Fujitsu Wins the IT and Electronics Award at Nano Tech 2009
(Nanowerk News) Fujitsu Limited and Fujitsu Laboratories Limited today announced that they have been awarded the IT and Electronics Award at the nano tech 2009 International Exhibition and Conference, the largest international nanotechnology exhibition, held in Tokyo from February 18 to February 20.
At an awards ceremony held in Tokyo, Professor Tomoji Kawai, Chairman of the nano tech Executive Committee, stated that the IT and Electronics Award was awarded to the companies for their proposals of various applications of nano-carbon materials – such as carbon nanotube (CNT) transistors, CNT interconnects, and CNT-graphene composites – for semiconductor electronics, and their potential for paving the way toward the realization of "carbon electronics" comprised of carbon-based structural elements.
Award eligibility was open to all of the 603 corporations and organizations that exhibited at nano tech 2009 in Tokyo, as well as exhibitors at Nano Bio Expo 2009, which was held concurrently with nano tech 2009 at the Tokyo Big Sight international exhibition center.
Dr. Yuji Awano, a senior research fellow at the Nanotechnology Research Center of Fujitsu Laboratories Limited said, “Fujitsu Limited and Fujitsu Laboratories are honored to win this IT and Electronics Award at nano tech 2009. We would like to thank our collaborators - at private corporations, universities and independent administrative institutions - for their contributions to the Fujitsu exhibit. We at Fujitsu believe that our innovative technologies for nano-carbon materials and devices will help pave the way for the realization of carbon electronics."
