Thermal management by nanotechnology

We are interested in characteristic thermal phenomena in nanoscale systems and development of novel thermal management technology in semiconductors by nanostructuring. We develop energy-autonomous sensing systems with thermoelectric energy harvesters with several companies. We also investigate "Integrated Quantum Electronics", which enables new physics and technology by hybridizing quanta. Recently, we focus on photon-phonon hybrid quantum science using surface phonon polaritons.
