Brief Introduction of Dr. Hiroshi Uechi

Hiroshi Uechi, Ph.D.  He obtained his doctoral degree in nuclear physics (theoretical nuclear physics) from Indiana University, USA, under the guidance of Professor Brian D. Serot who founded the nuclear field theory, quantum hadrodynamics (QHD) with Professor John D. Walecka. Currently, he is a professor at Osaka Gakuin University and has been working on nuclear many-body theory and nuclear astrophysics.

He has been investigating self-consistent QHD hadronic approximations in terms of Landau’s Fermi-liquid theory and density functional theory (DFT) while applying QHD nonlinear and chiral effective models to neutron star calculations. He is working on nonlinear mean-field and chiral mean-field method for nuclear matter, self-consistent approximation method beyond mean-field approximations.

Welcome Message

It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the joint conference of Annual Conference on Engineering and Applied Science, International Conference on Life Science and Biological Engineering, and Annual Conference on Management and Social Science in Osaka, Japan, which promotes exchanges of information, communications and collaborations among researchers worldwide.  The 21st century is the age of atomic and molecular science, and the age of exploration to Mars and possibly to other planets using spacecraft technology.  We gradually come to understand the earth as the unique spacecraft in the universe, and we need collaborations not only from scientists but also people with all expertise in order to resolve problems and sustain our societies and ecological systems, energy resources, etc.. The international conferences such as ACEAT, LSBE and ACMASS would help mutual understandings and play more important and valuable roles in due course.  Above all, we would like to welcome all of you to the above conferences and also hope that every participant will enjoy cultural explorations in Japan.

Topic: Nanostructured Metal Oxide Materials for Energy Storage

Abstract:

With the rapid development of electronic technology, wearable and flexible devices such as roll-up displays, biomedical sensors, and wearable devices, have drawn considerable attention. Developing high energy density flexible supercapacitors (FSCs) hold the promise to provide a safe, fast charge/discharge rate, and long-life flexible energy storage devices. To date, electrodes of high-performance FSCs are mainly composed of carbonaceous materials such as carbon nanotube (CNT), graphene and CNT/graphene hybrid due to their distinct properties of high conductivity and mechanical flexibility. However, the CNT/graphene-based electric double-layer capacitor possesses low specific capacitance due to its intrinsic double-layer charge storage mechanism, which relies on the electrostatic attraction of electrolyte ions and charges at the electrode surface. Accordingly, hybridizing pseudocapacitive metal oxide materials with carbon-based materials such as CNT and graphene has become an appealing strategy in increasing the specific capacitance and energy density of film electrodes. In this talk, the speaker will present his recent work in the development and application of nanostructured metal oxide electrode for high-performance flexible supercapacitors. Several strategies, including the morphology control, core/shell architecture, and defect engineering, will be discussed to improve the electron transports, electrolyte ions diffusion kinetics, and electrical conductivity of metal oxide electrodes.

Topic: Reviving the engineers in our genes

Abstract

It can be said that the history of mankind is the history of engineering.  Archaeology tells us that Homo habilis, the oldest known human species who had the ability to create and use tools more than 2 million years ago also developed a brain double the size of its predecessor who had started walking on two legs another million years before.  Evolutionary Psychology also tells us that engineering started when evolution shaped what we call the engineering mind in our ancestors.  Urge theory of Toda (1981) postulated that human emotions evolved to survive in natural environments in which our ancestors lived during most of the human history.  An urge is a set of emotion and action that, upon encountering a certain type of situations, ‘urges’ us to do certain actions that optimize our chance of survival in those situations.   Let us examine two types of urges that are relevant for the history of engineering.
