To develop highly functionalized materials for various applications such as electronic devices, solar cells, highly efficient fuel cells, organic devices, and so on,it is important to clarify behaviors of electrons and atoms in materals in detail.

However, it is often difficult to elucidate such microscopic phenomena experimentally.

To this end, we employ first-principles computer simulations and observe electrons and atoms in atomic scale and predict properties of new materials. We develop computer simulation programs based on Quantum Mechanics and by using those programs on super computers, we investigate physical and chemical properties of materials and clarify the origins for those properties.

Based on these investigations, we propose important factors to desing new efficient materials and contribute to fields related to industry, energy and enviroment which are important in fugure of our society.
