The Laboratory for Nanoelectronics and Spintronics of the Research Institute of Electrical Communication was established on April of 2004. Its purpose is to develop and establish the science and technology of nanoelectronics and spintronics for information technology. Utilizing the facilities installed in the Nanoelectronics-and-Spintronics building and under collaboration between the RIEC and electro-related laboratories of the Graduate Schools of Engineering, Information Sciences, Biomedical Engineering, Tohoku University, R&D of nanotechnologies of materials and devices in Nanoelectronics and Spintronics will be continued extensively. Furthermore, nation-wide and world-wide collaboration research projects will be conducted to build a systematic database in the electrical communication research area.
The Laboratory for Nanoelectronics and Spintronics mainly consists of research groups which promote following sections: Nano-Integration Devices and Processing, Spintronics, and Nano-Molecular Devices; together with the project office of the Center for Innovative Integrated Electronic Systems, and the groups of Ultra-Broadband Signal Processing and Soft Computing Integrated System. These groups cooperatively carry out the research aimed at establishing a world-wide COE in the research area of nanoelectronics and spintronics.
