The main research interest in the Nakagawa group is to use acoustic wave as a tool to modulate the living body and cells. Based on acoustic engineering and optical engineering, we have proposed and demonstrated unique acoustic wave generators and wave modulators. We are also developing novel ultrafast imaging methods to reveal acoustic interactions with cells and tissues.
Development of photoacoustic techniques for treatment and diagnosis
Visualization of acoustic interactions with cells and tissues
Study on cellular response to fast mechanical stimulation
Development of the world’s fastest camera
Open new avenues with innovative imaging technologies
