Solid-State Quantum Physics


Welcome to IKUSHIMA GROUP

Research Overview

Our mission is to control quantum states in low dimensional semiconductors and to creat new devices and measurement techniques.

Quantum Physics in Semiconductors

We study quantum electron transport in micro/nano-meter scale devices, particularly in semiconductor quantum dots (QD), quantum wells (QW) and two-dimensional electron systems (2DES) at high magnetic fields (QHE device). Based on quantum transport phenomena, we attempt to manipulate electron waves, electron/nuclear spins and terahertz photons.

The following topics are promoted
*Electron spin manipulation: ESR of the spin-polarized edge states
*THz photon detection: QD based single electron transistors
*THz photon creation: Landau-level emission in the edge states
*THz photon transmission/confinement: THz split ring resonators
*Photo response of double QW transistors in strong magnetic fields
*Landau-level emission from Graphenes
*Inter-edge-state scattering in InGaAs 2DES

Measurement Techniques

We also develop new THz or Acoustic measurement techniques for practical applications.

*Passive THz microscope: Living-cell thermal monitoring
*Acoustically stimulated electromagnetic response: Medical and nondestructive evaluation
