Tadahiko Mizuno (水野 忠彦 Mizuno Tadahiko?, born 1945) is a Japanese nuclear-chemist known for his work on cold fusion.[5] He was a former assistant professor teaching the Atomic Power Environmental Materials program at Hokkaido University.[2][2][3][6][7] He was also a member of Energy Environmental Institute of Engineering at Hokkaido University until 2009.[6]


Early lifeEdit

Mizuno graduated from the Department of Applied Physics, Hokkaido University, Faculty of Engineering in March 1968.[2][5][6][7] In March 1970, he graduated with a master's degree from the Department of Applied Physics, Hokkaido University, Faculty of Engineering.[2][5][6][7] In April 1972 he completed his doctorate degree in Engineering at Hokkaido University, Faculty of Engineering, Department of Engineering.[2][5][6][7] In March 1976, he received his doctorate in Engineering for "Study on formation process of hydride on the surface of Ti by d, n reaction” Teaching; Atomic Engineering, Corrosion, X-rays analysis, Electron microscope, Exercise: Mathematics, Physical Engineering.[2][5][6][7]


He was awarded The International Society for Condensed Matter Nuclear Science Prizes (Giuliano Preparata medal) in 2004 from The International Society for Condensed Matter Nuclear Science (ISCMNS).[4][6] The ISCMNS is the organizer of a conference and a workshop on cold fusion and related topics.
