Pre-strategic Initiative
TIA NanoGreen

Yamamoto Laboratory has been started on November 2010.

In this laboratory, we are developing electronically-active nanomaterials consisting of π-conjugated organic molecules and polymers, and also focusing on energy and environmental issues with a broad outlook.

Now, undergraduate and graduate students are wanted.

If you are willing to do new researches, please contact me without hesitation. Then let us discuss about your plans.  Let’s set sail for a blue ocean of research with us.

(e-mail:, TEL: +81-29–853–5030)

What we do in our laboratory

  1. 1.Self-assembly of polymers and their optical and electronic properties.

  2. 2.Self-assembly of functional oligopeptides.

  3. 3.Construction and evaluation of organic semiconducting devices.

  4. 4.Dispersion and functionalization of carbon nanotubes and graphene.
