Join us for research on next generation photovoltaic systems!

You are encouraged to join us in Division of Organic Solar Cell, Research Center for organic Electronics (ROEL), Yamagata University (Yonezawa-city, Japan) for research and development on next generation photovoltaic systems. Chances are many, open to the world, for students wishing to enroll the faculty of engineering, those for graduate school of science and engineering (master and PhD) and those for carrying out postdoc. There is also a new doctoral program for “Innovative Flex Course for Frontier Organic Material Systems”, in which one can receive a full 5 years support for both master and PhD degrees.

Those who wish to enroll the faculty of engineering, Yamagata University, please refer to the following website for detailed information (sorry ! Japanese only!)
(Tsukasa Yoshida is a professor in the department of chemistry and chemical engineering)

Those who wish to do postdoc
Please contact Yoshida for chances for project researcher positions. You are encouraged to apply for postdoc program from Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS). Our laboratory is fully equipped for carrying out research on various kinds of solar cells, organic, inorganic compounds, hybrid solar cells, and so on. Please consult with Yoshida for the research proposals.

About the research theme
Major research topics in Yoshida Lab. are the follows.
Electrochemical Self-Assembly of Nanostructured Inorganic/Organic Hybrid Thin Films and Their Applications
Flexible Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells Employing Electrodeposition and Printing
One-Pot Solar Cell Employing Self-Assembled Inorganic/Organic Hybrid Nanostructure by Turing Principle
Size and Structure Controlled Synthesis of Semiconductor Nanoparticles by Microwave Reaction
Development of Fast CO2 Electrolyzer for Conversion and Storage of Excess Clean Electricity

The laboratory is fully equipped for carrying out these studies. Also, the application of novel hybrid materials is not limited to solar cells, but can be used for various devices such as luminescence, rechargeable battery, sensors, electronic paper, etc… Those who wish to study topics else than solar cell are also welcome to join.

You are highly encouraged to visit our laboratory! Those who wish to visit us or with any questions, please contact Prof. Tsukasa Yoshida by e-mail.
