ実験施設、燃料試験施設、タンデム加速器、研究用原子炉(JRR-3)の見学をさせていただきました。最後には、核データ研究、ハドロン原子核物理研究、および重元素核化学研究の各グループの研究を紹介していただきました。研修生にとっては、すべてが初めて見るものばかりで、午前10時から午後5時まで疲れるどころか目を輝かせていました。東海駅までの送り迎えをしていただきまして、機構のご厚意にはこの場を借りてお礼申し上げます。

 26日に訪れた日本科学未来館では、ロボット(ASIMO)の実演に釘付けとなっていました。地球環境の展示にも興味を示していました。そして最後のドリームシアター、三次元に広がる太陽系から宇宙までの鑑賞は、研修生全員がはじめての経験で、興奮していました。入館料を免除していただき、この場を借りて未来館のご厚意にお礼申し上げます。

機構視察と未来館見学後の夕食会(少し疲れ気味)

 12月4日、19日間の滞在を終えてミャンマーからの学生が帰国し、さくらサイエンスプランによるプログラムは終了しました。全員無事に帰国したとの報告と共に、お礼のメール、そして日本で印象に残っていることについてのレポートも各自より送られてきました。ここにその一部をご紹介いたします。

参加者の感想

Phyu Hninさん

I went a lot of places in Japan. Among them, my impressed ones are science museum and Gifu City Culture Centre. I went to the science museum on Nov.26. There I knew how much creativity with robot. And then we can use robots instead of people .We watched Dome Theater Gaia in science museum. We can felt closer to the magnificent world that surrounds us. These video experiences will provide not only scientific information on how we are all connected to the world but also an emotional sense of that connection. We went to Gifu City Culture Centre on Nov.21.We are participated with children. Japanese children are very clever. I like this program. At that time, I knew that Japanese education foundation is very good. I have seen how much improved Technology in Japan is.

In Japan, the buildings are very large. It is very clean and neat. The relationship of Japanese people is very kind and affability. All of people are not opportunist. Japanese students are very brilliant and clever. Their lessons study at class room, desk and library. The class room and desk are bright and clean. In addition to it, all of classroom is opened. Their education conditions are improved. Japanese people are accurate at time. There are many factories in Japan. The country of Japan is very improved. It is very interesting. I got a good experience, knowledge and technologies. So, I want to stay in Japan. I am very happy.

Firstly, I arrived at Nagoya airport in Japan. I saw that the Pacific Ocean around the airport. At that time, I wondered Japan had been developed very much. I also liked it was tidy and neat everywhere. I enjoyed the living systematically and respect Japanese people because of their accurate time. The Japanese education is very good because the students in Japan study experiments by themselves. There is much experimental equipment in Gifu University. When they practiced, they make presentation. So, their thinking and creativity is improved. The science show could improve the scientific knowledge of the children. Therefore, I think that your country is developed.

What is your most impressed matter in this stay, especially? My most impressed matters in this stay are all of the matters. Especially, my most impressed matter is the tour of Science Museum. At Science Museum, I found many kinds of developed techniques and also found robots. I love robots. Finally, I have seen robots because of this exchange program. And then, I also like that I looked at the universe in the dome theater. When I entered in the dome theater, I felt as I got to the universe myself. Therefore, I always thank a lot this exchange program.

This program gave me a lot of experience and knowledge. Japanese people are very kind and friendly. And then, their education is so great. Japanese students are trying their education hard. So, I really envy of all. Their technology is developed. Everything is up-date and improved. Their culture is society. Japanese foods are so delicious and great. The main point is that their house, road, university and supermarket are very clean. Their foods are good for health. I think Japanese people are work hard every time. I have got many kind of knowledge from this program. Japan country and people are very nice. So, I wish I want to come again this country.

I think that Japanese people work too hard every day. Their scientific technology is developed. So, they can invent the advanced. Their education system is great and Japanese students are trying any time. Their culture, society and everything are improved and Japanese are friendly and frankly. Japanese food is great. It’s healthy, tastes great and is fun to eat. The main important fact is that their house, road, school, university, super market and shopping centers, etc. are always clean. Everything and everywhere are clean and safe. In Japan, I have got a lot of experience and knowledge. Japan is a very nice place, I love it.

I had importunate to go to Japan with science exchange program. This is my first visit to Japan. There were no things that I didn’t get impression in Japan. Everything can get more experiences and impressions, because there is many different from our mother country. Different traditional customs, Living standard, Lifestyles and so, are impressive for me. In Japan, I am very nice, the habits of learning and studying. The studying habits of the Japanese students can cause very impressive for me. I realized the high scanning method of Double-lambda hypernuclear events in Gifu University.
Moreover, all of my friends and me went J-PARC, Science museum with professor Nakazawa sensei. In J-PARC, as I saw the more developing research and technology, working to develop their nation, I was impressed and honored to their mind. In science museum, more and more developing science technology benefits all over the world. In this case, everything is fine and right in Japan.
As I realized not understanding things and knew the custom of their nature, I had very pleased in this exchange program. Thus, I was very thanking for the Professor Nakazawa sensei and the Japan Science and Technology Agency. I wish this science program be more and more success and well develop in Japan.
