Solid state physics, momentum-space topology in quantum matter
Hiroshima University, Graduate School of Advanced Science and Engineering, Physical Science, Associate Professor
Kuroda conducts research on spin-related functional materials using angle-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy (ARPES) with ultra-short pulse lasers and synchrotron radiation. He has discovered various types of topological phases in quantum materials, including topological insulators and magnetic Weyl semimetals. In these materials, Dirac and Weyl particles appear as quasiparticle excitations with helical and chiral spin textures in momentum space. In addition, Kuroda is actively developing novel ARPES techniques imaging three-dimensional spin textures directly.
