Hideo Hosono (細野秀雄, Hosono Hideo, born September 7, 1953), FRS, is a Japanese material scientist most known for the discovery of iron-based superconductors.[1][2]

Career and research[edit]

Hosono is also a pioneer in developing transparent oxide semiconductors: he proposed a material design concept for an transparent amorphous oxide semiconductor (TAOS) with large electron mobility, demonstrated the excellent performance of TAOS thin film transistors for next generation displays and successfully converted a cement constituent 12CaO·7Al2O3 into transparent semiconductor, metal, and eventually superconductors.[3][4] [5]
