Nikolaos Semaltianos received the B.S. degree in physics from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTh), Greece, in 1988. Then he obtained the Ph.D. degree in condensed matter physics from the University of Notre Dame, South Bend, IN, USA, in 1994, working on metastable defects which are responsible for persistent photoconductivity in II-VI-based semiconducting compounds and alloys. He worked as a Researcher at the University of Liverpool, UK, in laser materials processing and nanoparticles generation by laser ablation of bulk target materials in liquids as well as at the University of Plymouth, Queen Mary University of London, and Imperial College and in CNRS and Thales R&T in France. His areas of expertise include laser materials processing, laser ablation, laser surface texturing, laser cutting, laser drilling, nanoparticles generation by laser ablation, magnetic and metal thin films by sputtering, thermal and e-beam evaporation, polymer thin films by spin coating and Langmuir-Blodgett deposition, organic electronics, polymer-nanoparticle composites, chemical vapor deposition, III-V-based semiconductor heterostructures grown by molecular beam epitaxy, quantum well-laser sources, twin photon sources, II-VI-based semiconductors, and defects and complexes in bulk silicon.
