7th JSAP Fellow (2013)

2013 JSAP Fellow Award Recipients

Hiroshi ISHIWARA
Chairman of the 7th Fellow Awards Candidate Selection Committee
The Japan Society of Applied Physics

The Japan Society of Applied Physics (JSAP) established JSAP Fellow Award in 2007, to honor its research members who have contributed greatly to the progress of applied physics through their continuous activities in JSAP. The Fellow Awards were presented to 86 members in 2007, 73 in 2008, 68 in 2009, 30 in 2010, 18 in 2011 and 27 in 2012 (4 are JSAP Fellows International).

The nominations for the JSAP Fellow and the JSAP Fellow International were solicited in Oyo Buturi (Vol. 81, No. 9), the Japanese language journal of our society. 21 candidates for the JSAP Fellow and 4 candidates for JSAP Fellow International were nominated by our members. Each candidate was carefully screened on the basis of their accomplishments in research, technological development, and educational and public-interest activities. After two meetings convened by Fellow Awards Candidate Selection Committee, the number of candidates was finally narrowed down to 15. Additional review on the contribution to our society was done to select the final 3 candidates of the JSAP Fellow International. This selection results were approved by the Board of JSAP on 9 May, 2013.

The 7th JSAP Fellow Award Ceremony will be held during the 2013 JSAP Autumn Meeting, which will open on 16 September 2013. The commemorative talks by the JSAP Fellow International recipients are also planned on 16 September.

We express our deepest gratitude to all those who nominated many award-worthy candidates and who contribute their time to select the candidates. We hope that more and more excellent candidates will be nominated and that the Fellow Award will develop into authoritative awards of JSAP.
