Research Associate Professor
Serhii Shafraniuk has completed his Ph.D at the age of 26 years from Kiev State University and postdoctoral studies from Academy of Sciences of Ukraine. Among his interests were non-equilibrium properties of inhomogeneous superconductors, transport phenomena in layered superconductors, electromagnetic properties of quantum wells, and Josephson junction qubits. Before coming to USA, Serhii had been working in various leading research centers in Germany, the Netherlands, and Japan (1990-2002). At present, Serhii is the Research Associate Professor at the Physics and Astronomy Department, Northwestern University, a premier educational and research institution. At Northwestern (2002-present) he served as a PI in research projects related to electromagnetic properties of carbon nanotube and graphene field effect transistors, thermoelectric transport in carbon nanotube and graphene multi-barrier devices, and qubits. He has received numerous prestigious awards and published more than 100 papers in reputed journals and served as an organizer of various International Conferences.
Dr. Shafraniuk's research is oriented around nano-physics, particularly the electromagnetic and far-infrared properties of graphene and carbon nanotube junctions.
