Emergent electronics / spintronics based on new materials

Our research group attempts to develop novel electronic and spintronic functions through the exploration of new materials from the viewpoint of topology and symmetry. Usually, the behavior of electrons is controlled by the external electric and magnetic fields. On the other hand, in materials with topologically nontrivial ordered structures, electrons feel giant “emergent” electromagnetic fields due to the curved geometry, and their effective use can dramatically change the way to control electron dynamics. We design and synthesize new material systems to realize such unique quantum phenomena originating from nontrivial topology and symmetry. By employing the state-of-the-art crystal growth and micro-fabrication techniques, we develop novel electronic functions potentially suitable for various applications such as information processing with ultra-low energy consumption or sensing with ultra-high sensitivity.
