Photonic nanostructures and topological wave engineering

  • (7) エネルギーをみんなに そしてクリーンに

  • (9) 産業と技術革新の基盤をつくろう


We are investigating photonic nanostructures including photonic crystals for diverse applications. In particular, we are pursuing unprecedent technologies controlling light and novel photonic devices based on the concept of topology, which provides an intriguing approach to control light. Our research interests also include quantum optics and light-matter interactions in photonic nanostructures, and nanophotonics using diamond materials toward quantum information applications.
In this exhibition, visitors can enjoy manipulating the behavior of light using everyday stuff, which is akin to a technique widely used in scientific research. We will also demonstrate some amazing phenomena invoked by the control of light.
