Team Leader, Semiconductor Quantum Information Device Research Team 


We study physics and technology of solid-state information processing based on a concept of quantum state control. We aim to demonstrate ability of spin-based quantum computing with semiconductor quantum dots, develop control methods of quantum coherence and entanglement and innovative quantum information devices, and in addition explore control methods of topological particles providing new concepts of quantum information.

Research Themes
