Welcome to Morimoto group!

We are a research group studying condensed matter theory at Department of Applied Physics, University of Tokyo. We are interested in novel quantum phenomena that are realized by topological materials. We use analytical methods such as quantum field theory, combined with some numerical simulations. Our research interests include:

  • Topological phases of matter (Topological insulators, Weyl/Dirac semimetals)
  • Nonlinear optical/transport phenomena (Shift current, nonreciprocal current response)
  • Nonequilibrium phenomena (Floquet theory, Keldysh formalism)

Opportunities :

We are seeking new members! We welcome application of motivated graduate students (Admission information). We can support postdoc application for JSPS fellowship. Contact Takahiro (morimoto _at_ ap.t.u-tokyo.ac.jp) for more information.
