RIKEN Center for Emergent Matter Science (CEMS)

Yoshinori  Tokura(D.Eng.) Director: Yoshinori Tokura (D.Eng.)

The aim of the research carried out at the Center for Emergent Matter Science (CEMS) is to address humanity's energy problems and contribute to building a sustainable society, able to coexist in harmony with the environment. Taking a pioneering role in the new field of emergent materials science, scientists at CEMS are developing new, more efficient technologies that will enable us to produce energy without putting a burden on the environment, as well as decrease our energy consumption. They achieve this by combining advanced research in physics, chemistry and electronics in order to produce new technology such as highly efficient energy conversion devices and low-consumption electronics.

Deputy Director: Naoto Nagaosa (D.Sci.), Takuzo Aida (D.Eng.), Masashi Kawasaki (D.Eng.) and Seigo Tarucha (D.Eng.)
Senior Advisor: Sadamichi Maekawa (D.Sci.)
