Welcome to the Itatani group web site.

We work on ultrafast optical sciences in soft X rays on femtosecond to attosecond time scales. Our research is based on the state-of-art high-peak-power femtosecond lasers which are developed by ourselves to keep our cutting edge status in ultrafast optical technologies. Following are the topics that we are currently dedicated to:

  • R&D of intense ultrashort light sources, especially in IR/MIR/THz regions,
  • Attosecond physics, especially on the generation of attosecond EUV-SX pulses, and their applications to novel spectroscopy and imaging, and
  • Strong field phenomena in solids.

In future, we hope to extend our research to the following fields:

  • Control of coherent electron wavepackets and their applications
  • Search for novel ultrafast phenomena in super strong laser fields

To Join Our Group

The Itatani group can accept graduate students from the physics department of the University of Tokyo. Postdoctoral researchers may join using several fellowship programs. (Please note that applicants are supposed to consult with Dr. Itatani prior to the application.)

Our research fields are closely related to laser technologies, material sciences, and atomic and molecular physics. We therefore welcome positive candidates with different scientific backgrounds. Experiences on ultrafast optics, photo-ionization spectroscopy, and quantum chemistry would be a strong plus. For further information, please contact Dr. Itatani (See Members page for Email address).
