Takahashi Laboratory

Industrial Institute of Science,
The University of Tokyo


Nano-probing Technology

Nano-world through nano probe

∼ Watching what cannot be "seen" ∼

Scanning probe microscopy (SPM) including scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) and atomic force microscopy (AFM), which has very high spatial resolution (about nano-scale), is used in various fields. We are aiming to develop SPM techniques in various environments (vacuum, strong magnetic field, low temperature) and make a way of developing novel nanodevices by local investigation of physical properties.

We welcome master and doctor course students

Takahashi laboratory belongs to the Institute of Industrial Science, and also belongs to the Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Systems (EEIS), Graduate School of Engineering. Information on the entrance examination can be found in the web site of EEIS. Since research topics in the university should be interdisciplinary, students with variety of backgrounds, not limited in the electrical engineering, are very welcome. If you have any questions or if you want to visit our laboratory, pleases ask Prof. Takahashi without hesitation.
