Quantum Materials Group

Discovery of new materials, new phenomena, and new concepts has progressed condensed matter physics. A good example can be found in the history of research in strongly correlated electron systems, one of the major fields studied in ISSP. On the other hand, breakthroughs have been often made at an intersection of various different research fields. To facilitate another leap forward in our activity, the quantum materials group has been created to promote interdisciplinary studies based on the collaboration between the experimental and theoretical groups beyond the conventional research disciplines.

The quantum materials group currently consists of three core groups and nine joint groups. All these groups vigorously conduct collaborative research to discover novel quantum phases and functional materials in correlated electron/spin systems. The activities include new material synthesis in bulk and thin film forms and their characterization through state-of-art measurement systems. Device fabrication is also made for spintronics applications. These experiments are being conducted through lively discussion and tight collaboration with theory groups, which search for novel topological phases by using new theoretical approach and numerical methods.
