Invited talk
Yoshio Sakka is a Senior Scientist at National Institute for Materials Science. He received his B.E. in 1978, M.E in 1980, and Ph. D. in 1983 from Kyushu University for his work on cationic diffusion of zirconia solid solution systems.¡¡After receiving his Ph.D, he joined the National Research Institute for Metals (present NIMS). During 1991-92, he stayed a year in University of Washington. His current interests are to fabricate innovative ceramics that show novel individual property and/or multi-functional properties among electric, dielectric, thermal, optical, chemical and mechanical properties through the development of nanoparticle processing. He is the author or coauthor of 19 books, above 600 original referee¡¯s papers, above 100 review papers, and above 80 patents (including application). By the above establishment, he received many awards, such as Fulrath award from American Ceramic Society (2000), academic achievement from Japanese Ceramic Society (2005), Chinese Ceramic Society Award (2005), Academy member of World Academy of Ceramics (2009), Richard Brook Award from European Ceramic Society (June, 2011), Fellow of Japanese Ceramic Society (2015), Fellow of American Ceramic Society (2017).
