TU/e confers an honorary doctorate on Yasuhiro Koike.
On april 27th 2007 TU/e confered an honorary doctorate on professor Koike (Keio University, Japan) in recognition of his pioneering research into photonic polymers. A special field of application of his
photonic polymers are polymer fibers for communications. He developed new synthetic fibers, thus making small-scale, broadband and enduring networks feasible.
Yasuhiro Koike has made important contributions to thick and easy to handle optic polymer fibers for communications.
