Hiroshi Murata

Osaka University, Japan

Hiroshi Murata received his B.E., M.E., and D. Eng. degrees in electrical engineering from Osaka University, Osaka, Japan in 1988, 1990, and 1998, respectively, for theoretical and experimental studies on the guided-wave systems with third-order optical nonlinearity and their applications to all-optical functional devices. In 1991, he joined the Department of Electrical Engineering, Faculty of Engineering Science, Osaka University, where he works now as an Associate Professor in the Division of Advanced Electronics and Optical Science. His works are concerned with integrated optics, nonlinear optics, microwave/millimeter-wave photonics, and polarization-reversal technologies. He is the author or the coauthor of more than 100 technical publications in these areas and also holds several patents. Professor Murata is a Member of the Technical Program Committee of the Japan Society of Applied Physics (JSAP) from 2006 to 2012. He serves as an Associate Editor of the IEICE Electronics Express (ELEX) in the Institute of Electronics and Information and Communication Engineers (IEICE). He also works as a Guest Editor of the Journal Advances in OptoElectronics, on the special issue “Progress in domain-engineered photonic materials”, from 2007 to 2008. He is also a Member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), Photonics and MTT societies, the Optical Society of America (OSA), the JSAP, the IEICE, and the Laser Society of Japan. Professor Murata was the recipient of the 35th European Microwave Conference (EuMC) Microwave Prize in 2005.
