STAM Awards

Congratulations! The Japan Prize Winner: Professor Hideo Hosono, Author of Science and Technology of Advanced Materials

Back to Awards page

The Japan Prize is awarded annually to scientists and engineers from around the world who have made significant contributions to the advancement of science and technology, thereby furthering the cause of peace and prosperity of mankind.

Each year, two fields of scientific endeavor are honored. This year, in the “Materials and Production” field, Dr. Hideo Hosono has been awarded the 2016 Japan Prize for his achievements in the “creation of unconventional inorganic materials with novel electronic functions based on nano-structure engineering”.

Over the years, Prof. Hosono has been a dedicated advisory board member to the journal Science and Technology of Advanced Materials (STAM). His colleagues from the STAM Board would like to express their heartfelt congratulations to Prof. Hosono.

Taylor & Francis also celebrates this achievement with Prof. Hosono and we are proud to present his work published in various Taylor & Francis journals. This collection features his latest review article on: ‘Exploration of new superconductors and functional materials, and fabrication of superconducting tapes and wires of iron pnictides’.

Read all about Prof. Hosono's research journey and dreams here.
