Optical Properties of Materials
Laboratory/research office Ultimate Nano-Processing Laboratory
Our research group mainly focuses on the develepment of new functional nanodevices. To that end, we characterize the structural/electronical properties of materials at the single-atom and molecular scales, and investigate changes in those materials resulting from external stimuli such as electron beams, photo-excitation, and chemical reactions. Through such research, we aim to establish “ultimate nano-processing” toward the realization of atomic-scale functional materials and the integration of those materials into more complex devices.
