Polychronis Tsipas studied physics and obtained his M.Sc. in Microsystems and Nanodevices from the National Technical University of Athens (Greece) in 2005 and his Ph.D. from the National Technical University of Athens in collaboration with the Institute of Material Science of NCSR Demokritos (Greece) in 2009 on the growth and characterization of high-k dielectric thin films on Ge. From 2011 to 2012, he worked as a Post-Doctoral Researcher in the Institute of Microelectronics of NCSR Demokritos on plasma etching and characterization of Si, SiO2 and Si3N4 microstructures and nanostructures for microelectronic and optoelectronic applications. The period 2012-2017 he worked at the MBE laboratory of NCSR Demokritos under the SMARTGATE (Smart Gates for the Green Transistor) EU project on search for novel 2D materials like graphene, silicene, germanene, transition metal dichalcogenides and topological insulators for low-power electronic applications. The period 2017-2019, he worked under the Greek State Scholarships Foundation (IKY) program for the strengthening of post-doctoral research titled as "Information storage in topological (3D Dirac and Weyl) semimetals for applications in non-volatile memories". Since 2019, he works for the SKYTOP (Skyrmion-Topological insulator and Weyl semimetal technology) EU project on the search for novel 2D ferromagnets and topological materials (topological insulators and Weyl semimetals) for skyrmionic and spintronic applications. He has (co)authored more than 40 scientific publications in international peer-reviewed journals and he has received >1800 citations for his work (h-index: 21).
