“The purpose of this workshop is essentially to promote interactions among researchers from materials science, solid state device physics and mathematics in NCTU and AIMR, Tohoku university. It was great successful for us. Additionally, our future collaboration will greatly contribute to future trend of nano-device developments, because Taiwan leads the world in semiconductor field. I hope our relation will become stronger.” noted Prof. Samukawa.
