Sergei Rouvimov is a senior materials scientist with over 25 years of scientific, research and engineering experience in semiconductor technology, nano-science and materials characterization. Dr. Rouvimov has held scientific and engineering positions at leading research centers and institutions, including the Technology Center, SUMCO USA (1999-2007), Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (1995-1999), the Institute of Semiconductor Physics, Germany (1994), the Max-Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics, Germany (1993-1994,1995), and the Ioffe Physical-Technical Institute, Russia (1980-1992).
Dr. Rouvimov holds BS (Physics) and MS (Semiconductor Physics) degrees from St. Petersburg State University (Russia) and a PhD (Physics/Materials Science) degree from A.F. Ioffe Physical-Technical Institute, Russian Academy of Sciences. Since 1990, Dr. Rouvimov has worked on nano-technology projects with the Zh. Alferov (2000 Nobel Prize Laureate) research group. Dr. Rouvimov pioneered high resolution electron microscopy characterization of pyramidal InGaAs quantum dots (see hhtp//www.esi.topics.com/quantumdots/authors/b1a.html) with over 1500 citations for papers on quantum dots. This research provided a significant contribution to the realization of low threshold QD injection lasers in collaboration between Ioffe Institute, TU Berlin, and Max-Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics. He has authored and co-authored over 70 journal articals, holds a patent (Russia), has given over invited 50 talks, and was a session chair on the international scientific conference SIMX-98.
Currently, Dr. Rouvimov is working in the Nano-crystallography group at PSU (http://web.pdx.edu/~sonderp/nanogroup). His research interests include nano-technology and nano-metrology, self-organized quantum and molecular structures for advanced micro- and optoelectronics applications, materials synthesis and characterization with emphasis on structure- properties relationship for novel materials, interfaces and devices, computational materials science, failure analysis, defect theory, and stress/strain engineering of semiconductor hetero-structures.
