A technology that no one could have predicted 30 years ago, "a thin film of 0.1-micrometer organic materials is made to emit light by passing an electric current." It is possible to convert current into light with 100% internal quantum efficiency with skillful molecular and device design! In our laboratory, we have led the world and pioneered the science and technology of organic electroluminescence (OLED). Furthermore, we are advancing the research and development of innovative optoelectronics to open up the next-generation devices such as organic semiconductor lasers and organic/inorganic hybrid materials. In our laboratory, based on five basic science and technology (quantum chemical calculation/organic synthetic chemistry/device structure design/process control/optical/electronic device physical property analysis), we would like to establish exciton engineering theory. We aim to promote research that highly integrates the aspects of the basic and the applied research aspects of "creating organic optoelectronic materials and devices that realize high performance and high added value." Electronics is the core technology of the industry. Let's pioneer future science and technology together!
