Quantum Materials Science Unit (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.
