About TRiKUC

The Toyota Riken – Kyoto University Research Center (TRiKUC) was established in April 2022 on Kyoto University’s main campus as a collaboration center between Toyota Physical and Chemical Research Institute and the Institute for Advanced Study of Kyoto University.

TRiKUC performs collaborative research on quantum material, especially on superconductors, with the aim of contributing to the advancement of basic science, fostering the next generation of research professionals, circulating outstanding research talent both within Japan and overseas, and sharing its research outcomes with wider society.

The research focuses on: (1) elucidation of unconventional superconducting states in the ruthenium oxide superconductor Sr2RuO4, (2) development of superconductors related to topological materials, and (3) novel physical properties induced under uniaxial pressure. TRiKUC is tackling these topcs by synthesizing new materials, growing ultrapure single crystals, developing uniaxial pressure apparatus, and measuring physical properties down to temperatures below 1 Kelvin. TRiKUC is also actively engaged in international collaborative research through the supply of single crystals.
