Research activities

Developing new materials for photo-energy conversion and thermoelectric energy conversion with high conversion efficiency and environmental
benignancy by take full advantage of the wide variety of physical properties of the materials from the viewpoint of materials science.
Hydrogen is expected to be used as green energy in the future. Our lab is focused on “solar-driven hydrogen production (photocatalytic water
splitting)”, which means the direct production of hydrogen from water by sunlight. In this vein, we are dedicated in the research of green
technology for ‘photochemical environmental cleanup’ and developing the new functional materials systems.
