ICMENS 2022 Keynote Speakers
Prof. Akira Toriumi, IEEE Fellow, The University of Tokyo, Japan
Biography: Akira Toriumi received the B.S. degree in physics, the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in applied physics from The University of Tokyo in Japan in 1978, 1980 and 1983, respectively. Then, he joined R&D Center of Toshiba Corporation in Japan, in which he had been engaged in device physics and technology in CMOS miniaturization. He was with Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA (1988–1990) as a visiting scientist on leave from Toshiba. In May 2000, he moved to Department of Materials Engineering of The University of Tokyo. He had also served as a high-k gate stack group leader in MIRAI Project (a national project for advanced CMOS in Japan) from 2001 to 2007. He retired in March 2019, and he is now an emeritus professor in The University of Tokyo.
Through his professional carrier, his research interests have been on device physics and materials science with regard to semiconductor devices. Particularly, he has investigated gate dielectrics, functional oxides, electron transport and processing science in Si and Ge CMOS, and low-dimensional materials and devices. He has authored and co-authored more than 600 scientific journal papers and conference proceedings, and several book chapters. He received several awards such as IEEE International Reliability Physics Symposium (IRPS), Best Paper Award (1997), Solid-State Device and Materials (SSDM), Best Paper Award (2000 & 2003), IEEE EDS Paul Rappaport Award (2004), SSDM Award (2014), IEEE Cledo Brunetti Award (2016) and JSAP (The Japan Society of Applied Physics) Outstanding Achievement Award (2017). He served as several international conference chairs and committees such as Executive Committee in VLSI Symposium (2008-2017), Program Chair (2005) and Organizing Chair (2018) in International SSDM, General Chair in Si-Nanoelectronics Workshop (IEEE/JSAP) (1999), Executive Committee (2004-2006) and Vice President (2012-2013) in JSAP, Vice Chair (2010-2011) and Chapter Chair (2012-2013) in IEEE EDS (Electron Device Society) Japan.
Prof. Frank Otremba, Federal Institute for Material Research and Testing, Germany
Biography: Prof. Dr. Frank Otremba is the Head of the BAM (Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing) division “Tanks for Dangerous Goods and Accidental Mechanics” in Berlin and honorary professor at the Technical University of Brandenburg. He graduated as mechanical engineer (Dipl.-Ing.) and received his Ph.D. from the University of Rostock in the field of numerical methods and fracture mechanics in 1991. He has more than 20 years of experience in the nuclear field and has published numerous papers. He is a member of the German Reactor Safety Commission subgroup “Materials and Pressurized Components” and Nuclear Safety Standards Commission subgroup “Mechanical Components”.
Prof. Yasuhiko Hayashi, Okayama University, Japan
HAYASHI received the B.E., M.E. and D.E., degrees in
electrical and computer engineering from the Nagoya
Institute of Technology, Nagoya, Japan, in 1990, 1992, and
1999, respectively. From 1992 to 1996, he was engaged in
research on semiconductor device modeling in Motorola Japan
Ltd., Tokyo, Japan. He was appointed a Research Associate
and an Associated Professor in the Department of
Environmental Technology and Urban Planning at Nagoya
Institute of Technology in 1999 and 2007, respectively, and
then he was an Associated Professor in Department of
Frontier Materials at Nagoya Institute of Technology in
2008. He has been a full Professor in Graduate School of
Natural Science and Technology at Okayama University since
October 2012. Since December 2016, Visiting Professor at
Institute of Innovative Research, Tokyo Institute of
Technology. From June to November in 2005, he was with the University of
Cambridge, as a Visiting Scientists, during which time he
explored the metal filled carbon nanotubes.
His research interests are fundamental physics, low-cost production and applications of various types of carbon nano materials, such as carbon nanotubes, graphene and carbon nanohorns. And also interests are CNT yarn and senseors, Perovskite solar cells & Thermoelectric devices, Organic solar cells & FETs, New nanoscale devices and systems, Spintronics.
