Automotive Field

Application: Automotive Field

・ The failure behavior of automotive body materials
・ The combustion process in engines
・ The injection process in fuel injection equipment

In order to develop high-output, high-efficiency automobile engines, detailed observations and analyses of the structural components of the engine are required. This includes the process of fuel injection by fuel injection equipment (injectors), and the process of fuel ignition by spark plugs.
In addition, the development of automobile bodies utilizing new materials such as lightweight and very strong carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP) is actively being pursued. However, in developing such new materials, it is necessary to observe and analyze the deformation and failure behavior of materials when they undergo an impact.
In recent years, the deformation behavior of materials recorded using high-speed cameras has been analyzed using image analysis software. Dynamic analyses of the 2D or 3D strain distributions in the material are also performed.
In addition, high-speed cameras are used to observe the engine combustion process and the behavior of airbags.

Laser Ablation Film Forming Apparatus

If the laser pulse is irradiated to a target substance, a substance surface stripped (ablation), particles with a light-emitting called plume will pop out. The laser ablation film forming apparatus utilizes this phenomenon, a substrate to be formed a film is arranged opposite to the target substance, and a film by depositing the particles generated by abrasion on the substrate. The image is obtained by observing the generation and disappearance process of the plume with the laser pulses emitted horizontally from the left.

Applications: Advanced Medical Equipment Fields

・ The drug release process in drug delivery systems
・ The generation and disappearance process of microbubbles, which are utilized for sterilization and ultrasound diagnosis

In medical treatment and biotechnology fields, research is advancing using the dynamics of so-called microbubbles, microscopic bubbles on the order of 1 to 100 microns.
When microbubbles in a fluid are exposed to ultrasonic waves, they expand, contract, and then disappear, a process that generates a localized, high-speed flow referred to as a microjet. Research is being performed regarding the use of this phenomenon to open pores in cells so as to introduce genes and pharmaceutical agents directly into cells.
Microbubbles are extremely minute, so the process of expansion, contraction, and destruction occurs at very high speeds. Accordingly, a high-sensitivity, high-speed camera is required to analyze this behavior.
In addition, high-speed cameras are used to observe the behavior of ultrasonic waves from ultrasonic generators.

The Destruction Process of Microbubbles in Proximity to Cancer Cells Using Ultrasonic Waves

Research is advancing into a drug delivery system in which microcapsules containing pharmaceutical agents and microbubbles are introduced in proximity to cancer cells. Exposure to ultrasonic waves is used to rupture the capsules, and the pharmaceutical agents are then guided into the cancer cells. The images illustrate the expansion, contraction, and destruction of microbubbles in proximity to cancer cells, and the mechanical impact of this process on the cells.
