Specialties Synchrotron Radiation X-ray Diffraction, Structural Physics
Keywords Synchrotron Radiation, X-ray Diffraction, Crystal Structure Analysis, Charge Density Analysis, Solid State Physics, Fullerene
Current Research We discuss physical properties of crystals from the atomic structure and charge density distribution determined by high resolution x-ray diffraction using synchrotron radiation from SPring-8. The recent research subjects are

(1) Development of methods for accurate x-ray structure analysis using synchrotron radiation
(2) Structure determination of endohedral metallofullerenes by single crystal charge density analysis
