  • Summary of a research visit to VTT, Finland between 2-13 September 2013 and NIMS, Japan between 17-28 Feb 2014 (Dr. Edward Brightman, NPL)
  • Summary of a research visit to a German Institute between 1-12 July 2013 (Hideaki Yamada, AIST):
    I stayed at an institute in Europe from July 1st to 12th, 2013. This was my longest stay in abroad. Researchers there kindly accepted my proposal, and helped my travel; actually, they reserved my hotel. While the length of stay, two weeks, was not long enough to finish all, we could introduce and discuss current status of our researches with each other. They introduced their experimental setups, and we could conducted some measurements there. This opportunity must be quite important for me and have big influence on my future research activity
