Outline

Fundamental studies and applications of opto/electronic/chemical properties of surfaces and interfaces of quantum structures

Basic studies on the electronic properties of surfaces and interfaces of quantum nano-structures, that are prepared by both physical and chemical techniques, are performed. The control and generation of novel optical/electronic/chemical functions are aimed. Focus is placed on the interdisciplinary topics of electronic physics and chemistry.
