Masanao Era

Welcome to our home page. Our research group is small. However, we have made a lot of effort to become a top runner in the research areas of electronic and photonic materials using organic semiconductors and organic-inorganic nanohybrids, for example, solar cells, light emitting devices, nonlinear optical devices, laser and so on. We conduct wide range experimental research works from synthesis of materials to development of devices using the materials. We welcome collaboration from other researchers and companies, and we are delighted to give advise about research work issues and technical issues.
