We, the organizers of MEF, would like to thank all of participants, lectures, exhibitors. MEF's ten-year short history will be presented.
Hiroki Kuwano received the B.Eng. and M.Eng. degrees in mechanical engineering and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Tohoku University, Sendai, Japan, in 1975, 1977, and 1990, respectively.
He was a Member of the Electrical Communication Laboratories, Nippon Telephone and Telegraph Public Corporation (NTT) for 26 years. He was a visiting scholar at Cornell University in 1988. Since 2003, he has been a Professor at Tohoku University. He has 40 years of experience in research and development and has authored or coauthored over 120 technical papers and books in the fields of MEMS and particle beam processing such as focused ion beams and neutral beams. His interests are SAW sensors, energy harvesters, sensor networks, and multi micro-machined focused ion beam systems particularly for cost effective safety and medical applications.
