About/Biography

Giannakopoulou Tatiana received her Diploma in Radiophysics and Electronics including Quantum Radiophysics from the Kiev State Shevchenko University in 1985. She earned her Ph.D. degree from the same university in 1993, presenting her thesis entitled “Polarization properties of the diffusely scattered coherent electromagnetic radiation”. She carried out research on the construction and optimization of automated Stokes polarimeters, non-invasive polarimetric methods of material investigation as a scientific researcher at a Polarimetry Laboratory of Kiev University from 1985 until 1996.
Since 2000, she has been with the NCSR Demokritos. At first, she was involved in research projects concerning the electromagnetic properties of ferromagnetic, ferroelectric and conductive polymer materials for the design of microwave absorbers with a Sol-Gel Laboratory. Afterwards, she joined the Laboratory of Nanofunctional and Nanocomposite Materials, being engaged in projects ranging from metamaterials to photo-/electrocatalysts and supercapacitors fabrication and characterization. Her recent scientific interests are focused on the structural, optical and electrochemical properties of semiconductors, graphene and 2D graphene-like nanostructures and nanocomposites for environmental and energy applications. She has experience in the description/calculation of thin semiconductor films via optical dispersion models, in nanomaterial fabrication routes such as sol-gel, hydrothermal and electrochemical deposition techniques and in characterization techniques that include conventional and attenuated total reflectance FT-IR, UV-visible and RAMAN spectroscopies, atomic force microscopy (AFM) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM), cyclic voltammetry and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy. Giannakopoulou T. has more than 50 publications in peer-reviewed scholar journals with ~ 1687 citations and h-index 23 (Google Scholar, 21-04-20).
