Exploring the frontiers of physics from cosmology to material and biological sciences.
- World leaders in physics and cutting-edge research facilities.
- A wide range of research fields in science to cover diverse interests.
- Problem-solving and laboratory courses to develop students' math, data analysis, and laboratory skills in physics.
Our department deals with various topics in physics. Examples include world-class research in superconductivity, the science that has received the most attention in the 21st century, and research in Astrophysics using the International Space Station and artificial satellites in global collaborations with various institutes such as JAXA and NASA. There are also active research groups on a wide range of physics, from nano-technology and atomic physics to soft matter, biological physics and physics of friction, providing broad opportunities for students based on their interests. Students will learn the basics of physics and mathematics in the first year and then work in a specialized field of modern physics from the second year. In the fourth year, students become members of a laboratory and work on cutting-edge research in each area.
