Enhancing industrial competitiveness through innovative technologies that lead varying manufacturing

We are contributing to enhancing industrial competitiveness by developing advanced electronic and optical device technologies that enable both performance enhancement and significant energy savings of IT equipment, and innovative manufacturing technologies that enable energy savings, resource savings, and low cost. Moreover, we are building a highly efficient production system by combining innovative manufacturing technologies and sensing technologies based on the advanced devices.

Development of Optical Components with Both World Top-Level Wide-Angle Low Reflectivity and Anti-fogging Properties

AIST has developed a technology that fabricates anti-reflective nanostructures with world top-level low-reflection characteristics over a wide incident angle range by injection molding. In addition, a newly developed self-forming column formation technology is used to form column-shaped structures to achieve anti-fogging effects.

Development of New Transistor Architecture for the 2nm Node

AIST and the Taiwan Semiconductor Research Institute fabricated a Si nFET /Ge pFET vertically stacked heterogeneous complementary field effect transistor for the 2nm node. This ultimate new device architecture can lead to the realization of higher performance and lower power consumption CMOS devices.

Research Laboratory

Open Innovation Laboratory

Since FY 2016, as a part of the “Open Innovation Arena concept” promoted by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI), AIST has created the concept of “open innovation laboratories” (OILs), collaborative research bases located on university campuses, and has been engaged in their provision. We are planning to establish more than ten OILs by FY 2020.

AIST will merge the basic research carried out at universities, etc. with AISTʼs goal-oriented basic research and applied technology development, and will promote bridging research and evelopment and industry by the establishment of OILs.

Cooperative Research Laboratories

In order to conduct research and development more closely related to strategies of companies, we have established collaborative research laboratories, bearing partner company names.

Partner companies provide their researchers and funding, and AIST provides research resources, such as its researchers, research facilities, and intellectual property. The loaned researchers of companies and AIST researchers jointly conduct research and development.

By setting up cooperative research laboratories, we will accelerate the commercialization of our goal-oriented basic research and application research with partner companies.
