Division of Materials Science,Nara Institute of Science and Technology Photonic and Reactive Molecular Science Laboratory



Our research group has been dedicated for exploringnew functional molecular and nano-materials, including synthesis, characterization,and evaluation of various functional properties. Our attention has been focusedon photochemical functionality at the beginning, and recently more expanding forelectronic and thermal properties. Although molecular and nano-materials havebeen extensively studied, we still discover many of their unique and unexpectedproperties. We welcome students of high motivation for exploring advancedmaterials chemistry and photo-functional molecular chemistry. Our team involvesmany of members from overseas countries and regions and PhD students belong to theInternational Double Degree Program. TheNAIST-CEMES International Collaborative Laboratory at Toulouse, France, is alsosettled as our connected laboratory.
