  Experimental Group for the Material Science at Extreme Conditions

We performed the generation of the combined extreme condition (high pressure, low temperature, and strong magnetic field) and measurements of physical-properties at the conditions. Educational research on the pressure-induced superconductivity under low-temperature and high-pressure, the magnetic phase transition under a low-temperature and strong magnetic field, and the crystal structure analysis under high pressure are done. There is a strong collaboration with the high-pressure division and the low-temperature division in the Research Center for Materials Science at Extreme Conditions, which has succeeded the long tradition of synthesizing new materials and studying their properties by means of the apparatus producing pressures exceeding 1 Mbar.
