This laboratory was established in January 2010 at Kagoshima University in order to study basic magnetism and magnetoscience. The instruments of the laboratory will be superconducting magnets, a electron spin resonance system, DSC&DTA-thermal analysis, high pressure equipments, a extraction-type magnetometer, arc-furnace, etc. Four master course students and three undergraduate students study in this laboratory.
I expect fulfilling research life to students desiring to join this laboratory!
High magnetic field, Field induced structural transformation, High field x-ray diffraction, High pressure magnetization measurements, Ferromagnetic shape memory alloys, Magnetic refrigerant, Magnetocaloric effect, Martensitic transformation, large magnetoresistance of magnetic Heusler alloy, Field-induced first-order ferromagnetic transitions, Magnetic phase transition, Antiferromagnetic resonance, Cyclotron resonance, Magnetic resonance, Magneto science, High field magnet technology,
