Quantum Materials Science Unit (Yoshinori Okada)


Upcoming related workshop @ OIST (Link)

The 92nd IUVSTA workshop on APSSS-4 
Sep. 18 ~ Sep. 21, 2022  

Looking for Motivated Postdocs, Graduate Students, and Technicians!

We are always looking for motivated postdocs and graduate students to come to tropical Okinawa and do research in state-of-the-art labs with us. If you are interested, please feel free to contact Yoshinori Okada (E-mail: yoshinori.okada [at] oist.jp).
Through cutting edge research, we provide great opportunity for young people to learn multiple skills, including bulk single crystal growth, epitaxial thin film growth, and advanced microscopies/spectroscopies.


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.
