Primarily millimeter and sub-millimeter wave spectroscopy of low-dimensional conducting and magnetic molecular systems in high magnetic fields, including various magnetic resonance techniques such as Electron Spin Resonance (ESR) and Cyclotron Resonance (CR). Also magnetotransport, magnetometry and magnetocalorimetry studies of the same systems.

Our recent research topics are the following:

    •Studies of the Molecular Spin Liquid Materials by ESR

    •Ground state of the Molecular Dual-electron System

    •Condensed Matter Physics using Nano-carbon Materials

    •Development of the High-sensitive ESR Measurements System


We are studying condensed matter physics of molecular materials by use of ESR spectroscopy. ESR is one of sensitive measurements where microscopic information, such as the electronic states and spin dynamics etc., of unpaired electrons can be obtained. We welcome graduate students from all around the world who are interested in condensed matter physics of strongly correlated materials or in the instrumentation of the ESR spectroscopy. All your studies and research will be done in RIKEN (Wako-shi, Saitama).

There is a Junior Research Associate (JRA) program in RIKEN, which provides part-time positions for energetic and open-minded graduate students. Candidates must be enrolled (or scheduled to be enrolled) in a doctoral course of Hokkaido university. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you are interested in.
