Yoshiharu KROCKENBERGER received his diploma in physics from The University of Technology of Munich, Germany, studying tunneling spectroscopy on superconductors. Working at the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research in Stuttgart, Germany, on transition metal oxides with strong electron correlations he received his Ph.D. degree from The University of Technology of Darmstadt, Germany in 2006. At the end of 2006 he joined the Correlated Electron Research Center at The Institute for Advanced Industrial Science and Technology in Tsukuba, Japan as a research scientist. In 2008, he moved to RIKEN in Wako, Japan where he was engaged as a research scientist at the Cross-Correlated Materials Research group. He joined NTT Basic Research Laboratories, Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation in 2010. His interests are development of novel superconducting materials and competing order parameters in strongly-correlated electronic systems. He was appointed as Distinguished Scientist of NTT in 2013. He is currently a member of Low-Dimensional Nanomaterials Research Group. He received the Young Scientist Award for an Excellent Article from Superconductivity Division of Japan Society of Applied Physics in 2012. In 2016, the Society for Non-Traditional Technology awarded his contributions to research in superconductivity. He is a member of American Physical Society, Materials Research Society, and the Japan Society of Applied Physics.
