Educational background

Ph.D. (Physical Chemistry), Graduate University for Advanced Studies

Key words for education

Physics, Physical Chemistry, Spectroscopy

Sample courses

Modern Physics, Molecular Spectroscopy

Features of my courses

In the course of Modern Physics (Senmon-kiso), lectures are first presented and then various problems and quizzes are given for exercise, with some discussions followed up. In the course of Molecular Spectroscopy (Senmon-kadai), there are also experimental and computational practices besides lectures and exercises.

Key words for research

Molecular Spectroscopy, Vibration-Rotation Spectrum, Interstellar Molecule, Atmospheric Molecule
