Research around optical computers, beginning from the invention of the laser in the 1960s, is entering a new phase in recent years, with coordinated advances of nanotechnology on the hardware side and big data applications on the software side. Our laboratory is advancing cutting-edge research on nano-optical information devices and systems that realize high-level practical functionalities based on applications of nano-optics. New forms of information applications realized by light, which possesses not only intensity but also various physical quantities such as wavelength, polarization, and phase, embodies the characteristics of small size, high speed, and energy efficiency which respond to society’s needs; they also act as seeds for construction of the next-generation information society. Research themes are described HERE, but the specific experimental details are wide-ranging, from design and assembly of optical devices and systems to tests of fundamental principles and functional evaluations.
