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!

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 am completely new to the world of attosecond dynamics of molecules under the influences of intense laser fields, and becoming a member of Ishikawa Lab. was a challenging decision for me. Now I am really satisfied with the members from wide varieties of backgrounds. I am also motivated by the ambitious research topics in this laboratory.

One of the fields of expertise of our lab is developing theoretical model and simulation of ultrafast dynamics at the quantum level such as atoms, molecules, and solid-state. If you are math and programming geek or love fiddling with those quantum mechanical operators and wavefunctions don’t hesitate to contact us.

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.

Since I had an interest in electron movement in the extremely short period of time, I chose Ishikawa・Sato laboratory which does simulations of atoms and molecules’ interaction with latest advanced lasers. My research theme is far different from the one I did in my undergraduate years. However, I am really enjoying it now.
