The Nanophotonics Laboratory in the Department of Applied Physics at Osaka University focuses on the development and application of advanced optical microscopy techniques in the biological and medical fields. The laboratory focuses on Raman microscopy, Raman tag imaging, and super-resolution microscopy.
The laboratory develops state-of-the-art optical microscopy techniques, including advanced Raman microscopy and super-resolution microscopy systems. These systems allow researchers to study biological samples at the cellular and molecular level with high spatial resolution and to better understand cellular and molecular interactions.
We also use these advanced tools to study the molecular mechanisms of cellular processes, develop new diagnostic tools for the early detection of diseases such as cancer, and study a wide range of biological and medical problems.
In addition to our research activities, our laboratory is committed to education and training, providing hands-on training in advanced optical microscopy techniques and opportunities for collaborative research projects with leading scientists and institutions around the world.
We also place great emphasis on international and interdisciplinary collaborations and have established partnerships with universities and research institutions around the world. These collaborations provide opportunities for the exchange of knowledge and ideas and the development of new technologies and applications in the field of advanced optical microscopy.
Current research topics:
Super resolution microscopy
DUV laser fabrication
and their applications
