The International Microscopy Lecture Series is a collaborative undertaking by four International Microscopy Societies (the Royal Microscopical Society, the Microscopical Society of Canada and the Israel Society for Microscopy and the Brazilian Society of Microscopy and Microanalysis).
Ahead of the lecture an interview between Professor Sumio Iijima and Professor Kazu Suenaga was made.
Professor Sumio Iijima gave a lecture entitled "HRTEM and Materials Science: Past and Present".
Professor at Meijo University and former Director of the Carbon Materials Research Center of the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology. He received his Ph.D. from Tohoku University in 1969 and worked at Arizona State University (1970~1982) and the University of Cambridge (1979). He developed a high-resolution transmission electron microscope and studied many materials. In 1982, Iijima joined the Ultrafine Particles Project (JST) and moved to NEC Research Laboratories. In 1991 he discovered carbon nanotubes, ushering in a new era of nanoscience and nanotechnology. Recently, we have been working on the photothermo-acoustic properties of nanomaterials and atomic-resolution EDS-STEM imaging of complex Ti-Nb oxides. He has received numerous awards, including the Europhysics Prize, the Benjamin Franklin Medal, the Order of Cultural Merit (Emperor), the Balzan Prize, the Prince of Asturias Award, and the Kavli Prize. Member of the Japan Academy, NAS and CAS foreign member.
