Hiroshi Kitagawa [Professor]

I am interested in cooperative quantum properties that protons and electrons show in solid materials, such as ferromagnetism and superconductivity. Recently, I am also interested in investigating hydrogen storage, super-protonic conductivity and the photolysis of water. This focus covers a wide range of materials, from organic to inorganic matter, such as transition metal complexes, metal nanoparticles, coordination polymers and mixed-valence compounds.

comment:I grew up in Osaka and I was born and raised Kawachi.The period that I do not live there is only eight years.People says that I talk like a comic dialogist.My motto:"If you light a candle for others, your way will be also lighted."


Shozo Kinoshita [Visiting Fellow]

comment : I had been involved in research and development as a company worker for a long time. From this experience, I learned following thing ; "If you attach too much emphasis to theories, you will be restricted with past. But if you place importance on experiments, you will find a way."
