In rare earth and actinoid compounds, f electrons may possess multipole moments, the complex degrees of freedom composed of spin and orbital. Like a magnetic moment in magnetic materials, multipole moments may exhibit a long-range ordering and play an essential role in low temperature properties of materials. In this research project, various new aspects of the multipole-related phenomena have been investigated. In particular, novel superconductivity mediated by multipole fluctuations has been discovered.
