Our Vision is to investigate distinctive quantum systems from nanoscale to strongly correlated electron materials, which aims both to provide a fundamental understanding and to achieve ultrafast manipulation of cooperative quantum phenomena from "simplicity" to complexity. This involves the development and applications of cutting-edge ultrafast laser spectroscopy and nano-imaging techniques over a wide frequency spectrum, spanning from terahertz to ultraviolet to understand quantum non-equilibrium processes and many-body correlation effects. Our accomplishments, particularly in coherent and non-equilibrium dynamics of driven quantum systems, provide the linkage between different communities and merge various scientific disciplines to break new frontiers.
