Research Interests

The main focus of our research is on finding the microscopic origins of novel physical properties of correlated electron systems by means of spectroscopic tools, especially angle resolved photoemission spectroscopy. The topics we study are as follows.
* Microscopic mechanism for Rashba and spin Hall effects
* Emergent electronic states in artificial systems
* Topological effects in correlated materials
* Novel metal insulator transitions in transition metal oxides
* Exotic phenomena in unconventional superconductors
* Universal phase diagram of cuprite superconductors.
