Shimy won an award for his oral presentation at The 7th International Meeting on Chemical Sensors, held in Beijing International Convention Center, Beijing China, in July 27-30 1998. It is the big conference on chemical sensors. Shimy's talk concerned his work on novel electrodes of Pyrochlore-type oxides for solid electrolyte device, to produce high-performance NO and NO2 sensors.

3/ SHIMY WINS An ITE Research Award: 2004!

Shimy won an award for his outstanding research of "Development of Functional Ceramic Catalyst for Gas-Diffusion Electrode", from International Technology Exchange Society, USA, in May 1, 2004.

4/ SHIMY WINS A Seiyama PRIZE: 2005!

Shimy won an award for his outstanding research of "Development of Novel Sensor Device with Functional Ceramic Electrode", from Japan Association of Chemical Sensors, The Electrochemical Society of Japan, in Jan 18, 2005.
