The Nanophotonics Research Center (NPC), NPC seeks to deepen the fundamental knowledge of nanometer-scale light-matter interactions and exploit our findings in various kinds of new principles and technologies. NPC is is the research center for nanophotonics in The University of Tokyo. and is led by the Director Prof. Motoichi Ohtsu.

The Nanophotonics Research Center (NPC) has been set up in the Institute of Engineering Innovation affiliated with the School of Engineering in the University of Tokyo.

NPC is conducting cutting-edge research in nanophotonics via various kinds of experiments and theories. A diverse range of topics and viewpoints are covered, such as basic physical principles in light-matter interactions, the relation to conventional optics, photonics, spintronics, bio-engineering, nano-fabrication, information and communications, and many others. NPC seeks to deepen the fundamental knowledge of nanometer-scale light-matter interactions and exploit our findings in various kinds of new principles and technologies. NPC will share knowledge and experiences with industry in a coherent and collaborative manner. By fostering cooperation among NPC members specializing in various research fields, NPC will stimulate further development of nanophotonics, which NPC hopes will spark the discovery of new research fields.

NPC also hosts open seminars and symposiums periodically, and also promoting collaborations with industry. In addition, NPC will be actively involved in international collaborations and will cooperate with the administrative office of the Global COE Program “Secure-life electronics” currently underway at the University of Tokyo.
