Cellulose nanofibers with 4-20 nm width are bundles of cellulose microfibrils, which are frameworks of cell walls in all the plants. We have developed nano-fibrillation processes of bio-resources (wood, plants fibers, crabs, shrimps e.t.c.) and some advanced nanofiber materials with high optical transparency. Moreover, we have also improved their properties or processes to realize their applications in the electronic devices.
