Shuichi Nosé (能勢 修一, Nose Shūichi, June 17, 1951 – August 17, 2005) was a Japanese physicist.

Nosé is best known for his two 1984 papers in which he proposed a method to specify the temperature of molecular dynamics. It was later improved by William G. Hoover, and is known as the Nosé-Hoover thermostat.
