Eiji Tokunaga received his Ph.D. degree in physics from the University of Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan, in 1992 under the direction of Prof. Takayoshi Kobayashi. The dissertation title was Femtosecond phase spectroscopy using frequency-domain interference.” In 1992, he served as an Assistant Professor in the Institute for Solid State Physics, University of Tokyo, where he was engaged in the study of excitonic polaritons and molecules in CuCl with Professor Masahiro Matsuoka. In 1996, Tokunaga joined ERATO Single Quantum Dot Project headed by Professor Yasuaki Masumoto, Japan Science and Technology Agency, Tsukuba, Japan. In 2000, he joined Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) Research for the Future Program, University of Tokyo. In 2002, he worked as a Junior Associate Professor in the Department of Physics, Faculty of Science, Tokyo University of Science, where he is now an Associate Professor. His current interests involve exciton physics, ultrafast spectroscopy, nonlinear optics, nanospectroscopy, and photophysics of organic material including photosynthesis. Tokunaga is a Member of the Physical Society of Japan and the Spectroscopical Society of Japan.
