The research topics of our group are development, characterization, and controls of performance of organic semiconductor devices using functional materials such as conducting π-conjugated polymers and oligomers.
We investigate the topics by fabricating organic devices such as field-effect transistors(FETs), thin-film solar cells, and light-emitting diodes (LEDs), and by using characterization methods such as electron spin resonance(ESR) and transport.
We promoted the projects such as Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST), PRESTO, Tsukuba Research Center for Interdisciplinary Materials Science (TIMS), and Pre Strategic Initiative, University of Tsukuba. Currently, we promote the projects such as JST, ALCA and Tsukuba Research Center for Enegy Materials Science (TREMS).
