Graduate School/Areas


We are working on the synthesis/growth of “emerging nanomaterials” (nanoparticles, nanowires, 2D atomic layer materials, etc.) and their characterization using “cutting-edge methods” (atomic resolution microscopy and spectroscopy, surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy, etc.) as well as their application in “devices and sensing” (ultrahigh-speed devices, flexible photonic devices, spintronic devices, energy-conversion devices, chemical/bio-sensing, ultra-trace sensing, quantum sensing, etc.). Furthermore, we aim at opening new frontiers in materials science by actively introducing “quantum technology, artificial intelligence, and robotics” to our own research. Faculties and students with diverse backgrounds gather, interact, and carry out collaborative research in order to contribute to “the sustainable development of human society”.

Education policy:

Nanoscience and technology are at the core of the modern materials science. Computational materials science together with nano-level fabrication, imaging, and metrology are utilized to design and analyze nanomaterials. Novel inorganic as well as organic nanomaterials controlled at atomic/molecular level are created, and innovative devices, sensing techniques, and quantum technology are developed making full use of these materials. From now on, we expect application of information science, mechanical science, and robotics to materials science research will be further accelerated. We foster globally active researchers and engineers who take part in the sustainable development of our society and who will co-create the future of materials science with us.
