|Our research focus on p-electron materials, e.g. organic and nano-carbon materials. Our aim is to understand physical properties of these materials and to explore their novel functional devices. The current research interests include investigating transport and optical properties of carbon nanotubes, atomically thin materials, and conducting polymers. We also focus on device applications using these materials, such as transistors, thermoelectric devices, light-emitting (photo-detecting) devices, and 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 exploring novel functional materials to open new world.
Atomically thin materials, such as graphene, show drastic evolutions in their physical properties compared to conventional solids. We are investigating unique electronic and optical properties of these materials and exploring their new functionalities.
Conducting polymers are attracting much attentions as new electronic materials. We are trying to reveal fundamental tranport and spintronic properties of conducting polymers to demonstrate their electronic and thermoelectric devices.
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.
Organic materials are soft materials, and it allows us to control their electronic and magnetic properties via pressure (and strain). We are trying to establish new method for tuning electronic phase of organic materials by pressure control.
Nanomaterials and organic materials have flexibility and printability. Such unique mechanical properties might create new functional electronics. We are trying to realize flexible and/or printed devices based on these materials using unique device structure and fabrication process.
