The American Ceramic Society (ACerS), which brings together researchers in ceramics from the United States and around the world, awards the title of Society Fellow to individual members who have made outstanding achievements in advancing the field of ceramics. Professor Yuji Iwamoto was nominated as a Fellow of ACerS for 2021, and was determined to receive the award in April 2022. (The award ceremony will be held in Pittsburgh in October this year).
Achievements of Professor Yuji Iwamoto
He has continued working on structure control of ceramics using chemical structure design of organometallic precursors, which he started in earnest in 1995 at the Fine Ceramics Research Association Synergy Ceramics Laboratory, to which he belonged. Reports on the research results made at NITech include the creation of hydrogen energy materials, such as novel hydrogen affinity materials, hydrogen-responsive chemical valve membranes and organic/inorganic hybrid membranes for solar hydrogen purification, and oxynitride-based ceramic phosphors.
As an active member of ACerS, he has been involved in organizing symposia on Polymer-Derived Ceramics (PDCs) and Porous Ceramics at international conferences organized by ACerS (Annual meeting, MS&T, ICACC, PacRim, etc.) as one of the organizers for many years.
I was able to receive the Society Fellow award thanks to being nominated by professors from Clemson University (U.S.), the Technical University of Darmstadt (Germany), CNRS-IRCER (France), the University of Padua (Italy), the Slovak Academy of Sciences (Slovakia), FAU (Germany), and Seoul National University (Korea), with whom I have exchanges in my research fields described above, and researchers from the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) and corporate institutions in Japan. I would like to take this opportunity to thank them all.
