Semiconductor Materials Laboratory

Utilizing the strange phenomena in the nano world for material development

As semiconductor devices are increasingly functionalized and miniaturized, the film materials used in them have reached the thickness of several nanometers. In this tiny world, we witness strange physical phenomena unthinkable in the ordinary world, such as particles piercing through walls. Our laboratory conducts research with the aim to use the phenomenon known as “quantum effects” to develop new functional materials.
