Research Overview

We have been interested in “soft matter nanofabrication; the construction of soft nanostructures in large area” to realize potential applications such as organic opto-electronics, multi-functional surfaces, and advanced displays.

In order to control various kinds of self-assembled nanostructures of soft materials, we use mechanical shearing, photo-irradiation, surface treatment, electric field and topographical confinements.

Nano-characterization of controlled nanostructures is also significant for our goal, thus we use the convolution methods including microscopes (polarizing, fluorescent, laser scanning confocal microscopes, electron microscopes, and atomic force microscope) and diffraction tools (X-ray diffraction with a synchrotron radiation). Our final goal is to conduct a full system from synthesis, fabrication, and characterization of soft matters for the various applications mentioned above.
