Nobuko Naka is an associate professor in the Department of Physics at Kyoto University, Japan. She received her Ph.D. in physics from the University of Tokyo on the topic of two-photon spectroscopy of excitons in Cu2O and subsequently joined as a lecturer in the Department of Applied Physics at the University of Tokyo. She has been leading research projects on Rydberg excitons and carrier transport in wide band-gap semiconductors. Her current interests also include controlling light-matter interactions in mesoscopic structures, developing novel nonlinear laser spectroscopy, and exploring quantum condensed phases in photoexcited semiconductors.


A Solid Observation of Strong Kerr Nonlinearity

Researchers have demonstrated that a solid can exhibit an enhanced nonlinear optical phenomenon usually seen only in cold atomic gases. Read More »
