As one of our activities, we have been organizing the "Science in Japan" Forums in Washington DC once every year from 1996. The Purpose of the forum is to introduce leadingedge research trends being advanced recently in Japan. It also serves to promote mutual communication among scientists in Japan, the United States and other countries.
The 19th "SCIENCE IN JAPAN" FORUM

Frontiers of Research on Low-Dimensional Systems

- DATE -
October 3, 2014

- VENUE -
Cosmos Club, 2121 Massachusetts Ave. NW, Washington, DC 20008

Ever since the birth of quantum dots, wires, and nanocrystals a few decades ago, the field of low-dimensional systems has continuously grown to become one of the most active areas of modern applied science research. Quantum-confined electrons offer not only a highly controlled and intriguing environment in which to answer fundamental scientific questions but also a plethora of ideas and opportunities for novel device applications. This symposium will bring together some of the leading researchers in this field . both from Japan and the U.S. to showcase the latest electronic, photonic, and spintronic discoveries and breakthroughs in low-dimensional systems, including carbon nanotubes, quantum dots, graphene, and atomically thin materials.
