About the Author
Dr. Hiroaki Okamoto is co-editor of ASM's primary binary phase diagrams reference work, the 3-volume set Binary Alloys Phase Diagrams, Second Edition [Massalski2]. He has personally evaluated and published phase diagrams and related data for more systems than any other living professional, completing 505 evaluations.
Dr. Okamoto has also published classic articles on common mistakes made in drawing phase diagrams, including "Thermodynamically Improbable Phase Diagrams," "Reevaluation of Thermodynamic Models for Phase Diagram Evaluation," and "Guidelines for Binary Phase Diagram Assessment" (Journal of Phase Equilibria, 12(2), 12(6), and 14(3), respectively). He has been Supplemental Literature Review Editor for Journal of Phase Equilibria and Diffusion since 1991.
Presently professor, Department of Information Management, Asahi University, Hozumi-cho, Gifu, Japan, Dr. Okamoto was senior technical editor, Alloy Phase Diagram Program, ASM International, from 1987 through 1993. He obtained his master's degree in applied physics from Nagoya University in 1965, and his doctorate in metallurgy from the University of Illinois in 1971. Earlier in his career, he worked on the evaluation of binary gold systems at Carnegie-Mellon University in Pittsburgh and on the evaluation of beryllium alloy systems at the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory in California. He was editor of Phase Diagrams of Binary Iron Alloys (ASM International, 1993), and co-editor of Phase Diagrams of Binary Gold Alloys, Phase Diagrams of Binary Beryllium Alloys, and Phase Diagrams of Binary Indium Alloys and Their Engineering Applications (ASM International, 1987, 1987, and 1991, respectively). He was also a co-editor of the 10-volume Handbook of Ternary Alloy Phase Diagrams (ASM International, 1995).
