Autoren/Herausgeber: Paolo Mele, Tamio Endo, Shunichi Arisawa, Chaoyang Li, Tetsuo Tsuchiya (Hrsg.)
Paolo Mele is currently a Lecturer at Institute for Sustainable Sciences and Development, Hiroshima University (Higashi Hiroshima, Japan). He obtained a master degree on Chemistry and PhD in Chemical Sciences at Genova University (Italy). In 2003 he moved to ISTEC-SRL in Tokyo to study melt-textured ceramic superconductors. Then he worked as post-doc at Kyoto University (JSPS fellowship) from 2004 to 2007, and at Kyushu Institute of Technology (JST fellowship) from 2007 to 2011 before reaching his current position. His research interests include materials for energy and sustainable development (superconductors and thermoelectrics); fabrication and characterization of thin films of oxides, ceramics and metals; study of the effect of nanostructuration on the physical properties. He is author of more than 80 papers in scientific international journals, 2 book chapters, 2 patents and contributed to hundreds of communications at international conferences.Tamio Endo is currently a professor at the Graduate School of Engineering at Mie University in Japan. He completed his PhD at Kyoto University and his MsD at Gifu University. Dr. Endo’s research is focused on Oxide Thin Films, Multifunctional oxide Composites and Heterostructures, Plasma Effects on Polymer Films and Tight Bonding. Dr. Endo has published over 200 papers. He is involved in many international academic projects including Japan-India Cooperative Science Program. Dr. Endo has been an invited speaker to many international conferences and often gives guest lectures at foreign universities.Shunichi Arisawa is currently a principal researcher of National Institute of Materials Science in Tsukuba, Japan. He received his B.Eng. (1988), M. Eng. (1990) and doctor of engineering (1993) degrees in materials science from the University of Tokyo. His research fields are mainly processing, characterization and device applications of superconducting thin films. Characterization of superconducting films and single crystals using scanning SQUID microscopy is one of the recent interests.Chaoyang Li is currently a professor at Kochi University of Technology (Kochi, Japan). She received the B.S degree in physics, the M.S degree in microelectronics and solid state electronics from Heilongjiang University, China. She received the Ph.D degree in electrical and photonic system engineering at the Kochi University of Technology, Japan. Her research interests include semiconductor growth, physics, processing and devices, nanostructures and nanotechnologies, and photovoltaic devices. She has led and participate many research projects. She also contributed to the hundreds of scientific international journals and international conferences.Tetsuo Tsuchiya obtained his Ph.D. in chemical engineering from Tokyo University of Science in 1998. He was a member of the Research Fellowshipsｆor Young Scientists (DC1) at JSPS. He is currently the group leader of the Flexible Chemical Coating Group in Advanced Manufacturing Research Institute at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST). He developed the excimer laser assisted metal organic deposition (ELAMOD) process and the photo reaction of nano-particles (PRNP). He is currently focusing on the fabrication author and co-author of 115 papers and the holder of 32 patents.
