Sergey Maksimenko received the M.S. degree in physics of heat and mass transfer in 1976 and the Ph.D. degree in theoretical physics in 1988, both from Belarus State University (BSU), Minsk, Belarus, and the D.S. degree in theoretical physics in 1996 from the Institute of Applied Physics of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus. Since 1992, he has been working as the Head of the Laboratory of Electrodynamics of Nonhomogeneous Media at the Institute for Nuclear Problems (INP), BSU. He also teaches at the BSU Physical Department. From 1997 to 2000, he has been INP Deputy Director, and from 2000 to 2005, BSU Deputy Vice President. In addition, he has authored or coauthored more than 150 conference and journal papers. In 2003, 2004, and 2006 years, he cochaired conferences such as Nanotubes and Nanowires, Nanomodelling, and Nanomodelling II, as parts of SPIE's 48th and 49th Annual Meetings, and SPIE’s Optics & Photonics, respectively. Maksimenko, an SPIE Fellow, is the Associate Editor of the Journal of Nanophotonics. His current research interests are electromagnetic wave theory and electromagnetic processes in quasi-one- and zero-dimensional nanostructures in condensed matter and nanocomposites with the focus on nanocarbon. He Participates in a number of international research projects and the is the Coordinator of EU FP7 project FP7-226529 BY-NANOERA.
