The Laboratory for Nanoelectronics and Spintronics of the Research Institute of Electrical Communication (RIEC) was established in April of 2004. Its purpose is to develop and establish the science and technology of nanoelectronics and spintronics for information technology. Utilizing the facilities installed in the Nanoelectronics-and-Spintronics building and under collaboration between RIEC and related laboratories of the Graduate Schools of Engineering, Information Sciences, Biomedical Engineering, of Tohoku University, R&D on nanotechnologies of materials and devices in Nanoelectronics and Spintronics are continued extensively. Furthermore, nation-wide and world-wide collaboration research projects are conducted to build a systematic database in electrical communication research. The Laboratory for Nanoelectronics and Spintronics mainly consists of laboratories of Nano-Integration Devices and Processing, Spintronics, and Nano-Bio Hybrid Molecular Devices; together with the project office of the Center for Innovative Integrated Electronic Systems, and the groups of Ultra-Broadband Signal Processing, Soft Computing Integrated System and Quantum Devices. These groups cooperatively carry out the research aimed at establishing a world-wide Center of Excellence (COE) in the research area of nanoelectronics and spintronics
