New World of Materials in High Magnetic Fields

state-of-the-art experiments in pulsed magnetic fields

Magnetic fields directly act on spins, orbitals and phases of electrons, and hence, have been extensively used to explore fundamental properties of materials. Our world highest-class pulsed magnetic fields clearly bring out interesting features of various materials in the spotlight, e.g. high-Tc superconductors, quantum magnets, topological materials, and multiferroics. With using various state-of-the-art experimental techniques, we are developing experimental studies to open a new field of condensed matter physics in collaboration with many scientists being successful at the forefront.
