Our history and environment that made us one of the world-leading groups in the theory of femtosecond-laser interaction with atoms and molecules, strong-field phenomena, high-harmonic generation, and attosecond laser science.

Two pillars in our research – “Attosecond science” to theoretically study on an interaction of laser pulses with matters happening in an extremely short period of time.

I’m interested in fundamental phenomena related to ultrafast and nonlinear electron dynamics driven by state-of-the-art laser pulse, which might be useful tools for more application side such as laser processing. I’ve worked on elucidation of the phenomena via quantum simulations, most frequently based on ab-initio theories, and development of the simulation schemes.

I chose Ishikawa・Sato laboratory which does simulations of optical physics because I have been interested in this field. Thanks to wonderful staffs and lab members, I am enjoying my research life. If you want to try to new things, please get in touch.
