Division of Condensed Matter Science

newmaterials_photoDiscoveries of new materials have often opened new horizons in materials science. High temperature oxide superconductors, carbon clusters, nanotubes, graphene, and organic conductors are good examples. Materials under extreme conditions such as low temperatures, high pressure, and high magnetic field demonstrate unusual electronic states. New materials also lead to the future development of new devices and technologies. The goal of the Division of Condensed Matter 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.

One of the subjects of our current intensive research is the effects of strong electronic correlation, in particular, novel phenomena related to topological, multipoles, molecular degrees of freedoms in transition metal oxides, heavy electron systems, and organic conductors. Here, various advanced experimental techniques are employed, such as materials syntheses, fabrication of monoatomic layer and nano structures, structural characterization, transport, magnetic and calorimetric measurements, and nuclear magnetic resonance under low temperatures, high pressure, and high magnetic field.
