Ryota Kitagawa（D1 of Hatano & Iwasaki Lab.）won the Silver Elsevier Young Scholar Award in 31st ICDCM.
It is an award presented by The International Conference on Diamond and Carbon Materials to young researchers.
I am very honored to receive this award, which is given to a limited number of people, six in total.
This research aims to realize hybrid stress imaging by combining magnetostrictive materials, which are magnetic materials sensitive to stress, and nitrogen-vacancy centers (NV centers) in diamond, which are highly sensitive magnetic field sensors. In the future, we aim to realize a micrometer-scale scale that can measure weight at the cellular level.
I am very honored to receive such an award. I would like to thank Prof. Hatano, Dr. Arai, and all the people who support me on a daily basis. Mr. Nagata, an M1 student who joined the team this year and has been conducting experiments, has also made valuable contributions.
We started working on the content of this research in earnest last summer. I have been actively working on my own ideas since the planning stage of the theme, and I am very attached to this research. I am very happy to have received the award, as I feel that it has blossomed a little.
At the same time, I realized that there is still a gap between my research and the research that won the gold award. I will continue to work hard with the feeling that I am at the starting point.
I wanted to conduct interdisciplinary research. This theme is based on the joint research of Nakagawa Laboratory, which has technology for magnetostrictive materials, and Hatano-Iwasaki Laboratory, which has technology for measuring the magnetic field of NV centers.
