The Itoh Research Group is actively pursuing to realize the ultimate silicon computer that uses individual silicon atoms to perform computations.
Computing with individual atoms is truly the cutting edge of nanotechnology where binary values are stored in silicon atoms.
A device that computes at the atomic level, governed by quantum mechanics, will be an entirely new kind of computer;
A quantum computer.
This research group focuses on realizing the complete manipulation of semiconductor isotopes using state-of-the-art nanotechnology.
The research carried out in this group covers a wide variety of novel quantum physics emerging in low-dimensional semiconductor structures and their applications to a new class of devices such as quantum computers.
In Spintronics research, the direction of electron spin vectors are used to represent binary digits "1"s and "0"s.
A spin vector pointing up represents a "1" and a spin vector pointing down represents a "0".
With this intuitively simple setup, Quantum Computers of the future will depend on these electron spin vectors for storing and computing information.
A little help from Japanese Phonetics and by using a series of 3 directional arrows to represent binary digits "110", we were able to create a fitting logo.
The Itoh Research Group is located in 24-509B at Keio University's Yagami Campus. Yagami Campus is home to Keio University's Faculty of Science and Technology and is a 15-minute walk from Hiyoshi Station. Hiyoshi Station lies along the Tokyu-Toyoko line connecting Shibuya and Yokohama.Visiting? Please check Yagami Campus on Google Maps along with this step-by-step guide to Yagami Campus.
