NU System is founded based on the research achievements obtained by Prof. Masaru Hori and Prof. Norihiko Nishizawa (Nagoya University) and Prof. Masafumi Ito (Meijo University). Prof. Hori and Prof. Nishizawa work for Graduate School / School of Engineering, Nagoya University, which is carrying out the research for Aichi/Nagoya Knowledge Cluster, Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, and Prof. Ito works for Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering , Meijo University, which is researching collaboratively with Nagoya University.
Aichi/Nagoya Knowledge Cluster, Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology has been carried through as a tentatively scheduled five-year program and Prof. Hori is one of the research project leaders for the program. Prof. Nishizawa is also a part of the research project lead by Prof. Hori. New industrial cluster partnership program was added to this program from 2005 and the research related to "A large-bandwidth & ultrahigh-sensitivity instant light measuring technology and development of a small-sized light sensing apparatus". NU System is founded for the sake of production and commericialization based on accomplishments being done within those reserch themes. Aichi/Nagoya Knowledge Cluster is aiming for not only obtaining great findings, but also applying for patent, productization, and commercialization of findings, and creation of venture companies so that NU System is founded as part of this program.
To be more precise, we commercialize and sell the laser and plasma light source and analyzing system baded on findings regarding instant light technology of measuring and analyzing multielement which are in a gas or liquid or solid state.
Foundation of our company is scheduled as a plan of Aichi/Nagoya Knowledge Cluster associating project, and carrys through as it was planned. Therefore, NU System is founded as an university venture from Nagoya University and Meijo University.
