Plasma Nanoscience, Etching & Nanofabrication, Advanced material characterization, Mass Spectroscopy, Proteomics


Dr A. Smyrnakis has a Diploma in Applied Physics and a M.Sc. in Microsystems and Nanodevices from National Technical University of Athens (NTUA). He holds a Ph.D. from the School of Chemical Engineering (NTUA) that held in collaboration with the Plasma Nanofabrication Laboratory of the Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, NCSR Demokritos. His Ph.D. thesis was about plasma self-assembly and fabrication of plasma-etched silicon nanowires for energy application. He is currently working as postdoctoral researcher in collaboration with Fasmatech SA under the Industrial Research Fellowship Program at NCSR Demokritos. His research interests focus on plasma physics & nanoscience, process development for plasma etching and nanostructuring of materials, plasma diagnostics, advanced materials characterization, mass spectroscopy and ion optics for several applications including energy, life sciences and proteomics.
