Technologies for fabricating, observing, and measuring nanoscale systems have been making a rapid progress in recent years.
Understanding of material properties from their nanoscale physics/chemistry is essential for future scientific and technological breakthroughs.
In nanoscale regions, physics, chemistry, materials science, and electronics are no longer independent disciplines; instead, interaction of these fields is becoming indispensable for creating new research directions.

The objective of this project is to pursue such interdisciplinary research through collaboration of the member research groups and create a new paradigm in science and engineering.
