Research outline

  • We are working on basic and applied science of nano materials from a viewpoint of optics and material science. Our research aims at exploring new physical and chemical phenomena leading to applications. Our current interest is in optical properties of carbon nanotubes, graphene related materials, and layered transition metal dichalcogenides.
