Personal homepage

Shinichi. Saito received the Ph. D. degree in the department of physics and applied physics from Waseda University (Japan), in 2000. From 1998 to 2000, he was a Research Associate at Waseda University, where he studied theoretical condensed matter physics of high temperature superconductivity and strongly correlated electrons systems. 

He joined Central Research Laboratory, Hitachi Ltd., in 2000, where he has been engaged in device physics and process technologies of silicon based nanoelectronic and nanophotonic devices. His works include high performance CMOS devices, carrier transport, high-k gate stacks, mobility enhancement, self-organized nanoparticles, flexible thin film transistors, and silicon photonics. He was a Senior Researcher of Hitachi Ltd. In 2003, he won the SSDM paper award for his analysis on the mobility reduction mechanism in high-k gate dielectric transistors. From 2010, he was also with Photonics Electronics Technology Research Association (PETRA) to develop Si based light sources supported by the JSPS FIRST program. In 2011, he won his 2nd SSDM paper award for the development of the Si fin-type light-emitting diode. 

In 2012, he has moved to the University of Southampton as a Professor of Photonics, where he is working in the Nano group for nano-photonics, nano-electronics, and device physics. He published 32 journal papers, 66 international conference papers including 15 invited talks, 59 Japanese domestic conference talks including 27 invited talks, and filed 21 patents. His research results have been press released more than 10 times.
