In our group we aim to create innovative materials that contribute to the environment, energy, medicine, information technologies. Our interest is related to nanometric functional materials. Especially nanophotonics and plasmonic materials where the electromagnetic field is spatially confined. Applications of our research include high-performance biosensors, filtering devices and magnetic devices. We develop such new materials by combining top-down lithography techniques and bottom-up self assembly methods.
The fabricated novel materials are evaluated by state-of-the-art instruments. Besides material/device fabrication, we also develop new electron microscopy techniques. New "eyes" open the door to discovery.
This group has started in 2014. We are looking for motivated grad-students/post-docs who are willing to start up new research as well as new instrumentation. Feel free to contact us by email (sannomiya.t.aa(at)m.titech.ac.jp)
