Mission for operating shared equipment

Creating a research and development hub for Nanotechnology and Material Science Technology is absolutely imperative and important for Japan to be a global leader in Science and Technology in the future. In the past 10 years, Japan’s Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology has been implementing the Low-carbon Research Network Japan, a common facility for shared use. And the Nanotechnology Platform was implemented in 2012. This project is intended to further enhance, strengthen and promote the network of cross-platform operating system for shared equipment. It provides a robust platform for state-of-the-art technology and technical support for academic, business and government users. The University of Tokyo has installed the most advanced analytical utility for nanotechnology and nano-analysis as the Platform Hub for Advanced Nano-Characterization in the field of micro structural analysis, while taking great effort in building the fundamental technology and improving the analytical techniques by establishing five divisions as well.
