Prof. Samukawa selected as the 2019 IEEE Distinguished Lecturer



The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) is the world's largest professional organization of technology specialists. It consists of approximately 500,000 members in more than 160 countries. These members contribute to the development of technological innovation in electrical and electronic engineering, making the IEEE one of the world's most prestigious professional organizations. IEEE Distinguished Lecturers are science and technology experts who give lectures at research laboratories and conferences around the world. As distinguished lecturers, they carry out an important role in creating and developing a global community in their field of specialization.

The IEEE Nanotechnology Council has selected ten scientists as Distinguished Lecturers for 2019. They were chosen for their achievements in their fields of expertise, for their presentation techniques, and for their thirst for advancement and sophistication as demonstrated in their lecture presentations in the field of nanotechnology. Professor Seiji Samukawa of AIMR was selected as one of the IEEE Distinguished Lecturers for 2019 (新しいタブで開きます)).
