Our laboratory focuses much of its research efforts on building up technologies that allow the reliability prediction of electronic devices and equipment in actual use through large scale computer simulations (Finite Element Analysis method) based the mechanical properties of materials that we measured and analyzed. And the laboratory's focus is also placed on deriving new material "states" having structures suitable and required for next-generation products, by means of combining the simulation technology with the statistical technique, leading to the developments of new materials. For computer simulations, the laboratory team has built a desk-side supercomputer equipped with state-of-the-art many core processors and is looking to perform a large scale computation in a short amount of time.
