|The research in our lab is centered on p-electron materials, such as organic molecules and nano-carbon materials. Our aim is to control and induce novel electronic and photonic responses in these materials. This work combines fundamental studies with forward-looking engineering efforts in a way that promotes positive feedback between the two. Our current research focuses on p-electron materials for novel materials, solid state physics, organic devices, flexible/printed electronics, and electrically driven organic lasers. If you are interested in our group, please contact us.
We always welcome domestic/international JSPS research fellows. Please see the following website for further information: more info

Novel materials can create new physics and new electronics. And, sometime, they change our daily life drastically. We are trying for synthesis of novel functional materials to open new world.
Nano-carbon materials, such as graphene, carbon-nanotube, and fullerene, are very interesting and different form conventional carbon materials. We are investigating physical properties of these materials for future carbon electronics.
Organic materials have unique properties, comparing with conventional inorganic materials, such as silicon. Based on the physical properties of organic materials, we are trying to design and to fabricate unique organic devices.
Organic materials have flexibility and printability. Such unique properties might create new electronics. We are trying to fabricate flexible and/or printed devices using π-electron materials.
One of the biggest advantages of organic materials is an excellent luminescent property, which is well known in organic light-emitting diode. However, the electrical driven organic lasers have not yet been realized. We are trying to realize first electrical driven organic laser.
