Soshu Kirihara is a doctor of engineering and a professor of the Joining and Welding Research Institute (JWRI), Osaka University, Japan. In his main investigation Materials Tectonics, geometric structures were successfully fabricated to modulate energy and materials flows effectively. Ceramic components were fabricated directly by stereolithographic additive manufacturing using high power ultraviolet laser. Original stereolithography systems were developed and new start-up company SK-Fine was established through academic-industrial collaboration.
