Welcome to Emergent Functional Polymer Research Team!
We work on the development of new organic semiconducting polymer materials and their application to organic electronic devices. Specifically, we seek the methodology and the molecular design to control the precise structures in molecular- and nano-scale at our will, and try to find breakthroughs to drastically enhance the performance of the organic electronic devices. Targets of our research are not only the conventional organic solar cells and field-effect transistors, but also the organic electronic devices with new functions based on the structure controls.
