About Project

Organic solar cells have gained much attention because of their light-weight, flexible, low cost, and colorful design. In this laboratory, we synthesize novel electron donors and acceptors for high performance and stable organic solar cells and fabricate devices by use of our original molecules. In addition, we focus organic-inorganic hybrid solar cells and all-carbon solar cells by using carbon nanotubes as electrode.
