Quantum Transport Properties Group

In strongly correlated electron systems, various fascinating phenomena such as superconductivity due to novel mechanisms emerge at low temperatures. We investigate the electronic structures of various superconductors and their related materials, and try to clarify the mechanisms of the superconductivity both experimentally and theoretically.

Specialized Research Field

Basic research on various superconductors and their related materials

In order to clarify the mechanisms of novel superconductivity, we perform systematic measurements of quantum oscillations, transport properties, photo-emission spectroscopy for various superconductors and their related materials. We are also seeking fundamental concepts underlying novel superconductors by utilizing analytical and computational methods.
