MIT.nano has introduced that Fujikura, an organization that develops and manufactures applied sciences for telecommunications, electronics, vitality, and automotive merchandise, has joined the MIT.nano Consortium.
The Tokyo-based firm has manufactured wires and cables — “Tsunagu,” or connecting, applied sciences — since its founding in 1885. With this experience developed over 130 years as a basis, Fujikura’s present analysis and growth efforts deal with purposes for optical fibers, broadband wi-fi transmission, superconducting wires, electrical autos, and different superior applied sciences.
“For greater than a century, Fujikura has been within the enterprise of constructing connections. This spirit is an ideal match for MIT’s tradition of innovation by collaboration,” says Vladimir Bulović, the founding college director of MIT.nano and the Fariborz Maseeh (1990) Professor of Rising Expertise. “We sit up for connecting our new colleagues from Fujikura to the MIT neighborhood and the members of the MIT.nano Consortium.”
MIT.nano’s principal relationship with Fujikura might be with the corporate’s Superior Analysis Core (ARC), a brand new unit established at Fujikura in 2019 to conduct superior primary analysis.
“Proper now, we reside in a really thrilling time surrounded by digital transformation. To allow our researchers to ascertain the subsequent period, the Superior Analysis Core works to develop cutting-edge applied sciences, overlaying each primary and utilized areas. On behalf of ARC, I sit up for exploring with MIT.nano the limitless potential of nanotechnology to counterpoint the world,” says Yumi Yamada, Fujikura’s basic supervisor of ARC.
In MIT.nano’s quarterly business consortium conferences, Fujikura will present recommendation alongside 12 different consortium firms to assist information and advance nanoscale improvements at MIT:
- Agilent Applied sciences
- Analog Gadgets
- Lam Analysis
- Waters Company
MIT.nano continues to welcome new firms as sustaining members. “By studying from and collaborating with business companions like Fujikura, we strengthen MIT’s potential to deal with pressing challenges and develop artistic options, beginning on the nanoscale and increasing to world impression,” says Bulović.
