Quantum Materials Science Unit (PI: Yoshinori Okada)
The broad objective of the researches in this unit is exploring novel physics in quantum materials, which also lead to future nano-electronics and nano-spintronics applications. Particularly, our unit focuses on topological materials, Dirac materials, 2D van der Waals materials, correlated systems, and high-Tc superconductors. Our strength is the capability of combining advanced material synthesis technique and ultra-high resolution single particle spectroscopies. This will allow us to design novel charge, spin, orbital, and/or phonon states in a variety of engineered quantum systems.
We are always looking for motivated postdoc, graduate student, and internship student to come to tropical Okinawa and do research in state-of-the-art labs with us.
Please contact contact me yoshinori.okada [at] oist.jp if you are interested.
Through cutting edge quantum materials research, we can provide great opportunity for young people to learn multiple skills, including bulk single crystal growth, epitaxial thin film growth, and state-of-the-art microscopies/spectroscopies.
