The lab is researching inorganic optical material with its robust frame structure, and are conducting research on the expression of optical functions through formation of nanostructures on the surface.
The lab carries out experimental research into the realization and the application of the novel states of light, by generating individual single photons and controlling the quantum correlation between these photons. Toward the perfect control of single photons, they investigate nano-scale photonic structures for optical quantum devices and single photon sources.
This project is about the ultimate nanocarbons "exotic nanocarbons", which are expected to make innovations possible in a wide number of fields ranging from the environment, energy, resources and ICT to biotechnology and medicine. Four distinguished researchers with differing backgrounds in nanotechnology were invited to participate in this project and they, together with Shinshu University and participating companies, are conducting joint research on a wide range of topics with the goal of making various advanced innovations.
