Gallium oxide is a new type of semiconductor material originating in Japan and the founders of its research group have only recently discovered the usefulness of this material in power devices. Novel Crystal Technology was established in 2015 with the primary objective of developing and promoting gallium oxide.

The Tamura Corporation, the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT) in Japan and the Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology are the core figures of the research and development team behind gallium oxide and lead the world in this field. Our technologies are based on the results of their research.

Novel Crystal Technology is a ‘carve-out’ venture from the Tamura Corporation and a technology transfer venture from NICT.

Creating new resources will create a new futuristic way of living. In order to help realize this concept, we provide exceptional materials which will expedite the development of gallium oxide power devices carried out by our customers; public institutions and research and development teams of corporations. We will continue to make progress in our technologies.
