Interfacial Energy Conversion Group

last update 4, June 2019

Our interest is the chemical reactions at solid/liquid interface where electron transfer plays a key role. We study basic research on electrode catalysis, rechargeable battery-related electrode reactions. We are also intrest in photoenrgy conversion sytem such as organolead-halide perovskite materials for low-cost solar cells and next-generation PV. To understand those enegy conversion systems we also construct and apply in-situ laser spectroscopy system to study the interface structure and dynamics and to contribute to resolving the energy issue.
