Prof. Hiroyuki Uenohara was awarded as a Fellow from the institute of Electronics, Information and Communicatoin Engineers on March 19th in the fiscal year of 2019.
The Fellow is awarded to the members who is regarded to highly contribute to the IEICE through the advanced researches, educational aspect to the young aged people, and activities in the IEICE. The title of the Fellow awarded to Prof. Uenohara is "Advanced Research on Photonic Devices and Their System Application of Optical Signal Processing." The key technology is to realize high-speed and low-latency signal processing using the physical phenomena of semiconductor devices related to photonics and contribute to the realization of a high-capacity optical fiber communication society.
As for activities in the IEICE, Prof. Uenohara was a Chair of Optoelectronics Study Group in 2015, and President of Electronics Society in 2017. He focused on the belief that the value and source of academic activities were discussions and information exchange among R & D personnel, and worked on enhancing a smooth environment.
