Outline of the Research
We are studying on nano-scaled materials (such as carbon nanotubes etc.) and surface and interface (low-dimensional) structure of semi-conductors and metals.
Transmission electron microscopy (TEM), scanning tunneling microscopy (STM), reflection high-energy electron diffraction (RHEED), X-ray diffraction (XRD), synchrotron radiation (SR) are our main tools.
In addition to reveal a new physics on such materials, applications of nano materials to electronic devices are also studied.
- Synthesis and characterization of carbon nanotubes and related nano-materials
- Field emission of from carbon nanotubes (CNTs)
- Applications of CNT electron sources to vacuum nano-electronics devices
- Surface physics and characterization of self-organized surface nano-structures of semiconductor materials
- X-ray diffraction for surfaces and interfaces
- Synchrotron radiation experiments
