I have closed our laboratory due to retirement. D. student advising and carrying out research projects funded by Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research since 2023.
Our research includes the development of biodevices (photodetector with the visual function, position sensitive detector, and image filter mimicking receptive field) applying photosynthetic protein that resembles visual pigments. Using an inkjet printer, we also apply the protein and conductive polymers to photovoltaic elements.
