Tsuyoshi Takami has completed his PhD in 2007 from Nagoya University and worked as a Postdoctoral Researcher at University of Texas at Austin. He was the editor of Nanothermoelectrics. He has published more than 35 papers in reputed journals such as PRL, PRB, and APL and a comprehensive review book titled “Functional Cobalt Oxides: Fundamentals, Properties, and Applications” in the CRC Press, Taylor & Francis Group.
Dr. Takami’s research interests focus on design and synthesis of strongly correlated electron systems including superconductors, spintronic/orbitronic materials, and thermoelectric materials. He has emphasized the relationship between electronic degrees of freedom, i.e., charge, spin, and orbital, and physical properties of transition-metal oxides. Over the past several years, he has clarified the mechanism of a large thermoelectric power and an appearance of superconductivity observed for cobalt and copper oxides, respectively. These subjects have mainly investigated by measuring the transport properties in conjunction with microscopic techniques such as NMR and μ+SR. His strategy would bring about an important clue to explore functional materials.
