Division of Advanced Spectroscopy
  Light is a versatile tool for investigation of the materials such as semiconductors, metals, organic and biological materials as well as strongly-correlated electron systems. Recent developments in lasers and electron accelerators along with the novel measurement techniques have been providing us innovative experimental tools.
  Our division is responsible for the advanced spectroscopy applied to material researches and also   the development of new coherent light sources based on laser technology over a wide spectrum range from X-ray to terahertz. Most of the research activities on the development of new lasers with an extreme performance and the application to material science are directed in a specially designed building with a large clean room and an isolated floor in Kashiwa Campus. The experiments utilizing the synchrotron radiation are performed at beamlines in Photon Factory (Tsukuba) and SPring-8 (Hyogo).
  The main current subjects are as follows:
  • Physics under ultra-high optical field and attosecond pulse generation.
  • Ultrafast dynamics of wave-packets and photo-induced phase transitions.
  • Ultra-thin low-threshold quantum-wire lasers, and firefly bioluminescence.
  • Study on ultra-high resolution photoemission and time-resolved photoemission.
  • Study of X-ray optics, surfaces, interfaces and nano-materials by X-ray scattering/diffraction.
  • Laser development and precise control for next-generation spectroscopy
  • Attosecond spectroscopy and imaging using strong laser fields and coherent soft x-ray pulses
