We are studying two-dimensional materials, such as graphene and boron nitride, which have layered structures with very thin, single-atom thickness. In spite of their atom-thick two-dimensional structures, they have excellent properties, such as very high electron mobility, transparency, and mechanical flexibility.
We are developing new methods to synthesize these two-dimensional materials, and also investigating their physical properties. In addition, we study applications to energy, environment, and electronics based on these two-dimensional materials. Our research work is further developed to industry based on open-innovation meeting and collaboration with many companies.
