Area of Interest/Research:

Dr. Yamaguchi’s research focuses on the synthesis of dithienylethenes, which show promise for light-induced switching processes. He is currently coupling this dithienylethene system with disubstituted fluorene and possibly perylene systems because of their favorable fluorescent properties and their ability to act as p- and n-type semiconductor materials.
