    2. Apparently pointing out poor reporting. How hard is it to say "Nobukazu Teranishi, inventor of the ube flavored popsicle, receives...?"

    3. Well, I guess some readers are not image sensor technologists so I suppose it is a fair point. Nobu is considered the primary inventor of the pinned photodiode (although that name comes from Kodak years later) which was used in most interline CCDs and in most CMOS image sensors today. We won some other prize together with Mike Tompsett and George Smith in 2017. He is also past President of the Int. Image Sensor Society (and a co-founder).

    4. You are right, I've added "inventor of the pinned photodiode" to the post.
