About awarded research
“Quantum magneto-transport explored in Dirac semimetal Cd3As2 films”
This Ph.D. research work focuses on topological semimetals, which have been attracting attention as a material candidate providing potential breakthrough for new generation electronics. Based on high quality film samples of topological Dirac semimetal material Cd3As2, unique surface transport phenomena supporting three-dimensional quantized conduction has been experimentally clarified.
Your impression & future plan
It is a great honor to receive Inoue Research Award for Young Scientists. I would like to express my deepest gratitude to Professor Masashi Kawasaki, group members, and all other people who have made essential contribution to my Ph.D. research work. I still keep working on the topological materials research at different affiliation. I hope this prestigious award will give me further motivation and energy to continue on this journey.
