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!

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.

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.
