Fukami-Kanai Laboratory, Research Institute of Electrical Communication, Tohoku University

Homepage of Ohno-Fukami Laboratory (~2018/03) is here.

We have open postdoctoral positions. We will particularly welcome researchers who are interested in spintronics devices for unconventional computing hardware. If you have an interest, please contact Prof. Fukami (s-fukami_at_riec.tohoku.ac.jp).



Our paper "Large Exotic Spin Torques in Antiferromagnetic Iron Rhodium" by J. Gibbons, T. Dohi, V. P. Amin, F. Xue, H. Ren, J.-W. Xu, H. Arava, S. Shim, H. Saglam, Y. Liu, J. E. Pearson, N. Mason, A. K. Petford-Long, P. M. Haney, M. D. Stiles, E. E. Fullerton, A. D. Kent, S. Fukami, and A. Hoffmann was published in Physical Review Applied.


Professor Fukami was awarded the 2022 Achievement Award of the Magnetic Society of Japan for his achievement of "Development of new-functional spintronics devices and its application to unconventional computing". Congratulations!


Our paper "Anisotropic magnetotransport in the layered antiferromagnet TaFe1.25Te3" by R. Roy Chowdhury, S. DuttaGupta, C. Patra, A. Kataria, S. Fukami, and R. P. Singh was published in Physical Review Materials.


Dr. Samik DuttaGupta (received Ph.D. in 2016) resigned from the Assistant Professor of CSIS and left for India to be assigned to an Associate Professor of  Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics. We wish you great success!


Our paper "Local bifurcation with spin-transfer torque in superparamagnetic tunnel junctions" by Takuya Funatsu, Shun Kanai, Jun’ichi Ieda, Shunsuke Fukami, and Hideo Ohno was published in Nature Communications.
