The investigation into the fundamentals of functional materials are of paramount importance. Itoh-Taniyama group is at the forefront of functional advanced materials research. The group is investigating novel physical and chemical properties of ferromagnets, ferroelectrics, piezoelectrics, phosphors, ionic conductors, etc, and designing a new functionality in electronic devices. The group is also exploring the fundamentals of nanomagnetism and magnetic/ Semiconductor/ ferroelectic heterostructures which underpin the emerging field of spintronics. We welcome any prospective students or researchers to contact the group concerning research in functional advanced materials.
Harmony of Solid State Science and Electronics
Science of oxides needs the knowledge of the crystal chemistry. and solid state chemistry and science. Our group's member can command a bird's eye view of structure and properties of oxides and the application to the electronics.
