Research Field

Planetary airglow

Current Research

I study the planetary atmospheres, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, as well as the Earth. I am now developing telescoles which will be boarded on Planetary orbiters. My newly developed instrument has a capability to collect EUV photons from the planets with a high efficiency.
