Physics in Multiple Extreme Conditions Laboratory

Unraveling how magnets and superconductivity work in extreme environments

Interaction between electrons in solids cause curious physical phenomena such as superconductivity and magnetic ordering. Applying pressure is one of the effective way to tune the lattice constant and the interaction between electrons, thus varying the physical properties of materials. Our group investigates the change in the electronic properties under extreme conditions, such as high pressure, low temperature and strong magnetic field using magnetics and transport measurements.
