What kind of place is Research Institute for Electronic Science?

Think "electronic". All substances, from microscopic things such as atoms and molecules, to materials such as semiconductors, metals, and fibers, to the cells that make up our bodies, are made up of "electrons." Also, the movement of "electrons" can be controlled by light. By mathematically analyzing the movement of various "electrons", we can investigate light, matter, and life phenomena. At Research Institute for Electronic Science, we are developing interdisciplinary fields that integrate optical science, material science, life science, and mathematical science, and are conducting research with the aim of creating new electronic science.

do you have students?

At Research Institute for Electronic Science, many students assigned to laboratories from science undergraduate and graduate schools use the world's most advanced research equipment to conduct experiments for their graduation, master's, and doctoral theses. It is also characterized by the fact that not only Japanese students but also many international students are enrolled. The research results will be disseminated to the world. We are also actively engaged in international joint research, contributing to the development of global human resources.

Initiatives for SDGs

Recent press releases include the development of a new method of artificial photosynthesis using plasmons for decarbonization, and the development of safe and secure thermoelectric conversion materials that do not use toxic elements (Goal 7 [Energy], Goal 13 [Climate change]), and development of modeling methods and prediction evaluation methods for predicting novel coronavirus infections using mathematical science (Goal 6 [Water and sanitation]).
