Message from Prof.Endoh
I think that your purpose is to "get the ability to think for yourself and challenge unknown fields when you are a student, and to go out into society, realize yourself, and contribute to society." Therefore, in our laboratory, not only training on each person's graduation research theme, but also by studying the academic field of silicon integrated circuits from the basics, instead of memorizing knowledge, we will build up one by one from the principle toward the goal. I would like you to acquire the ability to think about it. Specifically, each person will read a textbook that is said to be the bible of semiconductor learners and present it at weekly study sessions to confirm their understanding of device physics and CMOS circuits, which are the basis of semiconductor devices. In addition, we will measure our own nanoscale devices and integrated circuits that are actually prototyped on silicon wafers. Then, the characteristics of actual devices and circuits are analyzed by applying the theory understood in the textbook or by using the simulator on the computer. By comparing theory and experiment, I hope that each knowledge and way of thinking that you have learned so far will be reconstructed into one in your mind. Finally, I would like you to actively present the research results you have obtained in your graduation research at papers, academic conferences, and international conferences. I hope that you will make a leap toward your dream.
