About Group.

To discover novel electron phases from artificial oxide interfaces, most world-leading groups are currently taking approaches by varying parameters, such as charge transfer, orbital and electronic reconstructions, strain variation, and dimensionality control. In addition to taking such efforts, we propose to perform more creative research by including three other control parameters: spin-orbit coupling, strain gradient, and defect control.

Oxide heterostructures present a tremendous opportunity for realizing new artificial electronic phases through controlled synthetic routes. Taking advantage of these opportunities raises challenges for theory, for synthesis, and for measurements. Note that the physical phenomena occurring at oxide interfaces will be significantly different from those inside bulk materials. Our combined efforts by several experimental groups and a theory group will enhance our understandings on the couplings between many degrees of freedom through oxide interfaces. If successful, it will provide a new paradigm for condensed matter physics.

In addition, the findings from our studies will become a basis for practical applications. For example, the structure–property relationships, which will continue to emerge from this understanding, are likely to be used by electrical and chemical engineers for the design of wholly new electronic architectures and green-energy technologies. Therefore, our studies will provide a new platform to invent new electronic devices.
