Study of Superconducting Magnet Energy Storage to Activate Uses of Renewable Energy


In order to increase the uses of renewable energies, it is necessary to leveling the temporal power variation of renewable energy. We, therefore, proposed a Superconducting Magnet Energy Storage with a geodesic orbit which is stable for mechanical perturbations.

Aim to open a new interdisciplinary between modern geometry and materials science


We first observed the geometric curvature effects on electronic properties, which have been predicted theoretically in 1950s, using one-dimensional metallic nanocarbon with a periodic uneven curved structure. This result is expected to open a new paradigm between modern geometry and materials science.
