Development of Novel Electronic Materials Utilizing Light Elements

Research Project Outline

We develop novel electronic materials without rare metals or toxic elements by utilizing light elements, such as B, C, N and F, which would substantially modify the crystal structures and band structures of solids. In order to accelerate the element substitution in a strategic manner, we attain new functionalities which are not accessible by conventional materials. Our special focus is on In-free transparent conductors whose work functions and refractive indices are well controlled and Pb- or rare earth-free ferroelectric materials which respond to visible light.
