About the Program Organization

Ever since quantum physics emerged in the 20th century, it has supported a wide range of research and development activities of human being, from semiconductor technologies to nuclear power generation.

Now the quantum physics has acquired new significance in the 21st century as the academic field responsible for driving and supporting nanoscience, and consequently, nanotechnology.

In the future, nanoscience will have even greater importance particularly for resource-poor Japan which aims to build a nation based on science and technology.

Our COE is to be an international research and education center focusing on nanoscience and quantum physics.
