About our Laboratory
In our laboratory, we primarily study X-ray astronomy using Suzaku and other X-ray satellites. Also, we carry out near-infrared observations using ground-based telescopes. Our main research topics include Galactic high energy objects such as X-ray active stars and compact objects (black holes, neutron stars, white dwarfs), Active Galactic Nuclei, Ultra-luminous X-ray Sources, and Galactic ridge X-ray emission.
Our laboratory belongs to ISAS (Institute of Space and Astronautical Science), which is the sole institute dedicated for space science research in Japan. The staff in our laboratory (Ebisawa and Tsujimoto) had spent most career in the United States and Europe before coming to ISAS. We welcome international students and post-docs who are interested in X-ray astronomy and multi-wavelength observations of high energy objects.
