About us


Liquid crystal displays (LCDs) are familiar as information display devices for televisions, personal computers, mobile phones, game consoles, etc. LCDs are probably the most successful "organic devices" of any electronic device. Kimura Lab has been conducting basic research on LCDs for many years. From that experience, we are also researching not only LCDs but also organic thin-film solar cells and batteries. In the spirit of technology, let's unravel the universal laws of technology hidden in electronic devices, break through technological barriers, and bring about new innovations together.


  • We have the utmost respect for student independence. We will value the steps of making a research plan by yourself and coming up with ideas and putting them into practice.
  • I hope that you will improve your communication skills in English. We actively publish the research results obtained at international conferences and strive to submit them to English academic journals.
  • Technology is advancing day by day, and I do not know what kind of technology will be involved in society after graduating from this university. In the laboratory, we are conducting research activities with the aim of developing human resources who can flexibly respond to new technologies by learning all about software, hardware, manufacturing, analysis, and presentations.
