Research themesThe condensed matter theory group covers a large area of solid state physics and statistical physics, based on two fundamental frameworks; quantum mechanics and statistical mechanics. Exotic, new and fundamental properties are of interest in highly correlated systems, soft materials, nano-materials, quasi-crystal and so on. In addition to analytical approach, we perform numerical calculations for non-equilibrium systems or for electronic systems using sophisticated techniques. Domestic and international collaborations with experimental groups or industries stimulate our activities significantly. Every member of this large group is available for discussions on a daily basis, thereby helping student to understand many aspects of current physics.
The following lists the research subjects for each groupmember. Further details can be found from the Web, or direct contact with group members can be made by e-mail.
Theory and simulation on the mesoscopic structures and their dynamics of soft materials such as polymers and surfactants.
Solid State Physics, Semiconductor Physics, Electronic properties of Carbon Nanotubes and Atomic-layer materials, Resonant Raman Spectroscopy, Surface Plasmon
Theory of strongly correlated electron systems, computer simulations of electronic and structural properties of solid.
collective phenomena and pattern formation in non-equilibrium and biological systems, nonlinear dynamics, synchronization, active matter
First-principles study and materials design. Especially, phenomena associated with electron-phonon interactions or spin-orbit interactions such as superconductivity, magnetism, and anomalous Hall effect.
Theory on phenomena emerging due to strong electron correlations and entanglement between multi-degrees of freedom such as spin and orbital.
Mesoscopic systems, nano-materials, such as carbon nanotubes, quantum dots, nano-mechanics
Photoinduced phenomena and ultrafast dynamics in strongly correlated electron systems.
Theoretical study of low-dimensional electron systems in semiconductors, especially, quantum Hall systems.
Polymer physics, rheology, nonequilibrium molecular dynamics, multiscale simulation.
Strongly correlated electron systems, especially, on high-temperature superconductivity, conductor-insulator transitions, magnetism, organic conductors, cold-atom systems, etc.
