Materials Physical Chemistry

We synthesize novel organic molecules with excellent functionalities and create new electronic and optoelectronic devices based on the synthesized molecules. The molecular devices developed here include organic electroluminescence devices, organic field-effect transistors, and organic thin-film solar cells. We also work on solid-state fluorescent dyes and dye-sensitized solar cells. The development of a new technique to clarify the conduction mechanisms of molecular semiconductors is also underway.
