High pressure technique has a great advantage in synthesizing novel electronic materials. However, this technique has a disadvantage in improvement of their functions due to the difficulty in controlling their physical properties and preparing single crystals for detailed measurements. In this research project, making use of the “ion-conductive nano-space” in between the functional crystal lattice, novel electronic functions in the metastable high-pressure phase will be effectively explored by the combination of high-pressure technique and soft chemistry.
