NEC sets up carbon nanotube research center

April 9, 2002 – Tokyo, Japan – NEC Corp. has established a research center mainly to apply carbon nanotubes to fuel cells with the goal of commercializing small, long-life fuel cells for cell phones and notebook PCs as early as FY05.

The new research center, launched at the NEC research institute in Tsukuba, Ibaraki Prefecture, will develop (within one year) technologies needed for commercialization, such as a method to change fuel, reported the Nihon Keizai Shimbun.

NEC will then work to lower production costs and establish a method for mass production beginning in FY03.
