Compounds with lanthanoid and actinoid elements exhibit interesting physical properties including heavy fermion, exotic superconductivity, quantum criticality and so on. These properties have been known to originate from subtle interplay between electron correlation of f electrons and hybridization of f electron and conduction electrons, and the understanding of the mechanism is one of the important issues in condensed matter physics. In this project, we extensively utilized advanced photoemission spectroscopy, such as soft x-ray and laser photoemission spectroscopy to f electron systems, and revealed f-electron Fermi surfaces and band dispersions as well as fine structures near the Fermi level, which lead to deeper understanding of the physical properties.
