Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Optics
  • Composite material
  • Mechanical engineering

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Composite material, Acoustics, Tactile sensor, Cantilever and Structural engineering. While the research belongs to areas of Composite material, he spends his time largely on the problem of Thin film, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Surface plasmon resonance sensor, Light source and Prism. His study in the field of Vibration also crosses realms of Flight dynamics.

His study in Tactile sensor is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Electrical conductor, Electrical engineering, Ranging and Silicone rubber. The various areas that Isao Shimoyama examines in his Cantilever study include Optoelectronics, Piezoresistive effect, Sensitivity and Voltage. His Structural engineering study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Mechanical engineering, Magnet, Polyimide and Shear stress.

His most cited work include:

  • Dynamic Walk of a Biped (400 citations)
  • A shear stress sensor for tactile sensing with the piezoresistive cantilever standing in elastic material (150 citations)
  • Enantiomeric switching of chiral metamaterial for terahertz polarization modulation employing vertically deformable MEMS spirals (136 citations)
