Exploring a new ground state with the control of fluctuations inside substances
Low temperature physics is an academic field aimed at studying the electric and magnetic states inside a substance by lowering the temperature to that of liquid helium (4.2K) or so and erasing noises caused by thermal oscillation. Our laboratory studies the behaviors of substances that exhibit large magnetic fluctuations – a phenomenon known as “quantum spin magnetism” – by subjecting them to a strong magnetic field or extremely low temperatures. We aim to find new states of substances and examine how such states occur.

For SocietyCondensed matter physics is a field of basic research, but it has no boundaries with materials sciences. Superconductivity was applied to the superconductor magnet about 50 years after it was discovered. We hope that the basic physics we study now will lead to engineering applications.
- Studying the effects of the randomness of quantum spin dimer magnetism
- Exploring magnetic characters of kagome lattice magnets at the micro-level
- Observing magnet-induced phase transitions of quantum magnets
