Roman Yavetskiy received his Ph.D. degree in physics and math specializing in solid-state physics in 2005 from Institute for Single Crystals, NAS of Ukraine, his M.S. degree in physics of metals from Kharkov State Polytechnic University, Ukraine, and his B.S. degree in physics of metals from Kharkov State Polytechnic University, Ukraine. From 2008 till now he works as Head of the Laboratory of Optical Nanoceramics, Department of Complex Crystalline Materials, Institute for Single Crystals, NAS of Ukraine. In 2005 –2077 he served as a Researcher at Institute for Single Crystals, NAS of Ukraine. In 2000–2005 he worked as an Engineer at Institute for Single Crystals, NAS of Ukraine, Kharkov, Ukraine (http://www.isc.kharkov.com/english/isc/). His research activities include fabrication and characterization of nanocrystalline and nanostructured materials and development of functional optical ceramics (including glass ceramics and nanostructured ceramics) on the basis of refractory oxides for photonics, laser, and scintillation techniques (2007 to date); growth and characterization of complex borate single crystals for storage phosphors, optimization of growth technology, and radiation-induced defects in complex borate single crystals (2000–2007). In 2006, he was awarded The President’s of Ukraine Prize for Young Scientists for the Series of the Scientific Articles The radiation-induced processes in new scintillation crystals of complex fluorides and borates.
