Research Summary
My research topics are;
(1) The development of new functional molecular conductors which can exhibit cooperative phenomena between several functionalities such as conductivity, magnetism and photofunctionalities. For example, we have developed several magnetic conductors such as κ-(BETS)2FeBr4 and TTFVS(O) systems which realized antiferromagnetic superconductors, magnetic-field-induced superconductivity, antiferromagnetic metals, negative magnetoresistance effects and so on. We also developed photoinduced conductors using TTF (tetrathiafulvalene) derivatives containing a fluorescent part such as 2, 5-diphenyl-1, 3, 4-oxadiazole, fluorene, 1, 3-benzothiazole and BODIPY (4,4-difluoro-4-bora- 3a,4a-diaza-s-indacene) molecules. We have observed photoinduced conductivities and photoelectric conversion functionalities in both their crystals and thin films.
(2) The development of new dye molecules for dye-sensitized solar cells. We have synthesized new D-pi-A dye molecules and fabricated solar cell devices using new dyes and investigated their performances. Especially we have focused on the development of new anchoring groups to be attached on titanium oxide particles.
