Prof. Kioseoglou George
University Faculty Member

George Kioseoglou is an Associate Professor at the Department of Materials Science and Technology of the University of Crete and an affiliated member of IESL/FORTH. He obtained his PhD in Physics from the State University of New York at Buffalo in 1999 in the area of spectroscopic studies of electronic states in semiconductor heterostructures. After a postdoctoral position at Brookhaven National Laboratory, he joined the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) in Washington DC where he continued his work on efficient electrical spin injection and detection in semiconductors. From 2004 to 2007 he was a National Research Council (NRC) Fellow with the materials physics branch at NRL. In 2007 he joined the Department of Materials Science and served as its Director of Graduate Studies in the period of 2010-2015. His main research interests are in the physics and applications of semiconductor nanostructures, Spintronics and Valleytronics, and in the electronic and optical properties of 2D materials. Prof. Kioseoglou has shared 3 times the NRL Alan Berman research publication award for his work on spin injection in GaAs and Si spin-LEDs. He has co-authored over 85 scientific publications in refereed journals (with 4 very highly cited papers in Spintronics), more than 4900 total citations and an h-index of 32, and more than 250 contributed conference presentations (March-2019). He gave more than 30 invited talks in international conferences and written one book chapter in Handbook of Spintronics.
