Content of research

“Molecular excitation chemistry” based on photo- and radiation- induced chemistry of organic and inorganic compounds has been investigated from both basic and application points of view. The following research projects are underway with respect to developments of photo- and radiation-controlled chemistry and bioscience, functional materials, ultra-sensitive analytic and diagnostic methods.

Current Research Programs

  • 1. Formation and reactivity of reactive intermediates in photochemistry and radiation chemistry, and photochemistry of reactive intermediates
    2. Multi-laser chemistry with multi-step irradiation by two-color two lasers, three-color three lasers, and electron pulse-laser
    3. Charge transfer mechanism during TiO2 photocatalytic reactions
    4. Single-molecule fluorescence measurements to study dynamic motions and reactions of DNA, RNA, and peptides
    5. Single-molecule chemistry
    6. Kinetic analysis based on the control of fluorescence blinking
