Since the invention of the laser in 1960, photonics has been an integral part of our life - telecommunication, medicine, defense, energy, consumer equipment, scientific research, and entertainment. Following the great tradition of photonics, the goal of Goda Lab is to develop innovative technologies based on "light" that will revolutionize science, industry, and medicine in the 21st century. Such technologies are based on an interdisciplinary integration of physics and chemistry supported by complementary disciplines such as mathematics, biology, computer science, engineering, and medicine. The development of new technologies is also of prominent significance for the global economy as it directly boosts the creation of new jobs and new markets. Another and equally important goal of Goda Lab is to produce future global leaders who will shape the world. Directed by Prof. Keisuke Goda, Goda Lab fosters an international research environment and is located at two universities: University of Tokyo and University of California, Los Angeles. Goda Lab constantly seeks for ambitious individuals from any university in any country who want to play leading roles in photonics innovation and have major impacts on the world.
