Brief CV
I specialize in materials science and nanotechnology with a background in applied physics and chemistry. My main expertise lies in laser processing, gas and liquid-phase synthesis of nanostructured materials, zinc oxide and carbon-based materials. I also have extensive experience in materials characterization.
Micro- and Nanofabrication processes:
Chemical vapour deposition (CVD), plasma-enhanced CVD, laser-induced CVD, Metalorganic CVD, pulsed laser deposition (PLD), laser-induced chemical liquid deposition (LCLD), laser pyrolysis, photolithography, solution and sol-gel hemical synthesis.
Characterization techniques:
Raman spectroscopy, scanning (SEM) and transmission (TEM) electron microscopy, X-ray (XRD) and electron (SAED) diffraction, X-ray energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS), Infrared absorption (FT-IR), Photoluminescence spectroscopy (PL), Atomic force microscopy (AFM).
