Explore New Materials and Physics

for Future Spintronics

research


Welcome to the website of the Ohya Research Group in The University of Tokyo. We are trying to explore new materials and physics for future spintronics by developing various single-crystalline thin films, heterostructures, and magnetic nano structures.

 

Research Interests

  • Ferromagnetic semiconductors
  • Ferromagnetic particles in semiconductors
  • Ferromagnetic quantum heterostructures
  • Spin-dependent transport
  • Magnetooptical properties
  • Coulomb blockade in ferromagnetic nano-particles in semiconductors
  • Oxide heterostructures
  •  

Research facilities


Molecular beam epitaxy (Epiquest Inc.)

We are mainly managing two MBE systems, in which we are growing different material systems.

     


 

300mK He-free cryostat (Janis Research Inc.)


 

Pump and probe measurement system

(We are developing the pump&probe system in collaboration with the Prof. Ohtsu and Prof. Yatsui Lab.)

 

Other facilities

We can use the facilities of Tanaka lab in the Dept. of Electrical Engineering and Information Systems. Also, we can use the Taketa clean room (class 1-1000) and the facilities of the Advanced Characterization Nanotechnology Platform (SEM, STEM, SQUID, PPMS, XRD etc).
