In our laboratory, we are conducting research for demonstrating nano-optical information systems that operate based on the fundamental principles of nanophotonics, which involves interactions between light and matter in a nanometric region. The optical near-field, which is non-propagating light that forms the basis of nanophotonics, induces unique physical phenomena between matter because of its localized nature, and information applications that can be realized by exploiting these phenomena will boast of compactness, high speed, and low energy, which will meet the needs of society and will also serve as new seeds in the construction of a next-generation information society. Our specific research themes are wide-ranging, from the construction of devices and systems that make use of the characteristics of the optical near-field, to elucidating the basic physics governing their functions.
