Ovidiu Crisan is a Senior Researcher and a Member of the Scientific Board of the National Institute for Materials Physics, Bucharest, Romania. He obtained his Ph.D. degree at the Université de Rouen, France, in 1998, with a thesis on the study of the influence of rare earth on the structure and magnetism of nanocrystalline soft magnetic alloys. He has worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow and a Research Associate in various universities and research institutes in Israel, France, Greece, Italy, Poland, Germany, Lithuania, and UK. His research interests range from molecular nanostructures to self-assembled core-shell nanoparticles and nanoclusters or from intermetallic alloys and thin films to nanomagnetism and advanced innovative nanomaterials. He was awarded the Diploma of Excellence in Research by the National Agency for Scientific Research, Romania, in 2000, for his work in giant magnetoresistive exchange-coupled heterogranular alloys. He was also awarded, in 2006, the “Horia Hulubei” Prize, a once-in-a-lifetime award, by the Romanian Academy, Physics Section, for outstanding results in the field of innovative magnetic materials with high applicative potential. He is an Expert Evaluator for the Nanotechnology Strategy Initiative 2009–2013 of the Romanian Ministry of Research and a Peer-reviewer for various leading international journals such as Nanotechnology, New Journal of Physics, J. Phys. D: Appl. Phys, J. Phys. Condens. Matter, J. Alloys & Compounds, Materials Letters, J. Magn. Magn. Mater., and Vacuum. He has authored over 60 peer-reviewed articles in ISI journals and book chapters and has contributed with more than 100 communications at international conferences.
