Distinguished Professor at Shinshu University,

Director of Endo Special Laboratory at The Institute of Carbon Science and Technology,

Research Leader for Global Aqua Innovation Center, Shinshu University 


Biography:

Professor Morinobu Endo studied electrical engineering at Shinshu University in Nagano, Japan, and obtained Ph.D. in Engineering in 1978 from Nagoya University. In his doctor thesis, he developed the synthesis method of carbon nanotubes, and showed a tubular structure of carbon for the first time in 1976. In 1990, he became a professor of the Department of Electrical Engineering, Shinshu University. His present posts are a Distinguished Professor of Shinshu University, the Director of Endo Special Laboratory at The Institute of Carbon Science and Technology and Research Leader for Global Aqua Innovation Center, Shinshu University. His current interests are science and technology of nanocarbons such as carbon nanotubes, graphene and the development of high-performance energy storage devices (lithium ion battery, electric double layer capacitor and fuel cell) based on the advanced “nanocarbons”.
