This research division aims to develop the environmentally harmonious, health-conscious, and human-friendly electronic device technologies that employ printing methods as low-temperature and large-area manufacturing process in conjunction with thin, light, bendable and reusable organic materials, and establish related practical innovations. This laboratory is engaged in all aspects of research and development activities ranging from materials, printing processes, equipment, electronic devices, circuits, and applications.
Collectively, these technologies make up our research competencies as applied to these activities:
■Synthesis of organic and metal nanomaterials having innovative
physical properties and superior performance.
■Building up the printing processes required to fabricate the organic
■Development of practical printed devices based on organic transistors.
■Development of organic integrated circuits, physical sensors, biosensors,
and information displays.
■New technologies to enable electronic layer patterning on curved
surfaces or three-dimensional objects.
