Spiros Gardelis is Associate Professor at the Physics Department of National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. He received his BSc in Physics from the University of Athens in 1988, his MSc and PhD from the University of Manchester in 1989 and 1993, respectively. During 1993-1995 he worked as Research Associate at the same Institution. Then he moved to the University of Warwick and worked as Research Fellow during 1996. In 1997 he joined Cavendish Laboratory at the University of Cambridge where he worked as Research Associate until 2000. Then, he worked as Research Associate at the Institute of Electronic Structure and Laser (IESL) of the Foundation for Research and Technology-Hellas (FORTH) in Heraklion, Crete and concurrently taught as Visiting Associate Professor at the Materials Science Department of the University of Crete until 2004. In 2005 he joined INN formerly Institute of Microelectronics at NCSR “D” as Researcher and in 2011 he was promoted to Senior Researcher. In May 2015, he joined the University of Athens. He has more than 75 publications in international journals and conference proceedings. His current research interests are in the field of low-dimensional semiconductors and especially silicon nanostructures for nanoelectronics, photonics and solar cell applications. He has expertise in growth, electrical and optical measurements of silicon nanostructures. He has worked in the field of spintronics, specifically on the problem of spin injection in semiconductors. He has also worked on transport in low-dimensional semiconductots at cryogenic temperatures. He has gained expertise in the synthesis of complex magnetic metals and their deposition as stoichiometric thin films on semiconductors by pulsed laser deposition for spintronics applications.
