Yoshio Bando received a Ph.D. degree at Osaka University in 1975 and joined the National Institute for Research in Inorganic Materials (now National Institute for Materials Science, NIMS) in the same year. He is now a Fellow of NIMS and a Chief Operating Officer (COO) of the International Center for Materials Nanoarchitectonics (WPI-MANA). From 1979 to 1981, he was a visiting scientist at the Arizona State University, USA. He served as a Professor of Tsukuba University from 1992 to 2008. Since 2008, he has been an Adjunct Professor at Waseda University.
Yoshio Bando has received a number of awards including the 3rd Thomson Reuters Research Front Award (2012), the 16th Tsukuba Prize (2005), Academic Awards from the Japanese Ceramic Society (1997) and the Seto Award from the Japanese Society for Electron Microscopy (1994). He is now an adjunct member of the Science Council of Japan and also a Fellow of The American Ceramic Society. He has been selected as an ISI Highly Cited Researcher in Materials Science.
Professor Bando’s current research concentrates on the synthesis and properties of novel inorganic 1D/2D nanomaterials and their in-situ TEM analysis. His recent papers include:
