Yosuke Takahashi is deputy general manager of Research and Development Center at Noritake Co., Limited, Japan.
He graduated from Department of Pure and Applied Chemistry, Tokyo University of Science, in 1999. He received Master’s degree of Pure and Applied Chemistry from Tokyo University of Science in 2001 and joined Noritake Co., Limited in the same year. He received Doctor’s degree of Engineering from Department of Frontier Materials, Nagoya Institute of Technology in 2011.
His research focuses on development of mixed-ion conducting ceramics of perovskite oxides and glass sealing materials. He also developed process technologies using these materials for solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) and oxygen permeable membranes at Noritake Co., Limited. Some of these materials he developed are mass-produced and industrialized. His research of highly-efficient and low-cost ceramics materials and their processes has contributed to step toward the practical use of SOFC.
He has also participated in various governmental projects as a leading researcher. In the Strategic Innovation Promotion Program that he joined, ammonia is expected as a carbon-free energy carrier for the new generation. With the SOFC which can directly use ammonia, he has demonstrated the world’s largest experiment of power generation using ammonia.
He has been an author of 17 technical articles. He holds 111 registered patents in Japan, 3 registered patents in the US, and 6 registered patents in other countries.
