To find universality, understand the physical mechanism behind natural phenomena and the emergence of function, we conduct research and education in theoretical condensed matter physics, supported by cutting edge experimental techniques. We focus on dynamical processes and related properties at Surfaces and Interfaces of materials, size and complexity ranging from the nano-scale to biological processes. We also develop novel and practical techniques, whenever the need arises, and pro-actively make the resulting know-how available for immediate industrial implementation.
Our research focuses on novel surface and interface physics, catalytic material properties and dynamics leading to future development of nanoscience and nanotechnology employing advanced nanoprobe technology such as non-contact atomic force microscope. It covers a broad range of subjects including atom/molecule manipulation, nano-phase materials, and surface nano-magnetism.
Nanomaterials, such as carbon nanotube (CNT) and graphene, have attracted considerable attention because of their unique and practically useful physical properties completely different from “bulk” materials. Our laboratory promotes the research to create novel functionalities from the nanomaterials by manipulating their structures and to apply them to future nanoelectronics. Our fabrication processes utilize originally designed apparatus such as multi-temperature zone CVD and solar furnace for ultrahigh temperature process, and are constructed by combination of top-down and self-organized bottom-up approaches, based on fundamental understanding of atomic processes on surfaces.

We study photonics of metal nanostructures: i.e. plasmonics, especially for plasmonic waveguide, plasmonic integrated circuit, active plasmonics by using NEMS technology and thermal plasmonics etc. We especially focus to the physics of superfocusing effect of surface plasmon polariton (SPP), coupled system of quantum dot and plasmonic waveguide, thermal emitter by metasurface, optical antenna and plasmon induced transparency as well as applications to various photonic devices.

We are studying applied mathematics for decision making and control and its applications for engineering and social science. Our aim is to establish that mathematical approaches for decision making and control, for example, soft computing and robust optimization, are fundamental methodologies or tools on engineering and social science.

The mathematical study on nonlinear phenomena is one of the main subjects in the modern mathematical science. New phenomena called self-organization or complex system attract people’s attentions, but these phenomena contain essentially nonlinearity and are described by nonlinear problems. Our laboratory intends to develop new methods for treating and analyzing the various nonlinear mathematical problems presented from the real world. In addition, we intend also to pay attentions for collaborating with the field workers.
In contrast to natural science unraveling the principles and the laws of the nature, science and technologies treating man-made artificial systems become important. Information science is nothing but the key academic field and various approaches are advancing. Aiming at fusion of natual and information sciences, this laboratory proceeds research and education focussing on "Information Photonics", which is an information technology based on optics and photonics.
We focus on education and reseach on systemization and its application in various areas by mathematical programming, data analysis. Our research topics include (i) modelling of activites in industries, phenomena in social and natural sciences, (ii) system analysis based on uncertainty science, and (iii) multicriteria data analysis for system evaluation.
We carry out research on nano-biophotonics, a new research field that spans the fields of nanotechnology, biology, and photonics. We develop techniques to observe living cells and biomolecules with an ultra-high spatial-resolution and sensitivity by utilizing nanotechnology, vibrational spectroscopy, and non-linear photonics.
As Information Technology spreads out, people are now beginning to feel stressed, and tend to be disturbed by flood of information such as spam mails. Since these are due to lack of flexibility of current computer systems and their interfaces, we propose to develop an adaptive computer that learns from its environment. Psychological experiments and advanced machine learning technologies enable us to develop a highly adaptive user-friendly interface to information systems.
