As we develop next-generation electronic devices, it is crucial to consider not only the compatibility of these devices with the environment but also the demands for diverse functions stemming from the rapid structural changes taking place in our society. Organic semiconductor devices are attracting attention as a promising candidate to meet these requirements due to their simple, inexpensive production processes, low environmental burden, and flexibility. The scope of our research ranges from basic scientific studies on materials chemistry and charge transport physics in organic semiconductor interfaces to device functionalization and the engineering of organic semiconductors.|
1. Development of high-performance organic devices and accompanying matrix arrays.
2. Synthetic chemistry to develop high-performance organic semiconductors.
3. Fundamental charge transport mechanisms in high-mobility organic semiconductors.
4. Interfaces of organic hetero-junctions: development and functions of their two-dimensional electronic states.

|Messages to Students|
It is always inspiring to see our students become so confident within just a few years of starting their research projects through the process of thinking, becoming excited, collaborating with others, and reporting for the society. The origin of their success and confidence lies within their own efforts. It is our wish that all of you continue to feel satisfaction with what you gain in the laboratory.|
