Nitto Denko Corporation(headquarter: Osaka, Japan, President: Hideo Takasaki, hereafter Nitto)is awarded “Commendations for Science and Technology (Development Category)” by the Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology for inventing a new method of manufacturing ultra-thin polarizing film.

The Commendation by the Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology is the acknowledgement of remarkable achievements in research and development, and the contribution to advancing the understanding of science and technology. Additionally, Commendations aim to increase the motivation of those involved in the science and technology fields and contribute to the improvement of the level of science and technology in Japan. The "Awards for Science and Technology (Development Category)" are given to those who have conducted epoch-making research and achieved development with a practical application, or to inventions that have contributed to the improvement of Japan's socioeconomics and the quality of people's lives.

Nitto’s manufacturing method for ultra-thin polarizing film produces the thinnest level polarizing film until now.
