We investigate novel phenomena in strongly correlated electron systems by using optical spectroscopy exploiting the light-matter interaction, and aim at revealing the working principles and designing new functional devices. Following topics are currently being investigated: (i) magneto-electric phenomena, (ii) Mottronics, (iii) new physics related with a spin-orbit coupling, and (iv) optical manipulation of the material states using an intense THz radiation.
