Mile Ivanda is a Senior Scientist at Rudjer Boskovic Institute since 2005. He studied at the University of Zagreb. He received the B.S. and Ph.D. degrees in physics in 1986 and 1992. He gained three months EU fellowship award (1993) and Alexander von Humboldt postdoctoral fellowship award at the University of Wuerzburg, Germany (1994-1995). He spent one year as a Visiting Scientist at the University of Trento, Italy (2000). Also, he gained two months NATO research award from the "Nello Carrara" Institute of Applied Physics (2005). His main research fields are structure, electronic and vibrational properties of nanostructural materials as well as implementation and development of the LPCVD technology for deposition of thin films. His long-term cooperation with CNR-IFN in Trento resulted in 149 000 euros value project Novel silicon-based materials for optoelectronics (2010–2013). He has been the Principal Investigator of the projects: Structure and Optical Properties of Nanocrystalline Silicon and Cadmium Sulfide-Selenide for Optoelectronics, NATO-CNR project (2005), Implementation and Development of the LPCVD Process in the Program of the Technological Development of Croatia, financed by the Ministry of Science and Technology of Croatia (2002–2004); Research on Disordered Materials; Nano-Optical Layers, Croatian-Slovenian Bilateral project (2003–2005); Study by Raman and Optical Techniques of Nanostructures Synthesized by Ion Bombardment, Italian project (2000–2002); Structure and Metastable States of a-Si:H and a-SiC:H, AvH project (1994–1996). He has been guiding for 10 Diploma, 1 Masters science, and 5 Doctoral degree theses. He was a Member of International Steering Committee on 10 conferences as well as ESF project "ORGANOSOLAR" (2007–2013). Ivanda was Invited Speaker on 16 international conferences and international institutes. He published 160 papers (cited 1150 times; H-index 19), among 130 are international refereed of which 80 are in CC-SCI journals.
