The ultimate goal of our laboratory is to find a solution of energy and environmental issues from the standpoint of thermal energy utilization. Especially, we focus on energy conversion from low grade thermal energy into useful outputs, such as power, electricity, refrigeration and air-conditioning. To improve performance of the energy conversion systems and also to create new technologies for next generation energy conversion systems, we study on heat and mass transfer enhancement, improvement of heat exchangers, engineering application of new materials, and applications to systems.
