Synthesis, structural analyses, and elucidation of a structure-property relationship of hyper-ordered structures toward a development of emergent functionalities.

(1) Multi-tunable dielectrics with a variety of response properties for electric, optical, and mechanical stimuli. Dielectric materials for next-generation   capacitors of excellent reliability at high-temperatures.
(2) Novel Superconductors and electronic materials with unique electronic states.
(3) Excellent electron-transport properties functional catalysts and Metalloproteins.
(4) Materials and functionalities explorations for the targets (1) – (3) under high-pressures.

Providing high-quality single crystals to the A02 group, feeding back the obtained insights to the A03 group, and pushing practical applications with the A01-2 group.
