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
