Dr Yoshishige Tsuchiya
Yoshishige Tsuchiya is a Lecturer in Nanotechnology in the Electronics and Computer Science, University of Southampton since 2008. He started his research career as a JSPS young scientist research fellow in 1998, gaining experimental skills in RF/microwave measurements and received his PhD in multidisciplinary science from the University of Tokyo, Japan in 2001. He joined the Tokyo Institute of Technology as an Assistant Professor and worked on nano-scale silicon devices and technology. Being involved in the 10-year JST ‘Neo-Silicon’ project, he worked on developing novel functional devices with integration of bottom-up-grown and top-down-fabricted nanostructures, such as nanoelectromechanical (NEM) memories and quantum dot transistors. He was also in charge of investigating novel high Κ dielectric thin films as an alternative gate dielectric material in MOSFETs. Since he moved to Southampton, he worked on NEM-integrated silicon nanodevices for chemical and biological sensors under EU funding and on spin-based qubit devices and novel non-volatile nanoelectromechanical logic devices under EPSRC fundings.
