Dr. Masato Sagawa
Daido Steel Co. Ltd.
Development of R-Fe-X permanent magnets (R=Rare Earth, X=B,C,N)
Masato Sagawa received his BS and MS degrees in electrical engineering from Kobe University in 1966 and 1968, respectively, and his doctoral degree in Materials Science from Tohoku University in 1972.
He joined Fujitsu Ltd. in 1972 as a research engineer, where he began working on magnetic materials for electric relays.
He started research on Fe-based rare earth permanent magnets as a private research item and reached to a prototype of Nd-Fe-B in early 1980s.
He left Fujitsu in 1982 and joined Sumitomo Special Metals Co. in 1982 and there he filed the first patent on the Nd-Fe-B permanent magnets on August 21, 1982.
His awards include: Osaka Science Prize (1984), American Physical Society International Prize for New Materials (1990), Asahi Prize (1990), Japan Magnetics Society Prize (1991), Acta Metallurgica J. Hollomon Award(1998), Honda Kinen Prize (2003), Japan Prize (2012) and NIMS Award(2018).
He is working for Daido Steel Co. Ltd. as adviser since October 2016.
