In our laboratory, we aim to realize highly efficient opto-electronic devices based on new exciting organic polymer materials. We are performing distinctive fundamental research for exploring new principle, material (dendrimer, hyperbranch, conjugated photonics polymers, molecules, and so on), chemical, physical property, and nano-photonic phenomenon (photonic crystals and nanophotonic devices), to aim dramatic improvements in the performance of optical electronic devices contributing for low-energy consumption society.
Based on these new material science and technologies, up to the present, we have successfully demonstrated high-efficient organic solid-state lasers, nonlinear optical devices, photonic management, and communication devices.
We want graduate students and postdoctoral researchers of Yokoyama Laboratory to be part of our activities to accomplish our goal.
