Vladimir Sivakov is a Senior Researcher of material science, and, currently, he serves as a Group Leader and Deputy Head of the Division of Semiconductor Nanostructures at the Institute of Photonic Technology, Jena, Germany. He received his B.S. and M.S. degrees in material chemistry from Vilnius University, Vilnius, Lithuania, in 1998 and 2000, respectively. And in 2004, he obtained a Ph.D. degree from Universität des Saarlandes, Saarbrücken, Germany. From 2005 to 2008, Sivakov was a Postdoctoral Associate at the Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics with Professor Ulrich Gösele's Group in Halle, Germany, where his research focused on semiconductor nanotechnology and low-dimensional physics. From 2004 to 2005, he was a Scientific Staff Member at the CVD Division at the Leibniz Institute for New Materials in Saarbrücken, Germany. His research interests include the following: thin-film technology (CVD, PECVD, LPCVD, MOCVD, ALD, EBE/MBE, and sputtering), low-dimensional nanostructures (nanowires, nanowhiskers, and quantum dots), and semiconductor nanotechnology and its applications in sensor, optic, optoelectronic, energy (third-generation photovoltaic systems), and life science. Sivakov is an author or coauthor of more than 50 scientific publications and an active Member of the Materials Research Society (MRS), the European Research Council Executive Agency (ERC-EA), the Singapore Material Research Society (S-MRS), the European Material Research Society (EMRS), the Material Research Society (MRS, USA), and the American Vacuum Society (AVS). Furthermore, he was on the Editorial Board of the Journal of Nanomaterials and Progresses in Nanotechnology and Nanomaterials.
