Speaker Biography (Tsuyoshi Sekitani)

Tsuyoshi Sekitani received the Ph.D. degree in applied physics from the University of Tokyo, Japan, in 2003. From 1999 to 2003, he was with the Institute for Solid State Physics (ISSP), University of Tokyo, where he developed measurement techniques in magnetic fields up to 600 T and studied the solid-state physics of condensed matter, especially in high-Tc superconductors. Since 2003, he has been a Research Associate of the Quantum-Phase Electronics Center, University of Tokyo, and started to work with Prof. Takao Someya. From 2009, he joined Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, The University of Tokyo. His current object of physics research is organic semiconductors and organic-FET devices. He is a member of the Materials Research Society (MRS), the Physical Society of Japan, and the Japanese Society of Applied Physics.

Company Profile (University of Tokyo)

Someya lab in the University of Tokyo has been dealing with Organic Electronics since 2003. Organic devices have attractive features; such as its ease to be fabricated on plastic films, its thinness and flexibility, and its extraordinary durability from banging and bending.
Our recent research focus is bio-medical application of organic devices. We aim to develop novel electronic devices that can harmoniously interface with living bodies by taking advantage of the inherent softness of organic materials and the remarkable features of organic molecules. Our next challenge is to expand them into "wearable electronics" and its beyond.
