Research Center for Development of Far-Infrared Region

The Research Center for Development of Far-Infrared Region is carrying out integrated research and development on far-infrared light / terahertz waves, a new region of electromagnetic wave that lies between radio waves and visible light. More specifically, the Center develops advanced version of the Gyrotron, a world-leading high-power terahertz wave source of its own development, and applies it to novel research projects across a wide range of fields such as material science, life science, basic physics, new functional materials development, and energy science. The Center also aims for development of novel terahertz wave generation method and a new spectroscopic technique to push forward researches on bio molecule measurement / imaging and organic conductors / semiconductors. Having signed academic exchange agreements and joint research memorandums with numerous research institutions across the globe, the Center has proactively promoted global research partnerships to gain increasing recognition as a global center for the research in the far-infrared region.
