Hiroshi Amekura

National Institute for Materials Science, Japan

Dr. Amekura is a Chief researcher of Ion Beam Group, Quantum Beam Unit, National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS). He has received BS and MS in the field of Solid State Physics from the University of Tokyo, in 1989 and 1991, respectively. Since 1991, he has joined in National Research Institute for Metals (NRIM) and been working using ion beams. In 1999, he received PhD in the field of Materials Science. From 2001, the name of the institute has changed to NIMS, and also the subjects have changed to nanoparticles fabricated by ion beams. His areas of expertise are represented by following keywords: - Ion beam, Ion Implantation, Ion Irradiation, radiation-induce phenomena by ion beams - Inorganic nanoparticles embedded in a transparent matrix - Optical properties, solid state spectroscopy Relevant materials: - nanoparticles of ZnO, Cu2O, CuO, NiO, V2O5 fabricated by non-Chemical methods - nanoparticles of metals, such as Zn, Cu, Ni, Au, Ag, etc, fabricated by non-Chemical methods - silver halides - isolated Tb ions embedded in a inorganic matrix
