Art, Science and Technology Center for Cooperative Research

The center is comprised of a Liaison Division, a Design Division and a Project Division, and 3 research areas (laboratory) in the Project Division join in the Department of Applied Science for Electronics and Materials. The advanced research project linked with the society is promoted having coordination with private companies.

Advanced Functional Devices Laboratory

[Keywords] MOSFET, LSI, film formation and fabrication process, low-temperature formation of insulating films and crystal thin films, Si, SiGe, Ge, SOI, SGOI, GOI, junction transient capacitance/current method S, photoluminescence method

[Research outline] In this area, research on the semiconductive device supporting the highly-sophisticated information society is proceeded.  Specifically, ions generated by plasma are effectively used for tackling 1) low-temperature formation of a high-quality insulating film, and 2) low-temperature formation of single crystal/multicrystal thin film, aiming for good-quality functional thin film formation and device application thereof.  Additionally, high-quality wafer is essential for a high-precision Si device, and 3) research on the evaluation of a slight amount of defects and control thereof is also proceeded

Advanced Functional Materials Laboratory

[Keywords] Functional glass, Mesoporous silica,Organic/inorganic nanocomposite, Transparent Conductive Oxide,Fluorescence,Nano-imprint, Structure of glass, Physical properties of melts, Fabrication process, Fine machining process

[Research outline] This project aims to research advanced functional and environmentally conscious glass-ceramic materials. They have attracted interest because of its excellent properties such as thermal resistance, chemical durability and mechanical strength, and high optical transmittance. We are engaged in research and development of transparent optoelectronics materials with nano structures. We especially focus on new eco-friendly method of preparing functional glass from mesoporous material consisted from nano particle and organic polymer. The excellent characters of the novel transparent materials would be conducive to its use for next generation optoelectronics and bio industry fields (e.g., optical sensor, light guide, optical lens, microchip display)

Photonic System Laboratory

[Keywords] organic EL, organic TFT, analog circuit design, LSI design, electronic paper, organic EL display, flexible display, touch panel, drive technology

[Research outline] In this area, research/development of a flat panel display (FPD) that is main pillar of Japanese industry is specifically tackled. Presently, “electronic paper” and “organic EL display” of FPD are particularly tackled, and additionally, research on an organic electronics as an important technology for producing a flexible display with a large area is also conducted. The organic electronics is basic element technology bringing a drastic change in the producing cost/functions as a next-generation display. A wide range of knowledge about materials to the system is required for producing a new display, however, we hope that young, flexible wisdom are gathered in the university to bring out a new display in the world in a new approach.
