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 can accept graduate students. Prospective graduate students should apply for Department of Applied physics (Admission information). We can support postdoc candidates who apply for JSPS fellowship (for details, see JSPS website ). Contact Takahiro (morimoto _at_ ap.t.u-tokyo.ac.jp) if you are interested.
