[Our missions]

*Discovery of novel superconductors with a high-Tc temperature and/or unconventional SC.
*Discovery of novel thermoelectric materials.
*Discovery of other functional materials, which will solve energy problems.
*Clarification of (local) crystal structure and physical properties.
*Anomalous thermal expansion materials
*High-entropy superocnductors and thermoelectric materials

To address those missons above, we focus on oxides, chalcogenides, pnictides, & intermetallic compounds with a layered structure,
anomalous electronic states, or structural fluctuations.
Of course, other interesting materials are welcomed!
