Title Dynamics of plasma-induced membrane transport and its application to drug delivery system

The final purpose of the proposed project is to search for new scintillation materials and to develop the fiber crystal growth technology for dark matter search and double beta decay experiment. This project consists of several researchers in the various fields such as crystal chemistry, crystal growth, high-energy physics who worked at not only Tohoku University, but Miyagi University of Education, University of Tokyo. To realize novel scintillator with the above properties, we grow several crystals by the micro-pulling down method and Czochralski process, and investigate their optical and scintillation properties.
