New collaborative publication on fast photothermal actuator
Photothermally Driven High-Speed Crystal Actuation and Its Simulation
in J. Am. Chem. Soc. 2021.
I am glad with this successful collaboration with Prof. Koshima, which has started almost five years ago. Our transient absorption techniques from 100 fs to 10 s helped deep understanding on photothermal and photochromic processes in an organic crystal that works as a fast actuator.
A former master student, Daiki Yamanaka, and a current lab member, Dr. Tetsuro Katayama, made an important contribution.
