Since the establishment of the Tokyo Butsurigaku Koshujo (Tokyo Academy of Physics), 135 years ago, the Department of Physics has constantly taken the lead in education and research at the Tokyo University of Science, the philosophy of which is the "advancement of science," while firmly maintaining advancement based on "Achieving Excellence". Physics is an academic field that pursues the essence of nature, by seeking universality from individual phenomena. The Department of Physics carries on the resolution of those before us, who aspired to the advancement of science, which continues to develop and change.
Research Groups & Research Areas
This area of research seeks to explain everything from the origins of the universe to the formation and evolution of planets, galaxies and other celestial objects, as well as to understand the basis of the fundamental laws of physics undergirding the existence of matter and the universe from the standpoint of physics.
Matsushita Research Group / Suzuki Research Group
Earth and Planetary
This area of research uses physical methods and seeks to deepen our understanding of the origins and evolution of the solar system, as well as the fundamental materials of life, in order to give us a better understanding of a vast range of planetary phenomena, including global warming, volcanoes and earthquakes.
Kimura Research Group
This area of research studies quantum information technology, such as quantum computers, quantum communications and quantum measurement, which are of immense significance to next-generation safe communications, precisions measurement, machine learning, genomic analysis, drug development, new materials development and much more.
Nikuni Research Group / Sadgrove Research Group / Sanaka Research Group / Yoshihara Research Group
This area of research seeks to understand the properties of materials as the groups of atoms and molecules that make up those materials. Theory and numerical calculation is used to explain the behavior of atoms and molecules. Experiments and measurements looking at the mutual interactions of matter with light and electromagnetic waves, electrons, neutrons, etc., are used to understand the underpinnings of physics.
Mitsuda Research Group / Nikuni Research Group / Sakata Research Group / Sadgrove Research Group / Tokunaga Research Group / Yamamoto Research Group
Focusing on experiments in physics, we look at physics education at junior high schools, high schools and the like, clarifying their current status and methodology.
