In this innovative area research supported by MEXT, we will promote new collaborations between researchers from different fields, to clarify and control the physical properties of novel electronic states in quantum materials that have similarities to liquid crystals, which we call “Quantum Liquid Crystals (QLCs)”.
Toward elucidation and control of QLCs
4 approaches to study physical properties of QLCs
