Tetsuzo  Yoshimura Author of Evaluating Organization Development

Tetsuzo Yoshimura

Professor Emeritus
Tokyo University of Technology

Tetsuzo Yoshimura studied optoelectronic organic thin films, nonlinear optical materials, and polymer optical circuits at Fujitsu Laboratories, and invented Molecular Layer Deposition (MLD) and Self-Organized Lightwave Network (SOLNET). He planned integrated optical interconnects within computers at FCPT, San Jose, California. He extended the SOLNET/MLD research for self-aligned optical couplings (Optical Solder), solar cells, and cancer therapy at Tokyo University of Technology.


Tetsuzo Yoshimura was born in Tokyo, Japan, in 1951, and graduated from Tokyo Metropolitan Aoyama High School in 1970. He received a BSc degree in Physics from Tohoku University in 1974, and MSc and PhD degrees in Physics from Kyoto University in 1976 and 1985, respectively.

In 1976, he joined Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd., where he was engaged in research on dye-sensitization, electrochromic thin films, amorphous super lattices, organic nonlinear optical materials, and polymer optical circuits. He invented the molecular layer deposition (MLD) and the self-organized lightwave network (SOLNET).

From 1997 to 2000, he worked at Fujitsu Computer Packaging Technologies, Inc. (FCPT), San Jose, California, where he planned the strategy on integrated optical interconnects within computers.

From 2001 to 2017, he was a professor of Tokyo University of Technology, where he extended the research on SOLNET-based optoelectronics and MLD-based nanotechnologies for optical interconnects with self-aligned optical couplings (Optical Solder), solar energy conversion systems, and cancer therapy.

He is currently a professor emeritus of Tokyo University of Technology, a scientific writer, and a musician in a rock group, The TYNC (Kekyo & Yoritan Records).
