In transition-metal compounds, various novel quantum phenomena emerge from the interplay of charge, spin, and orbital degrees of freedom with lattice vibration. Behind the phenomena, there are novel electronic states controlled by multi-scale dynamics over energy and space. It is, therefore, important to understand their electronic states by spectroscopic tools scanning a wide range of energy as well as real and momentum space. In this workshop, we will focus on recent development of angle-resolved photoemissionspectroscopy, inelastic neutronscattering, muon spin rotation/relaxation, inelastic x-ray scattering, and scanning tunneling spectroscopy performed for the study of transition-metal compounds.

In addition to energy- and space-resolved spectroscopy, we will focus on time-resolved spectroscopy in this workshop, because it provides non-equilibrium dynamics of electronic states after photo excitation and thereby gives information on the interplay of electrons and various types of fluctuations in transition-metal compounds. Actually, time-resolved spectroscopy is being advanced very quickly in the world followed by the development of, for example, femtosecond laser and free electron laser.
