The development of thin-film secondary batteries and photovoltaics that make use of energy harvesting
In recent years, energy harvesting, which is garnering a lot of attention, has been used to convert light, heat, vibration, and radio wave energy into electrical energy, in order to drive devices without the need for power to be supplied through batteries, cables, etc. We strive to develop thin-film secondary batteries that store small amounts of power, and thin-film photovoltaics that generate energy with indoor light. By stable supplying small amounts of power to locations with no power sources, new functions are realized. Applications in various fields as maintenance-free power sources that are sustainable over the long term are anticipated.
Learning without thought is labor lost. Thought without learning is perilous.
I educate students to be active in the global age with a broad scientific perspective, in an effort to establish foundational knowledge in the basic physics, energy technologies, electronic devices, system control, and communication necessary for electric & electronic engineering.
