EDS Newsletter: October 2007
A DL talk entitled "Alternative processes for synthesis of high k dielectrics and CNT's" was given by Prof. Jacobus W. Swart of State University of Campinas, Brazil, at the Suzukakedai Campus of Tokyo Institute of Technology, Yokohama, Japan, on May 31, 2007. The lecture was followed by fruitful discussion on the CNT's for future applications. This DL meeting attended by 15 people was very meaningful.
On June 25, 2007, EDS Japan Chapter also organized a DL meeting entitled “Organic Electronics and RF devices” at the Hongo Campus of University of Tokyo, Tokyo. Japan. Three Japanese DLs made presentations on their topics and offered the attendees the opportunity to get to grips with up-to-date, interesting and useful research. Prof. Takao Someya, who is from Univ. of Tokyo, Tokyo, talked about the current status and future applications of Organic Electronics. The title of his lecture was “Ambient Electronics application of Sheet devices.” Prof. Mitsumasa Iwamoto, who is from Tokyo Institute of Technology, Yokohama, lectured on “Probing and Control of Surface Polarization Phenomena in Molecular Films for Organic Electronics.” Prof. Kenya Hashimoto, who is from Chiba Univ., Chiba, talked about the research trends of the RF filters, focusing on their possible integration into RF ICs. The title was "RF SAW/BAW Devices: Current Status and Future Prospects.” These lectures were followed by lively discussions between the lecturers and the audience. The meeting, with more than 50 participants, was a great success.
In addition, in the first half of the year from January 2007 to June 2007, ED Japan Chapter had 4 joint technical meetings with the Japan Society of Applied Physics, the Association of Super-Advanced Electronics Technologies, etc.
