Tomohiro Sasaki, a specialist in mechanical engineering and materials science from Yokohama National University, is serving as a visiting scientist in Southeastern Louisiana University’s Department of Chemistry and Physics. Sasaki will work closely with Southeastern’s physics professor Sanichiro Yoshida and student researchers on experimental research involving use of laser interferometry. Yoshida last year was awarded a patent for his approach to determining weaknesses in various materials. Sasaki, who will be at Southeastern through March 2009, will also present a series of lectures on material science and engineering, focusing on deformation and fracture of solid state materials. He will be a guest at the Southeastern Inn, the university’s former president’s resident, which is used for visiting professors and dignitaries.
