NEW MATERIALS RESEARCH LEADS TO THE DISCOVERY OF NEW PHENOMENA. BY LEARNING THE STATE OF ART TECHNIQUES OF BOTH SYNTHESIS AND LOW TEMPERATURE MEASUREMENTS, YOU MAY DISCOVER YOUR OWN MATERIAL, WHICH SHOWS NEW FUNCTIONS, PAVING A PATH FOR NEW TECHNOLOGY.
The discovery of new phenomena is at the forefront of research in condensed matter physics. This is particularly true for the inorganic materials, which provide an important basis in current electronic and information technology. They have been central subjects of basic research because quantum correlations among the Avogadro numbers of electrons lead to exotic macroscopic phenomena such as superconductivity, quantum Hall effect, and quantum criticality. Thus, the search for new materials that exhibit new characteristics is one of the most exciting and important projects in the materials research. We have synthesized new materials in so-called strongly correlated electron systems including transition metal compounds and heavy fermion intermetallic compounds. Our interest lies in macroscopic quantum phenomena such as novel quantum criticality, exotic superconductivity and quantum spin liquid in magnetic semiconductors.
