We recently found single-atom-layer superconductors, and suppression of backscattering of carriers at topological surfaces, etc.

A4 Kensuke KOBAYASHI Institute for Physics of Intelligence Recent progress in nanotechnology enables us to directly address quantum behavior of electrons in nano-devices made of metal or semiconductor. The advantage of this research field, which is called "mesoscopic physics" or "nanophysics", lies in the various controllability and the versatile degrees of freedom in the device design. We explore this field to understand, predict, and control various novel quantum, many-body, and nonequilibrium effects in nano-devices in terms of the dynamical aspects of electron behavior.
A4 Takeshi KONDO The Institute for Solid State Physics The angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES) is a powerful technique to visualize the band structure. With the spin-resolved technique, we can identify the spin-polarized character of the band. In addition, the time-resolved ARPES realized with a pump-probe technique can track the reordering process of electron system from its nonequilibrium state. In our laboratory, we utilize these various ARPES techniques and explore novel electronic states of matter. Furthermore, we develop a new ARPES machine capable of achieving both the lowest measurement temperature and the highest energy resolution in the world by innovating a 3He cryostat and a laser source.
A4 Iwao MATSUDA The Institute for Solid State Physics We develop new spectroscopy techniques using synchrotron radiation and X-ray free electron laser.

A4 Tohru OKAMOTO Department of Physics okamotoアット We study low temperature electronic properties of low-dimensional systems, including the quantum Hall effect on semiconductor surfaces and the superconductivity of monolayer films.
A4 Akito SAKAI Department of Physics Strong correlation between electrons can induce non-trivial electronic states. One of the famous examples is Tomonaga-Luttinger liquid in the interacting one-dimensional electron system. Similarly, such a “strange metal”, where the quasiparticle picture does not hold, can also appear in the three-dimensional system. We find out the ideal system which can be described by a simple Hamiltonian at low temperature, and perform various experiments such as specific heat, magnetization, electric and thermal transport, and magnetostriction. Our goal is to reveal novel quantum states induced by the entanglement.
