Dr Yoshishige Tsuchiya is an Associate Professor in the School of Electronics and Computer Science (ECS), University of Southampton. He received a PhD in multidisciplinary science from the University of Tokyo, Japan, where he first observed nonlinear Josephson plasma resonance via his JSPS fellowship on exotic superconductors. He joined the Tokyo Institute of Technology as an Assistant Professor in 2001, where he developed a novel Si nanoelectromechanical (NEM) memory and Si quantum-dot single electron transfer devices under the JST 10-year ‘Neo-Silicon’ project. Since he came to Southampton in 2008, he has developed integrated Si NEM mass sensors, Si spin-qubit devices and energy-reversible NEM switches, under multiple EU- or UK-funded projects of EU FP7 NEMSIC, EPSRC SISSQIT, or EPSRC NOVTLOS working with industrial partners such as Hitachi, NTT, or Honeywell and international collaborators including EPFL, CEA-Leti, IMEC, TU Delft, NIMS, and RIKEN. He has strong technical expertise on silicon nanodevice design and fabrication, electronic and electromechanical device characterisation, and nanoscale imaging. He has published 190 peer-reviewed journal and conference papers.
