Design and thin-film synthesis of novel superconductors and magnetic materials with elucidation of the underlying physics

Assigned period

Apr. 1, 2020 -


Hideki YAMAMOTO received the Ph.D. in Chemistry in 1995, the M.S. degree in 1992, and the B.S degree in 1990 from the University of Tokyo, Japan. He joined NTT Basic Research Laboratories, Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation in 1995, where he has been engaged in the study of high-temperature superconductivity and superconductors, especially with thin-film specimens. His current interests are the design and thin-film synthesis of novel superconductors and magnetic materials along with the elucidation of the underlying physics. He was a Visiting Scholar at the Geballe Laboratory for Advanced Materials, Stanford University, USA from 2004-2005. He was an invited academic at Nagoya University (2010-2011) and Osaka University (2013-2014), and an adjunct lecturer at Niigata University (2014-2015). He served as a member of the editorial board of “Surface Science” (1998-2000) and the “Japanese Journal of Applied Physics/Applied Physics Express” (2015-2016) and as a proposal adjudicator of the European Research Council (2011). He was a member of the program committee of the Japanese Society of Applied Physics (JSAP) and SPIE Photonics West. He was the Group Leader of the Thin-Film Materials Research Group (2011-2015) and Low-Dimensional Nanomaterials Research Group (2015-2016). He was appointed Executive Manager of Materials Science Laboratory in 2015 and Senior Distinguished Researcher in 2020. He received the JSAP Young Scientist Presentation Award in 1997, ISPlasma2014/IC-PLANTS2014 Best Presentation Award in 2014, and Superconductivity Science and Technology Award from the Society of Non-Traditional Technology in 2016. He is a member of the JSAP, Physical Society of Japan (JPS), Japan Society of Vacuum and Surface Science (JVSS), American Physical Society (APS), and Materials Research Society (MRS).
