Aims and Goals

Charged particle beams consisting of electrons and ions have constantly been in the forefront of advanced technologies for ultrafine processing, materials modification, functional thin films formation, and analytical probes due to their superior controllability. Various industry fields, such as the semiconductor, metal, and polymer fields, have always shown interest in and intense hope for these beams.

With that in mind, researchers in this committee, coming from fields of engineering and physics related to electricity, machinery, chemistry, and materials, have cooperated in carrying out research into basic charged particle beam and device technologies as well as in promoting research into industrial applications, with the goal of contributing to significant advances in related fields.
