Researches on Nanobiophotonics:

We carry out research on Nano-biophotonics, a new research field which combines Nanotechnology, Biology and Photonics. We develop technologies to observe living cells and biomolecules with spatial super-resolution and extremely high sensitivity, by utilizing nanotechnology based on nano-materials such as metal nanoparticles/nanoclusters, and vibrational spectroscopy for molecular analysis such as infrared spectroscopy and Raman spectroscopy. Super-resolving capability and ultra high sensitivity for observing/sensing biomolecules and DNA can be achieved by using novel nanotechnologies such as scanning probe techniques, various types of optical spectroscopy and localized surface plasmonics. We are evolving these techniques to create new biological applications.
