ATIP01.053 : GRAPE and MDM Computers
ABSTRACT: This report discusses two very high performance computing systems, GRAPE and MDM, both being developed at research labs near Tokyo.
Date: 20 Nov 2001
ATIP01.054 : Nanobiology Activities in Europe
ABSTRACT: This report summarizes European activities in nanobiotechnology. The geographical areas addressed include the United Kingdom, Germany, France, the Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden, Finland, Denmark and Switzerland. The research and development policy regarding nanobiotechnology are presented for the European Union as a whole and for each country individually. Descriptions of European Centers of Excellence and enabling technologies are presented in the second part of the report. The third part of the report addresses companies, which are pursuing industrial developments in nanobiotechnology. Contacts and web links of interest are listed at the end of the report.

ATIP01.055 : Microfluidics in Europe
ABSTRACT: This report summarizes European activities in Microfluidics -- technologies for applications requiring an accurate measurement and metering of very small quantities of fluids. There are a broad range of important applications, such as industrial marking, biotechnology, drug discovery & medical diagnostics, pharmacogenomics, polymer synthesis, combinatorial drug synthesis, chemical processing and analysis. In this report, the geographical area addressed include the United Kingdom, Germany, France, the Netherlands, Sweden, Finland, Denmark and Switzerland. A background of technologies and systems is presented, and descriptions of European industrial, academic, government organizations, developing and marketing of products and services are presented. Over three-dozen pictures, figures, and tables display the technologies in detail. Conclusions outline findings of the report including dominant technological and market activities in Europe.

ATIP01.056 : Spintronics R&D in Japan
ABSTRACT: This technical report summarizes a one-day Japanese language workshop, "Current Status and Future Prospects of Spin Electronics" that was held October 23, 2001 in Tokyo. Spin Electronics refers to electronic devices whose properties are determined by electron spin, rather than only by charge. Importantly, this workshop was held (for the first time) under the joint auspices of three major Japanese scientific societies, the Magnetics Society of Japan, the Japan Society of Applied Physics and the Japan Society of Physics.
