Fabrication instruments for bio-organic devices
Bio-organic devices consist of layered thin films with many kinds of materials such as semiconductors, metals, and insulators.
Each layer is deposited by printing paste with a printing machine or by vacuum evaporator, using optimal methods according to the purpose. Using these techniques we have established the fabrication process for the world-thinnest and lightest organic devices.

Instruments for organic device structure analysis
Fabrication of bio-organic devices requires controllability of thickness on the nano-scale. Structure evaluation instruments with state-of-art nanotechnology, such as SEM and SPM, are used to verify the intended structure after device fabrication.
