In order to realize a rich and sustainable society, technological innovation is necessary. The Department of Applied Physics carries out research and education to innovate new materials and devices. As a strategy for innovating new materials and devices, we are studying from the following three viewpoints:

  • (1) "Quantum physical system" for fundamentally seeking microscopic properties of materials based on quantum mechanics: Itou Lab, Miyajima Lab, Miyakawa Lab, Saitoh Lab, Tohyama Lab.
  • (2) "Mathematical and statistical physics system" for analyzing complicated phenomena by mathematical model construction: Araki Lab, Komukae Lab, Sumino Lab.
  • (3) "Advanced device system" for aiming at creation of a new device in the market: Higuchi Lab, Kinoshita Lab, Okamura/Nakajima Lab.
