    Quantum Physics of Solids Area

    Professor KAKESHITA Tomoyuki   Associate Professor FUKUDA Takashi   Associate Professor SATO Kazunori   Associate Professor TERAI Tomoyuki
    In our group, effects of high magnetic field, high pressure, high stress, low temperature and their combinations on structural transformation and magnetic transition have been studied. Since phase stability depends on external fields, we can control the crystal structure, microstructure and magnetic state of materials by using external fields. In addition, we perform computational design of new functional materials based on the first-principles calculations.

    Physics of Surface and Interface Area

    Professor NAKATANI Ryoichi   Associate Professor SHIRATSUCHI Yu   Assistant Professor NOMURA Hikaru
    From the perspective of fundamental properties of surface/interface physics, we have performed education and researches to improve the electron-determinate functionalities, including magnetism/electron transport/tunneling properties, of nanomaterials; metallic thin layers/multilayer films/artificial lattices/nano-magnets. Also being studied were developments of technique to clarify the surface/interface properties using microscopy which provides the atomic scale information.

    Materials Physics Area

    Professor ARAKI Hideki   Associate Professor MIZUNO Masataka   Assistant Professor SUGITA Kazuki
    Positrons allow us to examine the atomic-scale internal structure of materials. We have examined the origin of excellent properties of metallic materials such as hydrogen storage alloys and aluminum alloys in automotive applications and ceramics materials such as perovskite-type metal oxides, by using positron annihilation spectroscopy and computer simulation in order to design new materials.

    Materials Nanoprocess Science Area

    Professor YASUDA Hidehiro   Associate Professor SATO Kazuhisa   Assistant Professor KOBAYASHI Keita
    This research area is studying the relation of materials properties with the microstructures based on the experimental information in nanometer spatial scale and nanosecond time-scale by using transmission electron microscopes or electron spectroscopes. The research subjects are concerning materials design by elucidating inhomogeneity such as lattice defects, low dimensionality, non-equilibrium states formed by electronic excitations, and so on. We are educating and researching to investigate universal principles in materials science.
