About Laboratory

Consists of laboratory

treeIshikawa Laboratory was born in April, 2002 as a sub-group of Nakazawa Laboratory under the former Department of Quantum Engineering and Systems Science, School of Engineering, the University of Tokyo. Since then we have conducted interdisciplinary research related to light, laser, radiation, and ion beams. Now, Ishikawa Laboratory is one of the world-leading groups especially in the theory of femtosecond-laser interaction with atoms and molecules, strong-field phenomena, high-harmonic generation, and attosecond laser science.

Organization and research

While based in the Department of Nuclear Engineering and Management (NEM), we also belong to the Photon Science Center (PSC) and the Department of Applied Physics in the School of Engineering.

In addition, Prof. Kenichi Ishikawa, a visiting scientist of RIKEN, conducts joint researches on attosecond science with the Attosecond Science Research Team of the RIKEN Center for Advanced Photonics and on heavy-particle beam dose evaluation with RIKEN Nishina Center for Accelerator-Based Science.

Research environment

Ishikawa Laboratory also actively collaborates with universities and research institutes world-wide – Vienna University of Technology, Tohoku University, National Institute of Radiological Sciences to name a few. Our lab members frequently attend international conferences to present new achievements.

Our driving force is “initiative and motivation” of each member. We welcome enthusiastic members to strive for cutting-edge research together.
