The research topics of our group are development, characterization, and controls of performance of new semiconductor devices using functional materials such as conducting π-conjugated polymers and oligomers, perovskite, carbon materials, and transition metal chalcogenides.
We investigate the topics by fabricating electronic devices such as solar cells, light-emitting diodes (LEDs), and transistors, and by using characterization methods such as electron spin resonance (ESR), transport, and optics.
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 Pre Strategic Initiative, University of Tsukuba, JST Mirai, JST, ALCA, and Tsukuba Research Center for Enegy Materials Science (TREMS).
