Activities of Subcommittees and Research Groups

Society consists of researchers in a variety of fields ranging from biology to materials science. Interactions among researchers in different fields also provide opportunities that will lead to new discoveries and innovative inventions. We also encourage our subcommittees and research groups to actively carry out activities to provide occasions that allow for a deeper and/or a wider range of discussions. Our subcommittees work on lasting, universal, and fundamental subjects in as many as ten academic fields, including ultra-high-resolution microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, and analytical electron microscopy. The research groups are working on topical or ad hoc subjects, and the research results obtained through these activities are reported at academic lecture meetings, symposiums, and other occasions, such as meetings for presenting research results, and are widely shared with the members, helping raise the research level.
