Unraveling how magnets and superconductivity work in extreme environments

Electrons in materials cause magnetic force and superconductivity, but examining how these electrons behave is difficult. Our laboratory examines the structure of electrons inside a material by studying fluctuations in electrical conductivity and other changes under extreme environments, such as high pressure, ultra-low temperatures and strong magnetic fields. Our research focuses on organic superconductors, which are plastic-like materials with magnetic and superconductive properties.

For Society

In recent years, plans to make superconductor-based power transmission systems for practical use have come under consideration. Superconductors allow power transmission with less loss. In addition, magnetic substances are used in data storage media for computers. Materials with better properties need to be developed.
