In this research, novel nano-carbons such as fullerene, carbon nanotube, grapheme, and so on, are synthesized with structure (diameter, length, etc.) control using plasmas. Furthermore, by means of encapsulating other atoms or molecules inside the nano-carbons, new functionalized materials which have the properties of superconductor or magnetic semiconductor. Up to now, a nano-sized diode which contains an n-type and p-type semiconducting junction is successfully formed by means of encapsulating alkali metals as the electron donor and halogen atoms as the electron acceptor alternately inside the semiconducting carbon nanotube.
Furthermore, by using these novel functionalized materials, electronic devices with high efficiency and performance (energy conversion devices such as solar cell, transistor, superconducting device, optical device, quantum computing device, and so on) are developed.
We are prepared to provide academic consultations to companies interested in our research.
