Keynote
Breakthrough in optical ceramics

Akio Ikesue
World Lab. Co., Japan

Dr. Akio Ikesue is CEO of World Lab. company in Japan. He received B.S (1981), M.S (1983), and Eng. Doctor (1996) in Material Engineering, Nagaoka University of Technology. He worked in Kurosaki Refractory Co. (1983-1995), FANUC Co.(1996-1998) and Japan Fine Ceramic Center (1999-2004). His research exercise was development of high performance refractories in steel industry during 13 years.

He demonstrated í░ High Efficiency Laser Generation by Polycrystalline Ceramicí▒ for first time in the world in 1995. After that, he had been developing ceramic optics like solid-state laser with various type, scintillator for PET scanner, LED phosphor for lighting system etc. and some his technology already applied to industry. He could succeed making optical grade TYO and TAG ceramic which couldní»tííproduce current crystal growth technology and demonstrated Faraday rotator devices using new materials.

His paper (including technical book) and invited (including plenary) talk is >150 each other. He received lot of awards from Jpn. Laser Soc., Jpn. Appl. Phys. Soc., Am. Ceram. Soc. and Ernst-Abbe Fund (Ger). etc.
