Strong Correlation Materials Research Group RIKEN Center for Emergent Matter Science
(Group Director:Yasujiro Taguchi)
The Strong Correlation Materials Research Group aims at studying emergent properties of materials and understanding their mechanisms. We develop new functionality based on the topology of magnetism in strongly-correlated electron materials, such as transition-metal oxides, intermetallic compounds, and layered materials. To this end, we search and synthesize a wide range of compounds using various methods, including CZ, FZ, and high-pressure techniques, and investigate their physical properties and response to external stimuli.
