Osaka Convention】Keynote Speech! Prof. Shinsuke Fujioka, Institute of Laser Science, Osaka University "Ultimate Energy Generated by Laser Fusion Reaction - Breaking away from dependence on fossil fuels2022.05.26
We are pleased to announce that Dr. Shinsuke Fujioka, Professor, Department of High Energy Density Science, Laser Science Institute, Osaka University, will be the keynote speaker at the Society of Hyperdifferent Fields Conference Osaka 2022 (Saturday, August 27, 2022), hosted by RIVANES. He will speak on the topic of "Ultimate Energy Generated by Laser Fusion Reactions - Breaking Free from Dependence on Fossil Fuels.
Conference Theme: "Collision Point" of Knowledge to Create Change
Date: Saturday, August 27, 2022, 9:30-19:00
Laser fusion" has been in the limelight since August 2021, when a world record for energy generated was achieved at the world's largest laser fusion research facility, NIF in the U.S. The reaction, in which hydrogen is fused to helium, releases enormous amounts of energy. Fuel pellets are irradiated with a large number of powerful lasers, compressed (imploded) to an ultra-high density by the pressure of plasma generated on the surface, and ignited and burned in a nuclear fusion reaction by the high-temperature plasma formed at the center. Dr. Fujioka of Osaka University's Institute for Laser Science, who is leading this research in Japan, will talk about his own encounters with fusion research and the results of his research to date, as well as the path toward the realization of laser fusion energy.

Mr. Shinsuke Fujioka
Professor, Division of High Energy Density Science, Institute for Laser Science, Osaka University
He received his Ph.D. in Engineering from Osaka University in 2005 and has been a professor at the Institute of Laser Science, Osaka University since 2015. He has been a visiting professor at the National Institute for Fusion Science and a visiting scientist at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, USA. He specializes in plasma science using power lasers. He received the Young Scientists' Prize of the Commendation for Science and Technology by the Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (2011) for his research on the development of laser-based semiconductor manufacturing technology and laboratory astronomy, and the Technological Progress Award of the Plasma and Fusion Society (2017) for his success in generating the strongest magnetic field on earth using a laser, and for demonstrating a highly efficient laser fusion method using a strong magnetic field. He was awarded the Edouard Fabre Prize (2019) and the PPCF Dendy Europe-Asia Pacific Award (2021) for the demonstration of a highly efficient laser fusion system based on high magnetic fields. His hobbies are cooking and eating.
