Koichi Maezawa was born in Tokyo, Japan, in 1959. He received a B.E. degree in applied physics, an M.S. degree in physics, and the Ph.D. degree in applied physics from Waseda University, Tokyo, Japan, in 1982, 1984, and 1993, respectively. He was engaged in the research and development of heterostructure FETs and quantum effect devices at NTT from 1984 to 1997 and at Nagoya University from 1997 to 2006. He is currently a Professor at the Graduate School of Science and Engineering, University of Toyama. His current interests include heterostructure FETs, resonant tunneling devices, MBE growth of quantum structures, and applications of quantum functional devices to new architectures for computation. Dr. Maezawa is a Member of the Japan Society of Applied Physics, the Physical Society of Japan, the Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication Engineers of Japan, and the IEEE Electron Devices Society.
