CSO Kenjiro Kimura

Dr. Kenjiro Kimura
Chief Strategic Officer

Dr. CSO Kenjiro Kimura has developed various world’s first nanometer scale measurement technologies, electron beam control technologies, magnetic imaging devices, nondestructive inspection. At Kyoto University, he studied the two-dimensional carrier profiling method based on scanning probe microscope for semiconductor device, and then, attended the national project of development of sub-nanometer scale resolution atomic force microscope in liquid. At Kobe University, he started a research of multiple electron beam lithography, and succeeded in development of MCP electron beam exposure device with Omegatron Co.,Ltd. Since 2007, he has studied a nondestructive microscope capable of imaging subsurface electric current distribution inside semiconductor devices, and started to develop a TMR microscope with reconstruction software for subsurface electric current visualization with Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. Recently, basic research and practical application research of non-invasive diagnostic imaging system are carried out, and he promotes cooperative researches with various enterprises.
