Yoshihiko Takeda

National Institute for Materials Science, Japan


Yoshihiko Takeda received an M.S. degree and a D.Eng degree from Tohoku University, Sendai, Japan, in 1988 and 1994, respectively. Takeda had served at the Advanced Thin Film Laboratory and Recording Media Research Laboratory, Teijin Ltd., Tokyo, Japan, from 1988 to1996, where he performed research and development on magnetooptical recording media and phase-change optical recording media. Takeda has researched on the fabrication of nanoparticles and the control of nanostructures with heavy ion beam techniques and transient optical response and optical nonlinearity of nanoparticle materials with femtosecond spectroscopy from 1996 in National Research Institute for Metals (NRIM), Tsukuba, Japan, (Since 2001, NRIM has merged with the National Institute for Research in Inorganic Materials to form an independent administrative institution: National institute for Material Science (NIMS).) Presently, Takeda serves as a Group Leader of the Ion Beam Group in the Quantum Beam Unit at NIMS. Concurrently, Takeda has held the post of an Associate Professor from 2004 to 2011 and a Professor at the Doctoral Program in Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Tsukuba, Tsukuba, Japan, from 2011 till present. His current research interests include hybrid photonic materials of organic and inorganic nanomaterials and application of shape-controlled nanoparticles to photonic materials and medical fields.
