Osaka University's Photonics Center has teamed up with leading universities and research institutions in Asia to form a center of advanced nanophotonics research and education in Asia, where a diverse group of researchers engaged in cross-sectoral advanced photonics research involving physics, chemistry, medical science, and electric engineering will be assembled. Our goal is to create a research network to lead research in the field of photonics, which underpins the science and technology of the 21st century. We expect that this project will help researchers and students to: 1) develop individual expertise in their respective fields, broaden their multidisciplinary views of photonics, and acquire the capability to share their research findings with the world; and 2) develop the competency required for research exchange and joint research with a diverse range of international researchers from various cultural/social backgrounds, along with networking abilities. In so doing, the Center aims to develop young researchers who are capable of conducting internationally viable and pioneering photonics research for future generations.
