Primary research topic is ‘photovoltaic materials and devices’. The goal of the research is (i) to understand fundamental principles of photovoltaic process and find new concepts of photo-electric conversion, (ii) to study how material properties affects the photovoltaic process, and (iii) to develop new materiasynthetic processes to maximize the solar cell power conversion efficiency. Current research topics include chalcopyrite polycrystalline thin-film solar cells, organic solar cells, ‘amorphous silicon solar cells, charge transfer mechanism of DNA, and ‘optical properties of metal nanoparticles.
