Experimental research on magnetic property of rare-earth compounds and thermal property of clathrate compounds. Macroscopic measurements and neutron scattering experiments are performed to reveal origins of new phenomena.
Studies of the thermal, transport and magnetic properties of rare-earth and transition-metal compounds under high pressures. Main research subjects are pressure-induced quantum critical phenomena of heavy-fermion systems, anomalous magnetism in geometrically frustrated systems under pressure, and pressure dependence of the quasi-localized vibrational modes in clathrates.
Single crystal growth of new rare-earth compounds and measurements for magnetic/thermal properties at very-low temperature mainly below 1 K, to find exotic phase transition and anomalous metallic state.
