Dr. Tetsu Mieno studied plasma physics for 5 years under the supervision of Prof. Noriyoshi Sato in Tohoku University (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, negative ions, plasma etching, arc discharge, etc.), and nano materials (production of fullerenes, endohedral metallo-fullerenes, single-walled carbon nanotubes by the arc discharge method, etc.). In 1999, he became a professor of Shizuoka University. Now, he is studying about plasma science and technology, production of functional nano-materials and utilization of plasma technology for future world.
