Ba2NiOsO6: A Dirac-Mott insulator with ferromagnetism near 100 KDec 15 2016The ferromagnetic semiconductor Ba2NiOsO6 (Tmag ~100 K) was synthesized at 6 GPa and 1500 {\deg}C. It crystallizes into a double perovskite structure [Fm-3m; a = 8.0428(1) {\AA}], where the Ni2+ and Os6+ ions are perfectly ordered at the perovskite B-site. ... More

Fundamental physics activities with pulsed neutron at J-PARC(BL05)Dec 18 2017Jan 25 2018"Neutron Optics and Physics (NOP/ BL05)" at MLF in J-PARC is a beamline for studies of fundamental physics. The beamline is divided into three branches so that different experiments can be performed in parallel. These beam branches are being used to develop ... More

The status of KAGRA underground cryogenic gravitational wave telescopeOct 13 2017KAGRA is a 3-km interferometric gravitational wave telescope located in the Kamioka mine in Japan. It is the first km-class gravitational wave telescope constructed underground to reduce seismic noise, and the first km-class telescope to use cryogenic ... More
