Research Summary

Satoshi Okamoto Yasujiro Taguchi Naoki Ogawa

Strong correlation materials have potential for exhibiting ultra-high performance, the likes of which have never been seen in conventional metal or semiconductor materials. Examples of industrial applications include next-generation memory, such as ultra-low power consumption ferromagnetic memory, as well as energy harvesting devices, which can efficiently convert ambient energy, into electric energy. we believe that strong correlation materials will become an essential technology in the next generation because they could contribute to both energy saving and energy generation. Accordingly, we will undertake the development of strong correlation materials and their production processes while conducting proof-of-concept research for environmentally-friendly devices.
