Ioannis Raptis, received his BS degree in Physics (1989) and his Ph.D. (Supervisor Dr. N. Glezos) in nanopatterning (1996) both from the Physics Department from University of Athens. The software part of his thesis on electron beam lithography simulation became a commercial product launched into the market by Sigma-C GmbH, Germany. Since 2003, he works at NCSR-Demokritos as researcher, and since 2013 as a Director of Research. His current research interests are on the design and implementation of technologies and electronic/photonic devices with critical dimension in the micro/nano-scale for a broad-range of bio/chemical sensing applications. He is/was Key Researcher and Coordinator of several EU (FP6, FP7, H2020) and national funded research projects in those areas with accumulated funding for NCSR ‘Demokritos >2.0M€. He is author of more than 170 publications in peer-reviewed international journals, and holder of 4 patents. In 2009, he co-founded ThetaMetrisis SA, the first spin-off company from the Institute of Microelectronics NCSR ‘Demokritos’, that design and manufacture tools for the fast, accurate and non-destructive characterization of coatings in the nano and micro scale, that are extensively used in academia and industry worldwide.
