Studies on photonics materials and devices to control lightwave

We aim at broadband optical signal processing and lightwave generation through developing novel functional materials according to our own guideline of materials design and fabricating novel devices such as micro-structured fibers and microspheres.

Research Themes

Super continuum lightwave generation by microstructured fibers
Lightwave processing by highly nonlinear fibers
Studies on ultrabroadband gain and laser media doped with novel optically active ions
Studies on solar pumped lasers



The world’s first continuous laser oscillation of terbium
