Meet Our 2018 Recipient

Ichiro Takeuchi
Professor, Materials and Science Engineering

Professor Takeuchi pioneered the combinatorial approach, allowing synthesis and screening of a large number of different compounds to rapidly discover new materials. This research — applicable to a range of topics, from materials for information technology and medical devices, to high-strength metallic allows and renewable energy materials — has led to several discoveries, including the invention of elastocaloric cooling, an alternative non-vapor compression cooling technology.
