Research Activities

All NIFS researchers are members of the Department of Helical Plasma Research. This department is divided by subject into seven subordinate divisions. Each researcher belongs to one of these divisions according to his or her specialization. Below is an example of research activities carried out in each division.


Domestic Collaboration Research Programs

In order to satisfy the broad needs for advancing the latest research, NIFS prepares three forms of research collaboration. These joint use and joint research activities are developed by accepting research proposals from researchers at domestic universities and research institutes each year.

NIFS collaboration research activities are always reviewed and improved so as to be compatible with the latest trends in research by changing the categories of collaboration. In FY2011, the categories were revised and a new category was introduced. The figures above show the number of accepted collaboration topics in each category since the introduction of this program, which indicates a year-by-year increase.
