Oleg Berman works as an Associate Professor of physics at New York City College of Technology of the City University of New York (CUNY), New York City, NY, USA. After obtaining his Ph.D. degree in physics at the Institute of Spectroscopy of Russian Academy of Sciences (Pushchino, Russia), followed by Postdoctoral Research at the University of Rochester (Rochester, NY, USA), University of Pittsburgh (Pittsburgh, Pa, USA), and Hunter College of CUNY, he came to New York City College of Technology of CUNY in 2007. His research interests include the electron optical properties of low-dimensional nanostructures, including graphene, photonic crystals, Bose-Einstein condensation, and superfluidity of excitons and polaritons in nanostructures. He is conducting research in theoretical condensed matter physics that is focused on the understanding of and a theoretical description of spontaneous coherence of bosons in low-dimensional solid state nanostructures, such as graphene, quantum wells, quantum dots, superlattices in semiconductors, and Bose-Einstein condensation of quasiparticles. Berman developed the theories for the phase transitions in the excitonic systems in semiconductor quantum wells and graphene, proposed the novel type of graphene-based photonic crystals, and suggested using their optical properties for technological applications. He has more than 50 publications in prestigious peer-reviewed physics journals.
