Kaoru Yokoya


Dr. Kaoru Yokoya received his Bachelor of Science in 1970, Master of Science in 1972 and a Ph.D. in 1986, all from the University of Tokyo.

He became a Research Associate in KEK (High Energy Accelerator Research Organization) in 1977 and worked for the design of the electron-positron collider project called TRISTAN. He published several papers on the problems related to beam instability, beam polarization, and electron storage ring designs.

He started a research on linear colliders around 1985 when the Japanese linear collider project JLC began. Since then until now his main subject has been the beam dynamics in linacs and the collision point physics.

He was awarded the Nishina Memorial Prize in 1990 for his work on beam dynamics in accelerators, including the beam-beam interaction in linear colliders and the polarized electron beam in electron storage rings.
