Abstract:

Professor James L. Merz spent the Fall of 1985 as a Visiting Research Scientist in the Optoelectronics Joint Research Laboratory OJL in Kawasaki, Japan. OJL is a joint cooperative laboratory staffed by researchers from mine private electronics companies in Japan through the sponsorship of the Ministry of International Trade and Industry MITI of the Japanese government. Professor Merz was the first foreign visiting researcher in this laboratory, and was able to observe first-hand how governindustry cooperative research proceeds in such an environment. In addition, Professor Merz visited the research laboratories of many of the member companies. This report represents an assessment of the effectiveness of a joint cooperative research laboratory such as OJL for optoelectronics research and development in Japan. Professor Merz is the Director of the Compound Semiconductor Institute at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and a Professor of Electrical Engineering. Author
