Alexander Kildishev, Associate Professor of Electrical & Computer Engineering
Alexander Kildishev obtained his Ph.D. and M.S. in EE from the Kharkov State Polytechnic University, Ukraine (1996-1984).
At Purdue Dr. Kildishev has been leading the development of simulation strategies, methods, and software tools for applied electromagnetics and multiphysics simulations in the area of nanoplasmonic devices and optical metamaterials, MRI safety, and magnetic silencing. Before joining Purdue, he was working as the Head of Laboratory at the Magnetism Division of the National Academy of Sciences in the Ukraine. Currently, his research interests are in the simulation of nanophotonics devices, including modeling of quantum emitters on optical metasurfaces, spasers, 2D materials, and transformation optics.
Dr. Kildishev is a Technical Committee Member: SPIE Optics + Photonics - Metamaterials, Metadevices, and Metasystems, VIII - XI, in San Diego, California, United States; an advisor of the OSA Purdue University Student Chapter and the advisor of the IEEE Photonics Society Student Chapter at Purdue. Dr. Kildishev’s publications include (current h-factor: 50 Web of Science, 63 Google scholar) 6 book chapters, more than 170 publications in peer-reviewed journals, with above 18,000 citations; more than 90 invited seminar talks and conferences presentations, more than 20 issued and pending patents (10 US patents), 11 software online simulation tools (with above 3,000 users and 52,000 jobs) staged at nanoHUB.org.
Dr. Kildishev’s research directions in the area of fields and optics (FO) include computational nanophotonics and nanoscale multiphysics, metasurfaces and metamaterials, 2D and refractory plasmonics, transformation optics, nanolasers and spasers, thermophotovoltaics, and super-resolution imaging techniques and devices.
Recently, Dr. Kildishev has been recognized as a world-class researcher for his exceptional research performance, demonstrated by production of multiple highly cited papers that rank in the top 1% by citations in the cross-field category of 2018 in Web of Science (Highly Cited Researchers 2018 List). His publication list is available at Google Scholar.
