Lighter, thinner, more flexible…
Designing and synthesizing new organic semiconductor materials

OGAWA Satoshi (Professor)

Our advanced information society is supported by inorganic semiconductors made mainly from silicon. Although advancements have made these far lighter and more compact than before, there is a demand for even more improved functionality - semiconductors that are lighter, thinner, and more flexible. To respond to these needs, we are now conducting research into the design and synthesis of organic semiconductor materials. If we can design, synthesize, and control functional molecules, and establish their applications to electronics, it will be possible to build better next-generation devices with larger area and more flexibility for a lower cost.
