Morinobu Endo was born in Suzaka city, which is located near the center of
Japan's main island.
He studied electrical engineering at Shinshu University in Nagano, Japan,
and obtained his PhD in 1975 from the University of
Orleans, France. It is in his PhD work that he has developed the synthesis method
of carbon nanotubes, and showed that it was a
tubular structure for the first time.
In 1990, he became professor of the Department of Electrical and Electronic
Engineering, Shinshu University. In 1994, he held the
concurrent professorship at Institute of Functional Materials Science, Kyushu
University for four months. From September 2005 to
March 2006, he held the concurrent professorship at the Institute of Multidisciplinary
Research for Advanced Materials, Tohoku
Main interests are science and application of nanocarbons such as carbon nanotubes,
and the development of high-
performance energy storage devices such as Lithium ion battery, electric double
layer capacitor, and fuel cell.
