Toshiba to Showcase the Leading-Edge Technologies to nano tech 2013

Toshiba Corporation (TOKYO:6502) today announced the line-up of innovative technologies that it will bring to "nano tech 2013 – The 12th International Nanotechnology Exhibition & Conference", the world's biggest exhibition of nanotechnology, that will be held at the Tokyo Big Sight from January 30 to February 1. http://www.nanotechexpo.jp/en/index.html

Toshiba has worldwide operations in the smart community business segment that is considered as a future growth area. In the coming exhibition, Toshiba will exhibit its next-generation nanotechnology that will help drive "Total storage innovation" and "Total energy innovation". These innovations will serve as catalysts for realizing a smart community concept proposed by Toshiba Group.

Toshiba Group will demonstrate its wide-ranging nanotechnologies in 14 technology fields in three exhibition areas, each of which will focus on "Total storage innovations", "Advanced and Sophisticated Material" and "Total energy innovations".
