Hiroaki Katsuragi


Welcome to HK's SPE (Statistical Physics Experiments) Lab. web site. I'm studying statistical physics by experiments. I'm also interested in geology related phenomena such as cratering, landsliding, earthquake, accretion and fragmentation, ... I believe the phenomena I’m studying must be relevant to fundamental mechanical/chemical engineering and/or soft material problems.

My main research topics are:

    Granular system (impact cratering, avalanche, wetting, stress,....)

    Gel pattern formation (without volume phase transition)

    Fragmentation (by impact and explosion)

    Rough surface (with multi-affine scaling method)
