Professor Alexander Grishin is presently a Professor of Condensed Matter Physics, Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Sweden. He has published over 400 papers and reviews on processing technology and physics of thin films; new experimental instruments and devices; advanced materials characterization; bubble, ferroelectric, and resistance switching (memristor-type) non-volatile memories; theory of electron transport, surface acoustic, electromagnetic and spin waves in metals, electron drag of dislocations, magnetic vortices in superconductors, physics of ferromagnetic and ferroelectrics. He has filed 2 WO, 38 USSR, 1 Swedish, 3 US and 1 Canadian patents on magneto-optical methods and instruments for magnetic domain and Bloch line visualization; magnetic field sensors; methods of magnetic measurements (coercive force, magnetostriction constant, etc.); bubble-memory and SAW devices; single flux superconducting memories including multiple-valued logic; new high-Tc superconductors and method of their processing; materials and methods of RFID. From 1989 to 1996 Prof. Grishin headed the Department of Quantum Crystals in Donetsk Physico-Technical Institute of Ukrainian Academy of Sciences. This department (with a staff was over 50 PhDs, engineers and technicians) has provided the complex R&D program "Bubble Memory" with Microelectronics Industry in former Soviet Union. He has over 35 years of experience in undergraduate and postgraduate teaching acquired in Ukraine: Kharkov State University, Kharkov Institute of Radio-Physics and Electronics, and Donetsk State University; Royal Institute of Technology (Sweden), and Kumamoto University (Japan). From 1989 to 1993, he founded and led an R&D spin-off company in Ukraine and in Sweden, since 2001.
