Structural Condensed Matter Physics Group 
Wakabayashi Lab.

We are doing structural condensed matter physics.
Origins of various properties of materials are examined 
from atomic arrangements, 
which are clarified by synchrotron x-ray diffraction.


What is the reason why we can learn the materials' property from the structure?
Think about the force applied to an atom at position r.
F is the r-derivative of U, the total energy of the solid.
Let us assume the atomic position is shifted a little. 
 If U increases, the displacement is pushed back,and
 if U decreases, the displacement is enhanced.
U is affected not only by the elastic interaction, 
but also by magnetism or other various electronic properties.
This is the reason why we can learn a lot from atomic arrangements.
