In 1981 Yasuhiko Arakawa became the first researcher to propose the concept of three-dimensional confinement of carriers and quantum-dot lasers, predicting significant reductions in the temperature dependence of threshold current.
While at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech; Pasadena, CA) for two years beginning in 1986, Arakawa did seminal work in theorizing that low-dimensional carriers in quantum wires and dots are effective in enhancing modulation dynamics and spectral properties of semiconductor lasers.
Arakawa's contributions also include discovery of continuum states in the energy range below the band gap energy of the wetting layer, which showed that self-assembled indium arsenide (InAs) quantum dots were different from ideal quantum dots.

Fujitsu and the University of Tokyo will continue development to extend the temperature range for adjustment-free operation and to achieve single-mode lasing, targeting practical commercial application of this technology by 2007.

The Toden Arakawa Line (都電荒川線) is a streetcar line in Tokyo, Japan.
The Toden Arakawa Line operates in northern and eastern Tokyo, in areas that tourists frequently do not see; for that reason alone, the quick trip is highly worthwhile.
Unlike the so-called surface train lines, which are actually elevated and whisk passengers over neighborhoods quickly, the Arakawa line allows riders to have leisurely, street-level views of older sections of Tokyo that differ dramatically from the busy and increasingly high-rise neighborhoods like Shibuya, Shinjuku, and Ikebukuro.

TOKYO - Scientists from Fujitsu (Profile, Products, Articles) Ltd. and The University of Tokyo have developed a laser that is capable of maintaining a stable output over a wide temperature range at speeds and frequencies useful for optical communications, the research team said Friday.
The laser was developed by a team led by Yasuhiko Arakawa, director of the Nanoelectronics Collaborative Research Center at The University of Tokyo, and is based on quantum dots.
To provide the kind of stable output required by applications such as optical networking, systems must be built to adjust the power of the laser to keep the output constant as the temperature changes or keep the laser at a constant temperature so the input power can remain the same.

Jonathan Wilkinson, President and CEO of QuestAir, said that the Japanese Government and industry have both made significant commitments towards the demonstration of fuel cell vehicles and hydrogen infrastructure in Japan.
In addition, the HyQuestor is less than half the size of other pressure swing adsorption systems that were considered for this station, which means that the hydrogen generation and purification system could be packaged into a very compact space".
