About the Physics program

The Department of Physics from Osaka University was established in 1931 when Osaka University was founded. The tradition of the originality in research was established by the first president of the Osaka University, Prof. H. Nagaoka, a prominent physicist. Our former faculty includes Prof. H. Yagi, who invented the Yagi antenna, and Prof. S. Kikuchi, who demonstrated electron diffraction and also constructed the first cyclotron in Japan, and Prof. H. Yukawa who created his meson theory for nuclear forces when he was a lecture at Osaka University, yielding the first Japanese Nobel laureate. 

Other prominent professors in recent years are Profs. T. Nagamiya and J. Kanamori who established the theory of magnetism, and Prof. R. Uchiyama who developed a gauge theory.
