Division of New Materials Science
  Discoveries of new materials have often opened new horizons in materials science. High temperature oxide superconductors, carbon clusters and nanotubes, and organic conductors are good examples. New materials also lead to the future development of new devices and technologies. The goal of the Division of New Materials Science is to uncover novel phenomena that lead to new concepts of matter, through combined efforts of search, synthesis and characterization of new materials. Currently, our division consists of six groups. Although each group has its own research style and projects, we try to maintain close collaboration between those groups working on production of high quality materials and those working on advanced technology for measuring physical properties. In particular, we keep strong collaboration with the Materials Design and Characterization Laboratory. One of the subjects of our current intensive research is the effects of strong electronic correlation, in particular, various ordered phases and fluctuations involving spin, charge and orbital degrees of freedom, in transition metal oxides, heavy electron systems, f-electron compounds and organic conductors. Here, various advanced experimental techniques are employed, such as high-pressure synthesis, structural characterization, transport, magnetic and calorimetric measurements, nuclear magnetic resonance and optical measurements..
