The Condensed Matter Experiment group studies quantum phenomena in strongly correlated electron systems, liquid Helium, topological materials, quantum spin systems, etc. Strongly correlated materials are systems in which the effect of the interaction between electrons becomes strong, and they frequently exhibit several exotic quantum phenomena, including high temperature superconductivity and spin-triplet superconductivity. Through the exploration of these emergent quantum phases and the understanding of the mechanism behind them, we try to open up new research fields in condensed matter systems.
Our research targets are various quantum phenomena such as unconventional superconductivity and superfluidity, quantum magnetism, quantum criticality, topological quantum phenomena, and we study these exotic phenomena by microscopic and macroscopic probes. Our research technique involves materials research, single crystal growth, fabrication of thin films, development of precise measurement technologies and micro-fabrication technologies, high-resolution measurements of electric, magnetic, and thermal properties, and nuclear magnetic resonance.

This group consists of three laboratories:

  • Quantum Materials
  • Quantum Condensed Matter
  • Low Temperature Physics

which are engaged in the above described research.
