Laboratory for Unified Quantum Devices
Three research groups in quest of the microscopic world of quantum mechanics, theoretical physics, quantum optics, hyperfine microfabrication, had met under the southern breeze, and the Laboratory of Unified Quantum Devices was born at the Research Institute of Kochi University of Technology.
Pulling out the seeds with unexpected shine of new technology from the deep well of mysterious quantum world. Rowing out to the dangerous quantum blue ocean leaving the safe sea frequented by giant ships: That is what we aim at UQD Lab.
Recent years have observed the emergence of the technologies to accurately produce nano-size microstructures, and also their potential usage for the next-generation device that directly control the motions of photons and electrons. We conduct the research of the "unified quantum devices" that combine plural quantum nano-structures within region of the size below the wavelength of electron and photon waves. We focus upon the following three subjects, in order to explore the highly functional quantum devices, both from theoretical and experimental perspectives:
- The exploration of novel and exotic quantum phenomena in unified quantum device based on the quantum graph theory
- The experimental realization of unified quantum devices with the mist-CVD technique, and the evaluation of their electronic properties
- The evaluation of the optical properties of unified quantum devices with the use of near-field light technique, and the exploration of their application to the photonic quantum devices
With these researches, we intend to build a center of excellence in the research of quantum theories and experiments at Kochi University of Technology.
