Liquids, the final frontier!
Electronic structure of liquids and solutions, which is an unexplored field of experimental studies with many unknown things and anomalies, is my research interest. The methods I use are X-ray spectroscopy in a soft X-ray region such as X-ray emission and X-ray absorption spectroscopy. I've developed liquid flow-through cell and emission spectrometer for soft X-ray spectroscopy at the synchrotron radiation facility SPring-8, and I'm now exploring the world of liquids and solutions.
