Morinobu Endo to accept Lifetime Achievement Award at
Small Times NanoCon International.

Additional Best of Small Tech Award winners also to be announced at Small Times NanoCon International

Small Times magazine is proud to announce the winner of its 2006 Best of Small Tech Lifetime Achievement Award. Dr. Morinobu Endo will be honored at an awards luncheon at Small Times NanoCon International this September 21 in Las Vegas, NV. He will also be speaking at the luncheon and spending time after the awards ceremony to personally meet event attendees.

This award is given to only one recipient a year and recognizes an individual who has made a lasting and foundational contribution to commercializing micro and nanotechnology, including inventing critical tools, materials and manufacturing methods that help others create new products and build businesses. Professor Endo's work developing manufacturing methods for carbon nanotubes has led directly to commercial applications, has enabled others to use the materials in their work, and has inspired other scientists to explore and harness nanoscale processes.

Dr. Endo began work-ing with carbon nanotubes and related materials in the mid-1970s, back when the “micro”-scale was still the latest thing. Since 1976, he has focused on how to manufacture nanotubes more rapidly and cheaply and how to inte-grate them into useful objects. His research has resulted in ten-fold annual increases in the quantity of nanotubes that can be made with his process and also in vast quality-control improvements. Without his work, nanotubes might be just another carbon oddity rather than the intriguing and promising material they’ve become.

An engineering professor at his alma mater, Shinshu University in Nagano, Japan, Endo today runs a research group whose work includes carbon nano­tubes, new forms of carbon and graphite, nanoporous carbons, lithium-ion batteries and electric double-layer capacitors. He has authored or co-authored more than 40 textbooks and 250 papers in presti­gious journals including Nature, Science and Physical Review. He chairs the Japan Carbon Society and serves on the advisory board of Carbon Journal.

Copyright: 1996 - 2024
    Kirt Blattenberger,

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
