Research Directions

Our research group exploits the following two important research themes in the field of quantum materials and devices expected from the new quantum states of matters.

One focuses on quantum materials, such as topological insulators, itinerant antiferromagnetic materials and two-dimensional (2D) materials. In topological materials, quantum Hall and quantum anomalous Hall effect, and superconductivity are explored by employing high quality single crystal thin films of three-dimensional topological insulators, graphene and other 2D materials grown by vapor phase epitaxy (VPE), exfoliation techniques and other useful methods. A variety of itinerant antiferromagnetic materials are studied in order to exploit novel cross-coupling phenomena between magnetism and charge current. Dirac and Weyl electronic states will also be studied in these materials. In addition to these fundamental quantum characteristics, applications arising from quantum materials, such astopological pn junction based on the Klein tunneling in the principles of quantum mechanics as well as energy conversions among spin momentum, heat flow and electric current are studied.

The other research exploits electrically driven lasers based on organic semiconductors in the field of quantum optoelectronics. By employing the device construction of both planar electroluminescence (EL) devices and field effect transistors (FET), lasers operating in the electrically driven mode are searched and high quality lasing in a wide wavelength is exemplified.
