We study the interaction of a laser pulse and an ion beam with matter through theory and simulations. Our research interest is a new field called high-field phenomena and attosecond science, which studies the quantum dynamics in an ultrashort intense laser field. Especially, we investigate highly nonlinear processes such as high-harmonic generation and tunneling ionization as well as attosecond electron dynamics in atoms and molecules, based on atomic and plasma physics as well as quantum chemistry. Also, we develop a sophisticated method of dose calculation for heavy-ion cancer therapy, which will run on the next-generation supercomputor.
We are looking for brilliant and motivated graduate students (master and PhD) who will conduct theoretical and simulational research in one of the above-mentioned fields. Interested candidates are invited to apply for the Special Graduate Program (scholarship) of the Department of Nuclear Engineering and Mangement. See the website for details and application forms.
To become a postdoc
The best and most common way is to apply for JSPS (Japan Society for the Promotion of Science) Fellowships.
