Prof. Okuyama described recent nanoparticle projects in Japan. He first emphasized that material synthesis via aerosol and colloid processing could offer a route to producing nanometer-sized and submicrometer-sized particles of high purity with specifically tailored chemical and physical proper-ities. Then, he mentioned nanotechnology related projects of the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO) supported by the Ministry of Economy, International Trade and Industry (METI) of Japan.
The Symposium, ‘Nanoparticles: Aerosols and Materials,’ was the first symposium on nanoparticles jointly sponsored by the European Science Foundation (ESF), the US National Science Foundation (NSF), and the Korean Science and Engineering Foundation (KOSEF). It was held in conjunction with the 2nd Asian Aerosol Conference (AAC, July 1–4, 2001), Pusan, Korea, with the following objectives: • Bring together Asian, European and US scientists in the field of Aerosol Science and Materials Science, and to enhance cooperation, especially among young scientists, in both disciplines. • Present most recent findings in the fields of nanos-tructured materials with new or improved proper-ties, especially functional ceramics and electronics, as well as optical and opto-electronic devices. • Evaluate the research trends and opportunities, and to enhance the link between synthesis and char-acterization of nanoparticles in the gas phase and nanostructured materials.
