Research Topic

As part of the Research Center for Advanced Science and Technology (RCAST), we also actively pursue interdisciplinary research in collaboration with different labs from the industry, governmental organizations, and universities; domestically and internationally.

Optical Coherent Tomography

Optical Coherent Tomography

OCT is an imaging technique that uses coherent light to capture micrometer-resolution, used for medical imaging and industrial nondestructive testing.

Light Detection and Ranging

Light Detection and Ranging

LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) is a technology for detecting the distance. It can be applied for the auto driving car and 3D imaging.

Optical Fiber Device

Optical Fiber Device

Optical devices using nano-carbon (carbon nanotubes and graphene), fiber lasers and amplifiers, nonlinear optics, photonics, optoelectronics.

CNT Mode-Locked Fiber Laser

CNT Mode-Locked Fiber Laser

Achieve mode-locking of rare-earth-doped fiber laser at 2 μm by using graphene or single-walled carbon nanotubes.

Graphene Photonics

Graphene Photonics

Chip Cavity Mode-Locked by using the graphene covered chip (intra-cavity patterned graphene on SiN Waveguides)

Photonic Sensing

Photonic Sensing

Photonic sensing technologies based on spectroscopic, fiber optics, and LIDAR technologies. And explore the chip-scale integrated planar photonic sensing

Best Poster Award

The Yamashita-Set Lab, thanks to the diligent work done by its Masters student Mr. Kota Uyama, recently received the best poster award in the 2021 EEIS RINKO poster presentations at the University of Tokyo. The award is given to the student who both achieved a high level of research along with a high quality presentation. Congratulations Uyama-san!

Join Us for The 82nd JSAP Autumn Meeting 2021

This year we will have two presenters presenting three papers at the 82nd JSAP Autumn Meeting 2021. The first is our PhD student Zheyuan Zhang, who will be presenting his most recent research on both Laser Mode-Locking and LiDAR. The information on his first paper, titled “Laser Mode-locking using SWCNT@BNNT with 1D van der Waals Heterostructure as a Saturable Absorber with a High Optical Damage Threshold”, can be found at the following link:

Program number: 10a-N107-6

The presentations will begin tomorrow morning (the 10th of September) and go throughout the weekend. We wish the both of them the best of luck!

Lab Introductory Video

After the participation of the Yamashita-Set Lab in The University of Tokyo Open Campus event, the lab would like to share with the public a more in-depth introduction into what we are doing here currently in the lab.
