Dept. Applied-Physics and Physico-Informatics, Keio University
We are doing Surface Science using Scanning Probe Microscopy
For Prospective Students and Postdocs
We accept graduate students through our International Graduate Program. If you are interested, please send me (tshimizu at appi.keio.ac.jp (replace at with @)) your CV, along with a brief description of your proposed project or your academic interests.
We also welcome students under a short-term exchange program. The Graduate School of Science and Technology at Keio University provides a short-term exchange program, which can last from one semester to a full academic year, for students at partner institutions. For more details, please visit university webpage.
Additionally, we host postdoctoral researchers through the JSPS fellowship programs.
About Shimizu Group
April 2023 marks the sixth year of Shimizu Group in the Department of Applied Physics and Physico-Informatics, Faculty of Science and Technology, Keio University.
Our group focuses on the characterization of surfaces and interfaces of various materials including metals, semiconductors, oxides, organic thin films,
and adsorbed molecules. Scanning probe microscopy at the single atomic and molecular scales provides key information for the understanding of catalytic reaction mechanisms and the development of next-generation devices.
