Research Description

  1. VIbrational spectroscopy of molecules adsorbed on cold surfaces using high-resolution electron energy loss spectroscopy (HREELS) and infrared reflection absorption spectroscopy (IRAS). The experiments of IRAS are performed at the surface science station of the infrared beamline BL43IR of SPring-8.
  2. Spectroscopy and morphology of nanometer structure created on the surfaces of various material by the irradiation of highly charged ions (HCI). The HCI are produced by an electron beam ion trap (EBIT) at Institute of Laser Science of University of Electro-communications (ILS-UEC). The analysis is performed at Kansai Advanced Research Center of Communications Research Laboratory and ILS-UEC.
