Satoshi Tomita was born in Kobe, Japan, in 1973. He received the B.E. degree in 1997, M.S. degree of engineering in 1999, and Ph.D. degree (science) in 2002 from Kobe University, Japan. After obtaining the Ph.D. degree, Tomita was in RIKEN (the Institute of Physical and Chemical Research) in Japan as a postdoctoral fellow. From 2002 to 2006, he served as a Principal Investigator of JST-PRESTO at RIKEN. In 2006, Tomita moved to Nara Institute of Science and Technology (NAIST), which was one of the Japanese national universities only with graduate schools. Presently, he serves as an Assistant Professor in the Graduate School of Materials Science of NAIST. He is mainly interested in experimental investigation of electromagnetism of nanostructured materials: optical properties of carbon nanostructures, magnetic resonance in magnetic nanostructures, surface plasmons in metallic nanostructures, and metamaterials in microwave and optical frequencies. Tomita has been a Member of the Physical Society of Japan (PSJ), Japan Society of Applied Physics (JSAP), Magnetics Society of Japan (MSJ), American Physical Society (APS), and Material Research Society (MRS).
