Dr. Tetsu Mieno studied plasma physics for 5 years under the supervision of Prof. Noriyoshi Sato in Tohoku University, Japan (Dept. Electronic Engineering), and he was awarded Doctor of Engineering by Tohoku University in 1984. He became an Associate Professor of Shizuoka University (Dept. Physics) in 1992. He studied plasma science (helicon discharge, fine-particle-plasmas, plasma etching, arc discharge, etc.), and nano materials (production of fullerenes, single-walled carbon nanotubes and other carbon nano-materials by the arc discharge method, etc.). In 1999, he became a Professor of Shizuoka University. He is currently studying plasma science and technology, production of functional nano-materials, and utilization of plasma technology for the future.
