The Chiba Experiment Station is part of the Institute of Industrial Science of the University of Tokyo. The station covers an area of 9.2 ha and was established in 1962 when the institute moved its campus from the city of Chiba to Roppongi, the location of the former campus till March, 2001. Its purpose is to accommodate large scale research facilities and experimental works that cannot be carried out on the Komaba II campus in downtown Tokyo. Research projects are renewed according to the progress made in respective fields and to meet social needs. In recent years, about 30 laboratories have been engaged in roughly 40 projects at the station. Some of the projects carried out at the station are summarized here.

The purpose of the Center is to carry out research activities for developing micro-machines and nano-systems that are greatly needed in science, industry and society, using micro/nano-machining technology that utilizes both semi-conductor processing and precision machining. Instead of simply downsizing existing machines, it integrates mechanical devices, electronics, optics, RF communication, and biological technology in micro-sizes, aiming to realize new functions and features. Based on micro/nano-machining studies that have been conducted in the IIS and collaborative research activities over 20 years with the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS), the Center promotes international cooperation and expands frontiers in research activities. International Research Group on Nano and Micro System (NAMIS) was established on November, 2005. Partners in the network are CNRS, Swiss EPFL, German Freiburg University, Finnish VTT, Korean SNU and KIMM, Canadian EP Montreal, Taiwanese Tsing Hua University, US Washington University, and Tohoku University. We have organized workshops, visiting partner organizations and learning research activities. As a result, several international research projects were launched with financial support from EU, French/ANR and Japanese governments. Also MEMS school for graduate students is annually held.

In 2002, The University of Tokyo established the Nanoelectronics Collaborative Research Center (NCRC). Based on semiconductor nanotechnology, we are developing advanced nano-photonic and nano-electronic devices for future information and communication systems.
We are also aiming to realize such devices not only in laboratories but also in the real world. The NCRC is promoting large national projects supported by MEXT and METI in close collaborations with various industrial leaders and overseas universities. In this network, significant results have already been achieved, including high-performance quantum dot lasers and single photon sources at the telecommunication wavelength. This collaborative research network between universities and industries also serves the purpose of training young persons of exceptional ability who will take a strong leadership role in the future of the nanoelectronics field.
The NCRC is also the main organization for the Japan-Italy international collaboration in nanotechnology. Furthermore, we are strongly collaborating with the Collaborative Institute of Quantum Information Electronics (CINQIE), University of Tokyo, for developing core technologies for quantum information. Through these activities, we are aiming to establish a Center of Excellence (COE) for advanced nano-photonics and nano-electronics in the Komaba Research Campus.
The NCRC is jointly operated by the Institute of Industrial Science (IIS) and the Research Center for Advanced Science and Technology (RCAST), University of Tokyo.
