    Theoretical Nano Materials Science Area

    Associate Professor DIÑO Wilson Agerico Tan
    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.

    Nano Physics Area

    Professor SUGAWARA Yasuhiro   Associate Professor LI Yanjun   Assistant Professor NAITOH Yoshitaka
    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.

    Nanomaterial Area

    Professor KOBAYASHI Yoshihiro   Assistant Professor NEGISHI Ryota
    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.

    Nanophotonics Area

    Professor KAWATA Satoshi   Associate Professor FUJITA Katsumasa   Assistant Professor TAGUCHI Atsushi
    Kawata-Fujita group is creating a science and technology of “nanophotonics” - a laser technology capable of measuring, manipulating, and fabricating matters in the nano-scale world using light.

    Operations Research Area[Graduate School of Information Science and Technology]

    Professor FUJISAKI Yasumasa   Associate Professor OKUHARA Koji   Assistant Professor WADA Takayuki
    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.

    Nonlinear Systems, Modeling and Optimization Area[Graduate School of Information Science and Technology]

    Professor YAGI Atsushi   Associate Professor YAMAMOTO Yoshitaka   Assistant Professor HATANAKA Toshiharu
    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.

    Information Photonics Area[Graduate School of Information Science and Technology]

    Division of Architecture for Intelligence[Institute of Scientific and Industrial Research]

    Professor NUMAO Masayuki   Associate Professor FUKUI Ken-ichi
    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.
