An introduction to faculty staff members and laboratories in the Optics and Lasers.
Note: Information on the laboratories is current as of the 2020 academic year. There may be changes to this information in the 2021 academic year.
- Laser Engineering Laboratory
We are actively conducting research related to laser and electrical energy control, for example, development of new lasers, new functional materials by laser treatment, laser peening, and development of fast high-voltage switch using power semiconductors.
- Applied Laser Engineering Laboratory
Applied Laser Engineering Laser Surgery and Medicine Laser Safety
This laboratory has a wide variety of laser equipment, as well as analyzers and observation systems. We conduct experiments on the use of lasers to cut wood, bone, and meat. We are also doing R&D on practical applications of lasers in the medical and healthcare fields as well as in industry.
- Fiber Optics Laboratory
Optical Fibers, Fiber Lasers, Laser Engineering
This lab does research on the fundamentals and potential applications of light, revolving not only around optical communications, but also the development of new lasers that use optical fibers. We also promote development of new optical technologies and enjoy discovering previously unknown phenomena involving light.
- Associate Professor
- Laboratory for Dynamic Living Systems
Biomolecules are nanometer-sized molecular machines working in living cells. Our research goal is to elucidate the operating principle how biological molecular machines work efficiently in collaboration with water molecules.
- Photonics Engineering Laboratory
Optical Engineering, Holography, Information Storage Engineering
We are addressing research and development on measurement, display, visualization, and information storage technologies based on holography.
