What we do

We are working on highly advanced optical and electronic devices. The goal is to make smaller devices and devices that can withstand extreme environments like higher temperatures.

How are we doing this?

Such work requires atomic-level growth control. For growth,we use a sophisticated plasma, high-vacuum method. To evalvate the devices, we use X-rays, electron beams, atomic-force microscopes, photoluminescence devices, cathodoluminescence devices, and Hall-effect devices.

Crystal growth technique
 ・searching new substrate
 ・low temperature growth and control of crystal structure
