International Conference on Nanoelectronics, Nanostructures and Carrier Interactions


 The international conference on nanoelectronics, nanostructures and carrier interactions (NNCI2007) was held from February 21 to 23, 2007, at the NTT Atsugi R&D Center in collaboration with Solution Oriented Research for Science and Technology (SORST) sponsored by the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST).
 Ultra-small "nano-scale" structures and the behavior of carriers in these structures have been the focus of a lot of attention for many years. Recently, the field has been advanced significantly through the introduction of additional degrees of freedom, such as electron and nuclear spin, magnetism, and mechanical motion. In addition, novel quantum mechanical concepts such as quantum computing and quantum cryptography are attracting a great deal of interest. With the aim of further advancing these studies, this conference aspired to gather leading scientists and provide forum for discussing the most recent topics in nanoelectronics, nanostructures, and carrier interactions. The conference was chaired by Dr. Toshimasa Fujisawa and Dr. Hiroshi Yamaguchi of NTT Basic Research Laboratories, together with Prof. Yoshiro Hirayama of Tohoku University.
 On February 21, after the opening and welcoming remarks by Dr. Junji Yumoto, Director of NTT Basic Research Laboratories, the technical session was opened with the plenary talk "Architecture for a Shor Factorization Engine Based on Semiconductor Spins" by Prof. E. Yablonovitch from University of California, Los Angeles. There were 17 oral presentations on coherent spin control, quantum information processing, 2-dimensional systems, metal-insulator transition, and electron transport in quantum dots, and 20 poster presentations. On the 22nd, the 15 oral presentations discussed nanowires and nanotubes, novel heterostructures, spintronics, and novel spin materials, and 20 posters were presented. On the 23rd, there were 15 oral presentations on scanning probe spectroscopy and imaging, electron correlation and interference, silicon nanoelectronics, and spin-related phenomena in nanostructures. We believe that we provided a very nice opportunity for mutual communication within and among the related research fields.
 The participants were totally 145 people. All participants well enjoyed the high-quality presentations and discussions on nanoelectronics, nanostructures, and carrier interactions.
