The synchrotron radiation laboratory is promoting advanced solid state spectroscopy using synchrotron radiation in soft X-ray and vacuum ultraviolet region. We operate a branch laboratory at SPring-8 to maintain the high-brilliance soft X-ray beamline BL07LSU of the University of Tokyo, where timeresolved soft X-ray spectroscopy and high-resolution soft X-ray emission spectroscopy are utilized to study electronic states and dynamics in new materials. The beamlines, BL-18A, BL-19A, and BL-19B, maintained by the Tsukuba branch at the Photon Factory (KEK-PF) were closed in March, 2014. The advanced experimental techniques, developed and accumulated at the branch, are utilized in experimental stations using vacuum ultraviolet and soft X-ray lasers at Kashiwa campus.
