Jorge M. Maia0000-0002-9314-1763
Jorge M. Maia received a Ph.D. degree in technological physics in 2005, from the University of Coimbra, Portugal, with a thesis on the scientific domain of radiation detectors. From 1998 to 2005, he was a Lecturer of physics at the Physics Department, University of Beira-Interior, Covilhã, Portugal. From 2002 to 2003, he was a Visiting Ph.D. degree Student (Advisor: Professor Amos Breskin) at the Department of Particle Physics, Weizmann Institute of Science. From 2005 to 2010, he was a Researcher at the Instrumentation Center, Department of Physics, University of Coimbra, Portugal. Since 2005, he became an Assistant Professor of physics at the Physics Department, University of Beira-Interior. Since 2010, he joined the LIP-Laboratório de Instrumentação e Física Experimental de Partículas, Coimbra, Portugal, as a Researcher. His areas of expertise are radiation detectors and nuclear instrumentation, specifically micropattern gas detectors: GEMs, THGEMs, and MHSPs; Compound semiconductors detectors: CdZnTe and CdTe; UV Photo-detectors. Currently, his research interests include the development of X- and gamma-rays polarimeters for application in astrophysics, mainly the experimental characterization and numeric simulations, and the study of compound semiconductor detectors. His research activities include a regular participation on international experiments at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF), Grenoble, France. Maia is the author/coauthor of more than 40 papers published in international journals (IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science, Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research A, Journal of Instrumentation, etc.) and conference proceedings. Additionally, he acts as a regular Referee for the international scientific journal IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science and sporadically for others international journals.
