Quantum Structural Physics in Correlated Matter
In recent years, it is known that topological insulators, topological semimetals, etc. undergo large physical property changes in small electric and magnetic fields, related to the even-oddity of wave functions and bands. However, its creation requires control of the Fermi surface, control of spin-orbit interaction, and control of space and time reversibility. We create and study pure topological materials by means of quantum structural physics.
As a specific topological material candidate, we are conducting precise structural analysis and measurement of low-temperature quantum properties of RTeSB and its peripheral material Mn3Si2Te6 .
