The International Zavoisky Award 2011
Professor Seigo Yamauchi is distinguished for his contribution to multi-resonance and multi-frequency time-resolved EPR spectroscopy in elucidating the electronic structures of excited states in organic and metallo-organic complexes.
Professor Seigo Yamauchi
Professor Seigo Yamauchi works at the Tohoku University, Sendai (Japan). The Yamauchi EPR laboratory in Sendai excels by its scientific staff and its highly motivated students, by its state-of-the-art instrumentation for pulsed multi-frequency EPR spectroscopy (mostly laboratory-built) and its scientific and personal attraction for international cooperation partners.
Up to now his outstanding work was recognized by the awards:
Research Areas Scientific interests of Seigo Yamauchi are focused on new fields of EPR methodological developments and applications, focusing on spin chemistry in excited states, spin polarization phenomena in chemical reactions, and new materials in molecular sciences. In the last years, he works actively in the field of multi-resonance and multi-frequency EPR spectroscopy on excited porphyrin and fullerene complexes as well as on proteins and biological models systems.
