Akira FUJIWARA received his B.E., M.E., and Ph.D. degrees in applied physics from The University of Tokyo, Japan in 1989, 1991, and 1994, respectively. He joined NTT LSI Laboratories, Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation in 1994 and moved to NTT Basic Research Laboratories in 1996. Since 1994, he has been engaged in research on silicon nanostructures and their application to single-electron devices. He was a guest researcher at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Gaithersburg, MD, USA during 2003-2004. He was a director of the Japanese Society of Applied Physics in 2010 and 2011 and a visiting professor of Hokkaido University in 2013. He was appointed as Distinguished Scientist of NTT in 2007 and Senior Distinguished Scientist of NTT in 2015. He is currently a senior manager of Physical Science Laboratory. He received the SSDM Young Researcher Award in 1998, SSDM Paper Award in 1999, and Japanese Journal of Applied Physics (JJAP) Paper Awards in 2003, 2006, and 2013. He was awarded the Young Scientist Award in 2006 and Prizes for Science and Technology in 2017 from the Minister of MEXT (Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science, and Technology). He was supported by the funding program for Next Generation World-Leading Researchers (NEXT Program), JSPS in 2011-2014. He is now a PI of the 2018-2022 JSPS KAKENHI S (Quantum Standards and Ultimate Precision Measurements Based on Single Electrons). He is a member of the Japan Society of Applied Physics, a member of Science Council of Japan, and a Fellow of the IEEE.
