(This article is a reprint of an original published on 06/21/2022) Yoichi Yamada, Associate Professor, and Soichiro Takeiri, Associate Professor, in the Department of Pure and Applied Mathematics, University of Tsukuba, in collaboration with Keiki Fukumoto, Project Associate Professor, Institute for Materials Structure Science, High Energy Accelerator Research Organization (KEK), have successfully visualized the movement of conduction electrons in organic transistors under operating conditions using a femtosecond photoelectron microscope (femtosecond photoemission microscope), using a femtosecond pulse laser as an excitation source. The team succeeded in visualizing the movement of conduction electrons in organic transistors under operating conditions. Precise measurement of electrons in organic materials is still a very difficult task, […]
Associate Professor Haneda et al. developed an electron diffractometer with a pulse width of less than 100 fs
(This article is a reprint of an original published on 06/02/2022) Associate Professor Haneda and his colleagues have developed a table-top size electron diffraction system that can observe structural changes occurring in less than one trillionth of a second (100 femtosecond) upon photoexcitation. The newly developed device is expected to contribute to the development of ultrafast and highly efficient materials for various optical devices such as optical memory and optical energy conversion in the future.
