The national R&D project on gNanotechnology Glassh
sponsored by METI
The Nanotechnology Glass R&D Project was launched by Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) in 2000, as a five year plan from Fy 2001, and commissioned to New Glass Forum. NGF is engaged in joint research under cooperation NGFfs member companies, government research institutes and academia. The object of the Nanotechnology Glass Project is to create objects of the nanometer size different from the matrix, that is the atomic or molecular level to the virus size level, in the amorphous material glass and thereby create glass having completely new function never before obtained from glass alone.
