NIMS signed MOU with State Key Laboratory of Silicon Materials, Zhejiang University

Nano Characterization Unit of Advanced Key Technologies Division in NIMS and the State Key Laboratory of Silicon Materials, Zhejiang University, have agreed to a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on the research and development in the field of novel low-dimensional nanomaterials.

The State Key Laboratory of Silicon Materials has a staff of 28, including one academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, eleven full professors, four associated professors, and two senior engineers. The Laboratory is engaged in the basic and applied research on silicon materials and other semiconductor materials in the following areas: 1. the growth of silicon crystals with large diameters, defects and impurities in the silicon materials, 2. preparations, characterizations, and applications of silicon-based thin films, 3. composite semiconductor optoelectronic materials, and 4. composite functional materials. The Laboratory aims to become an advanced laboratory in the field of silicon materials and other advanced composite semiconductor materials.

We are expecting a further development of novel low-dimensional nanomaterials research based on the MOU.
