We are trying to develop an all-optical integrated circuit to achieve ultra-low energy consumption for signal processing. Since photons do not generate heat, it may be a suitable platform to achieve low-power logic gates. However, it is not straightforward, and there are a lot of things that we have to solve.
It sounds like we are pursuing research topics that are close to a real application, but in reality, it is not. Our research topics belong rather in fundamental and applied physics areas.
For more information on research detail, you may read some of our papers that are listed in the publication list. In addition, we are publishing the Annual Report of research activities, where you can find information on our research. Please note that these reports were written by Japanese bachelor and master (and some PhD) students; therefore the English level is sometimes not excellent. But still, you should be able to understand the taste of our research.General info Message Research Diversity Publications Album Q&A
