Visit from Japan

Prof. Boccaccini mit Prof. Yuichi Nakamura und Prof. Go Kawamura

On 5-6 March 2018 we received the visit of Prof. Yuichi Nakamura (pictured with Prof. Boccaccini), Department of Electrical and Electronic Information Engineering, Toyohashi University of Technology, TUT, Japan. We are collaborating with TUT in a research program funded by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) entitled: Program for Advancing Strategic International Networks to Accelerate the Circulation of Talented Researchers, which aims to build up and expand international collaborative research networks through the circulation of young researchers among research institutes in Japan, Germany and USA. The objective of the project is to develop artificial magnetic lattices (AML) with innovative features, such as controlling optical and electromagnetic waves by designing nanostructures. Prof. Go Kawamura (Matsuda-Muto-Kawamura lab) (also pictured) is leading the collaboration between TUT and our Institute [1]. Prof. Kawamura is visiting us for 2 months and further visits from Japanese researchers are planned for later in 2018.
