Hiroshi Yamaguchi was born in Osaka on October 30, 1961. He received the B.E., M.S. in physics and Ph.D. degrees in engineering from the Osaka University in 1984, 1986 and 1993, respectively. He joined NTT Basic Research Laboratories in 1986 and has engaged in the study of compound semiconductor surfaces using electron diffraction and scanning tunneling microscopy. His current interests are micro/nanomechanical devices using semiconductor heterostructures. He was a visiting research fellow in Imperial College, University of London, U.K. during 1995-1996 and a visiting research staff in Paul Drude Institute, Germany in 2003. He is a guest professor in Tohoku University from 2006 and a director of the Japanese Society of Applied Physics in 2008 and 2009. He served as more than 40 committee members of academic societies and international conferences. He received Inoue Prize for Science (2012), Institute of Physics Fellowship (2011), SSDM2009 Paper Award (2010), MNC2008 Outstanding Paper Award (2009), and the Paper Awards of Japan Society of Applied Physics (1989, 2004, 2010). He is currently an executive manager of Physical Science Laboratory and a group leader of Nanostructure Technology Research Group. He is a member of the Japan Society of Applied Physics, the Physical Society of Japan, Institute of Physics (UK), and IEEE.
