Researches in Saito Laboratory

Outline of the Research

We are studying on nano-scaled materials (such as carbon nanotubes etc.) and surface and interface (low-dimensional) structure of semi-conductors and metals. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM), scanning tunneling microscopy (STM), reflection high-energy electron diffraction (RHEED), X-ray diffraction (XRD), synchrotron radiation (SR) are our main tools. In addition to reveal a new physics on such materials, applications of nano materials to electronic devices are also studied.

Research Themes

  • Synthesis and characterization of carbon nanotubes and related nano-materials
  • Field emission of from carbon nanotubes (CNTs)
  • Applications of CNT electron sources to vacuum nano-electronics devices
  • Surface physics and characterization of self-organized surface nano-structures of semiconductor materials
  • X-ray diffraction for surfaces and interfaces
  • Synchrotron radiation experiments
