Physics explores the principles and laws that serve as the fundamentals of natural phenomena, and its targets extend over a broad range, from elementary particles to the cosmos, artificial substances, and living organisms/environment. Based on the spirit of the university's foundation of the "advancement of science," the Department of Physics opens its doors widely to young people and working people who wish to study in the evening.
Research Groups & Research Areas
This area considers information determining the amount of substances existing in the universe, dark energy, the value of the Hubble constant, the age of the universe, and the like.
Kase Research Group
Theory of Physicality / Theoretical Physics
Theoretically grasping the universal structures behind natural phenomena, we explain experimental facts and predict unknown events.
Sakai Research Group
Solid-State Physics (Experimental)
We carry out experiments to understand the properties of substances, and apply those properties to develop or search for devices and functional materials.
Meguro Research Group / Nishio Research Group / Zhao Research Group
We conduct research on the structures, etc. of living creatures utilizing physical methods.
Umemura Research Group
Atomic Physics / Particle Beam Physics
We use electrons, positrons and the like to elucidate the properties of atoms.
Nagashima Research Group
* For graduation research, the research groups in the Faculty of Science Division II Department of Physics, students can select a research group from the Department of Physics and Department of Applied Physics in the Faculty of Science Division I.
