Dmitriy A. Dikin
Dmitriy A. Dikin received his Ph.D. degree from the Institute for Low Temperature Physics and Engineering at Kharkov, Ukraine, in 1992. From 1992 to 1993, he was a Postodoctoral Fellow at Physics Institute, University of Würsburg, Germany. Currently, he is a Research Professor at the Northwestern University. His research interests include studying of (1) nanomaterials: the complex interplay of structural, physical, and chemical properties of graphene-based nanostructures for a development of novel electronic and composite materials, mechanical properties of nanotubes, nanowires, and nanocomposites; (2) mesoscopic superconductivity: interfacial phenomena, Andreev-reflection spectroscopy, thermal transport, and nonequilibrium states; (3) instrumentation development for integrated study of nanomaterials with nano- and subnano resolution in air, vacuum and variable temperatures, and new tools and methods for biomedical research. Dikin is a coauthor of 63 refereed journal articles, two book chapters, and 2 patents in the fields of physics, mechanics, and material science.
