Division of Condensed Matter Science

Discoveries of new materials, for example, high temperature superconductors, organic superconductors, graphene, and topological insulators, have often opened new horizons in materials science. Application of extreme conditions of low temperature, high pressure, and high magnetic field have also revealed various unexpected properties of matters, such as superconductivity and quantum Hall effect. The goal of the Division of Condensed Matter Science is to uncover novel phenomena that lead to new concepts of matter, through combining the search for new material and the precise measurements under extreme conditions.

Each group in this division pursues its own research on synthesis of new materials and high quality samples, or on precise measurements of electric, magnetic, and thermal properties, based on their own free ideas. Their main subject is to elucidate various phenomena which emerge as a concerted result of electron correlation, frustration, symmetry, topology, and molecular degrees of freedom, in various materials such as organic conductors, atomic layer (two-dimensional) materials, and topological materials.
