About Nagai laboratory

It is said that the 21st century is the century of photonics, and so the role of photons in advanced science and technology has become more important. One is the use of conventional light, which has made progress in nanotechnology and materials science. This has created highly accurate and remarkable multifunctionalization in materials, and new concepts are produced one after another. Other new concepts are born from the emergence of 'new light', from the search for the ultimate physical properties for the intended application. At the Nagai Laboratory, we are working on research on photo-energy conversion materials in a wider sense. In particular, we aim to build light-energy conversion materials by assembling molecular integration for "creating the sun and utilizing sunlight", with a view to environmental and energy applications.
