Research aimed at improving superconductor properties through better material manufacturing processes
In this laboratory, we discovered, for the first time in the world, that the metallic double chain cuprate Pr247 exhibits superconductivity after a reduction thermal treatment. My research is aimed at improving superconductor properties through better material manufacturing processes. I have also studied the relationship between physical frustration and the supergiant magnetoresistance effect in substances showing a magnetic field-induced insulator metal transition. As a result, I have discovered a step-like lattice deformation similar to martensitic transformation. I am considering applying this substance to shape memory materials and magnetic memory elements.
I educate students to be active in the global age with a broad scientific perspective, in an effort to establish foundational knowledge in the mathematics, physics, property basics, and superconductor science and engineering necessary for physical and material science and engineering and physics courses.
