Speaker Biography (Hiroyuki Nishide)
Hiroyuki Nishide is a Professor in the Department of Applied Chemistry at Waseda University, Tokyo. His research interests include the synthesis and performance of functional polymers: radical polymers for battery, memory and organic magnetic applications, conjugated polymers, membranes for gas separation and proton conduction. He is President of the Society of Polymer Science, Japan and President-Elect of the Federation of Asian Polymer Societies, and serves on the advisory boards of international journals such as Polymer, Macromolecular Chem. Phys. and Green Chemistry.

Terasaki Group belongs to the Department of Applied Physics, Waseda University, Tokyo. They are interested in the physical properties of strongly correlated electron systems, which are often seen in transition-metal oxides and organic conductors. In a strongly correlated system, conduction electrons affect with each other through the strong Coulomb repulsion, and move together in a "correlated" manner. As a result, a conventional band picture is seriously broken down, and new phenomena can arise beyond the prediction of a band theory. They are studying large thermopower in cobalt oxides and giant nonlinear conduction in organic conductors.
