We study structures on surfaces and interfaces, crystal growth mechanisms, and self-organized growth techniques, to clarify the basic physics on quantum devices and nano-scaled semiconductor devices. Our approach methods are:

We also studying new methods to investigate surfaces and interfaces physics.
