Dmitriy A. Dikin

Temple University, USA

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.
