This department studies novel optical, electronic, and spin devices that support the highly-sophisticated information society in the 21st century. Focusing on semiconductor devices, our research fields cover quantum information processing using the quantum mechanical nature of electron spins and photons, and the development of multifunctioned optical, electrical and spin materials and its application to spintronic devices. We study the growth and characterization of high quality materials and perform precise quantum transport measurements. Aim of our research is the realization of novel phenomena emerging in quantum nano-structures that can control the photon, electron and spin degrees of freedom.
