First paragraph (this article has no abstract)

The Global Center of Excellence (GCOE) for atomically controlled fabrication technology was established in 2008 by the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT), as a succession program of the 21st Century COE program for atomistic fabrication technology promoted from 2003 to 2007. The GCOE program is implemented by three departments, namely the Departments of Precision Science & Technology, Applied Physics, and Advanced Science and Biotechnology, and by the Research Center for Ultra-precision Science and Technology, all of which belong to the Graduate School of Engineering of Osaka University.
