HASHIMOTO Light Energy Conversion
Research Director: Dr. Kazuhito Hashimoto
Research Term 2006-2011
 
Outline of Research

  The Hashimoto Light Energy Conversion Project is concerned with the design, development and optimization of materials and devices involved with the conversion of light energy into a useful form. By incorporating aspects of bioscience with materials science and purpose-orientated basic research, it aims to create materials and systems that can be used as a basis to help solve the impending world energy crisis.

  The project focuses on the following three research areas:

  (1) The creation of high-efficiency organic thin film solar cells.

  (2) The construction of robust, artificial, inorganic photosynthetic nanodevices

  (3) Microbial energy conversion in self-propagating solar and fuel cells and environmental cleanup device development
