EDS Newsletter 2007年7月号
On January 23rd, the annual meeting of the EDS
Japan Chapter was held in Tokyo.
Dr. Atsushi Kurobe, Japan
Chapter Chair reported the 2005 activities and the 2006 plan of the Chapter. At
the meeting, the 2005 EDS Japan Chapter Student Award was presented to two
students for their outstanding activities in the research of electron devices
last year. Tetsu Ohtou (Univ. of Tokyo) and Masaharu Kobayashi (Univ. of Tokyo)
received the awards for their excellent IEDM papers, “Experimental
demonstrations of superior characteristics of variable body-factor (g) fully-depleted SOI MOSFETs with extremely thin
BOX of 10 nm” and “Experimental study on quantum structure of silicon nanowire
and its impact on nanowire MOSFET and single-electron transistor, ”
Following the annual meeting on the same day,
the Briefing Session on the 2006 IEDM was held. Six speakers gave summary talks
on the highlights of the IEDM. They were "Modeling and simulation” by Dr.
M. Hane (NEC Corp.), “Nanodevices” by Dr. K. Uchida (Toshiba Corp.), “III-V and
quantum devices” by Prof. K. Yo (Hokkaido Univ.), “CMOS process” by Dr. M. Kase
(Fujitsu Ltd.), “CMOS device” by Dr. H. Wakabayashi (Sony Corp.) and
“Integrated Circuits” by Dr. Y. Matsui (Hitachi Ltd.). This session has gained
widespread popularity among engineers in Japan who are unable to attend the
IEDM, since it is an opportunity for them to familiarize themselves with the
latest information on electron device technology. This year’s Briefing Session
was very successful with more than 70 participants.
The committee meeting of the EDS Japan chapter was also held this
January. The guests, namely, Dr. Tetsuhiko Ikegami, Vice Chair of Japan
Council; Prof. Kunihiro Asada, Chapter Operations Committee Chair; Dr. Tsutomu
Sugawara, Secretary of Tokyo Chapter; Prof. Hiroshi Iwai, EDS Jr. Past
President; Prof. Kenji Taniguchi, EDS Kansai Chapter ex-Chair; and Prof. Kazuo
Tsutsui, EDS Newsletter Regional Editor, were a source of much valuable advice
for the Chapter. The 2005 activities and the 2006 plan of the Chapter were
approved at the meeting.
