This lecture is an introduction to semiconductor physics. The fundamental character of lattice-defect in a semiconductor, and the thin-film growth technique of semiconductor are presented.

Physical Metallurgy

In this lecture, deformation and fracture behavior of real metal materials as well as defect-free, ideal metal crystals are discussed from the viewpoints of microstructure and chemical composition.

Molecular Solid State Physics

Fundamental solid state physics are discussed to understand the physical properties of functional organic solids. Beginning with the basic quantum mechanics, we proceed to learn the features of the electron in a periodic potential, and eventually apply the knowledge to the explanation of electric and optical properties.

Advanced Planetary Science

Meteorites, cosmic dusts and planets in our solar system, and the detection of extrasolar planets are covered. Recent papers related to solar planetary sciences and extrasolar planets will be read and discussed.

Solid State Geophysics

Physics-based radiation effects will be studied, hence the dating methods based on solid state physics, and their application to earth sciences and to archaeology.

Optical and Infrared Astronomy

The purpose of this lecture is to understand the fundamentals of the radiative processes of visible and infrared light in astrophysics, and the observational quantities, methods, and technologies in the optical and infrared astronomy.

Advanced topics in coherent waves

The purpose of this lecture is to understand the mathematical expressions of wave motion. In particular we focus on coherent waves. Through this lecture, you will understand the coherency of wave motion and then learn about these applied techniques.

Electrophysiology

In the first part of this lecture, we will study the basic mechanism of the neuron which generates and transmits electrical signals, then about the neural networks of the human nervous system. EEG and MEG will be studied as an introduction to clinical applications of electrophysiology.

Pathology and Medical Biophysics

We study the basics of oxidative stress and cell injuries in view of Biophysics. We will focus on iron- and copper-induced oxidative stress rich in human body. To cope with the investigation, electron spin resonance is very useful for the pathological and medical studies.

Blood Purification Studies

In this course, we provide knowledge about the process of hemodialysis and its future image that has been conducted by trial and error for more than 60 years. We will study the process of hemodialysis and how it has changed by trial and error over the past 60 years and how it may change in the future.
