Features
We have been exploring novel thermoelectric materials. Functions of a solid substance primarily depend on the electronic structure, directly derived from its crystal structure. Through high-quality structure analyses using neutron and X-ray diffraction, combined with first-principles calculations, we have been fabricating materials with desired functions. To date, more than 40 novel materials have been discovered based on our guiding principles.

Targeted Application(s)/Industry
For developing future device technologies, challenges on thin-film thermionic multilayers and organic thermoelectric materials are currently underway.
