Suzuki, Motofumi

Professor: Motofumi Suzuki


He studies thin film nano-structures and -morphologies expecting the novel properties related them. Especially, he is now interested in the optical and mechanical properties of thin films with tailored nano-morphologies prepared by dynamic oblique deposition (DOD).
