Ninth International Conference on
& Micromechanics of Fracture
in Brno, Czech Republic, June 26 - 28, 2019
Invited plenary speaker
Prof. Dr. Takeshi Egami
Prof. Dr. Takeshi Egami received his Bachelor's degree in Applied Physics from the University of Tokyo in 1968, and his Ph.D. in Materials Science from the University of Pennsylvania in 1971. After the postdoctoral research at the University of Sussex, U.K. and Max-Planck-Institute in Stuttgart, Germany, he returned to the University of Pennsylvania in 1973 as Assistant Professor. He was promoted to Associate Professor in 1976, to Professor in 1980, and was the Chair of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering (1997 to 2002). In 2003 he moved to the University of Tennessee as UT-ORNL Distinguished Scientist/Professor at Department of Materials Science and Engineering and Department of Physics and Astronomy, with join appointment at Materials Science and Technology Division, Oak Ridge National Laboratory. He was Director of UT-ORNL Joint Institute for Neutron Sciences (JINS) (2008-2015).
He is known for promoting the use of the PDF technique to the study of complex crystalline materials and developing a theory of liquids and glasses based upon the concept of the atomic-level stresses. He has published 1 book, 30 full reviews and over 540 technical papers, received more than 15 000 citations (H-index = 67, Scopus).
He received 2010 J. D. Hanawalt Award from International Center for Diffraction Data, 2003 B. E. Warren Award for Diffraction Physics from American Crystallography Association, Metal Physics Achievement Award from Japan Institute of Metals (1988), Robert Lansing Hardy Gold Medal from TMS-AIME (1974), and other awards. He is Fellow of the American Physical Society and the Neutron Scattering Society of America. He gave over 340 invited technical presentations at national and international conferences, in addition to numerous seminars.
