Thanks to your kind support, we colud carry out this symposium with great success.

The Scope of JAPAN NANO 2016 F

Electronics has enhanced functions and performances of devices by miniaturization, integration, and systemization, enabling development of a variety of industries. The contribution of nanotechnology is greatly expected for the further developments.

"Nanotechnology Platform Project", a nationwide facilities network, provides opportunities using advanced equipment and facilities for materials design, synthesis, processing, and analysis to researchers in academia and industries.

In the symposium, key lectures on next generation electronics such as nano-, power-, and car-electronics will be presented together with recent research results in FY2016 by Nanotechnology Platform.
