5th JSAP Fellow (2011)

2011 JSAP Fellow Award Recipients

Kenjiro Oura
Chairman of the Fifth Fellow Award Candidate Selection Committee
The Japan Society of Applied Physics

The Japan Society of Applied Physics (JSAP) has established a new award (Fellow Award) to honor its research members who have greatly contributed to the progress of applied physics through their continuous activities in JSAP, in addition to the existing awards such as the Outstanding Achievement Award and JSAP Outstanding Paper Award. Established in 2007, the Fellow Award was presented to 86 members in the initial year, 73 in 2008, 68 in 2009, 30 in 2010, and 18 in its fifth year of 2011.

The guidelines on the fifth Fellow Awards were announced in Oyo Buturi (Vol. 79, No. 9), the Japanese language journal of the Society; 30 candidates were nominated by JSAP members and fellows. Each candidate was carefully screened on the basis of their accomplishments in research, technological development, and educational and public-interest activities. After three meetings convened by Fellow Award Candidate Selection Committee, the number of candidates was finally narrowed down to 18. This selection result was approved by the Board of JSAP on 13 May 2011.

The Fifth JSAP Fellows Award Ceremony will be held during the 2011 Fall Meeting, which will start on 29 August 2011.

We express our deepest gratitude to all those who nominated the many award-worthy candidates. It is our expectation that excellent candidates will continue to be nominated and that the Fellow Award will develop into an authoritative award of JSAP.
