The AKARI (ASTRO-F) satellite mission was launched on 2006 February 22, and carried out a series of infrared photometric surveys in the near- (NIR), mid-  (MIR) and far-infrared (FIR) passbands until the satellite termination in 2011.  During its operation, AKARI  performed deep survey of the north ecliptic pole in NIR and MIR passbands, survey of south ecliptic pole in FIR and all-sky survey in MIR and FIR.
Results obtained by the AKARI satellite contributed a lot to our understanding of the dust astrophyscis and galaxy evolution. Currently AKARI provides one of the most complete and deep infrared survey data. The NCBJ group is involved in the AKARI project from the very beginning. Main fields of scientific interest of our group in the AKARI project are focused on galaxy evolution physics, observational cosmology and machine learning application.
