University of Tokyo Professor: Kenichi L. Ishikawa
We conduct theoretical study related to light, laser, radiation, and ion beams. Now, we are one of the world-leading groups in ab-initio simulations of femtosecond-laser interaction with atoms and molecules, strong-field phenomena, high-harmonic generation, and attosecond laser science. We welcome enthusiastic members to strive for cutting-edge research together!

Have you ever heard of any of these?
“Attosecond science”, “high-field phenomena”, “time-dependent multi-electron theory”, “quantum chemistry”, “large scale electronic structure theory”, “density functional theory (DFT)”. If “yes”, bring a pencil and paper, or some computer skills to pioneer new areas of physics that surprise the world with us!

After obtaining Ph.D in Physics, I joined Ishikawa Lab, one of the world leading groups in the theory of ultrafast light-matter interactions. I ‘m working on ab initio simulations of atoms and molecules in time-dependent external laser field. We have a dream that one day not only specialized theoreticians but also experimentalists can benefit from the wonderful “tools” we invented!

Advanced laser/quantum beam, such as free electron laser and high-order harmonic pulses, have a possibility to pioneer a novel laser material processing. I am experimentally investigating phenomena in irradiating such advanced sources to the materials cooperating with theoretical studies in Ishikawa Lab.

I chose to join Ishikawa Lab, which is totally different from my areas of research back in the Tokyo Tech. Although I need to learn a lot to catch up, so far I am enjoying my new research environment with a support from excellent faculties and fellow students. If you are from different fields but interested in the Ishikawa lab, please do not hesitate and take up the challenge.
