Outline

Photonic systems with novel functions are created, considering deeply physical phenomena in photonic devices and lightwaves.

Photonic systems with novel functions are created, considering deeply physical phenomena in photonic devices and lightwaves. Examples are photonic systems for measuring distributed strain along an optical fiber with mm order spatial resolution and those for signal processing by original schemes to synthesize arbitrarily optical interference properties. This research area is called "Systems Photonics."

Research Themes

Photonic sensing systems with a high sensitivity: Fiber Optic Gyros, Fiber Interferometer Sensors
Photonic Sensing and Processing with Synthesis of Optical Coherence Function (SOCF): Optical Tomography, Optical Reflectometry
