  • Biography

    Victor Zhirnov received the M.S. in applied physics from the Ural Polytechnic Institute, Ekaterinburg, Russia, and the Ph.D. in solid state electronics from the Institute of Physics and Technology, Moscow, in 1989 and 1992, respectively. From 1992 to 1998 he was a senior scientist at the Institute of Crystallography of Russian Academy of Science in Moscow.

    Currently he is research associate professor at North Carolina State University. Victor Zhirnov also has an appointment as research scientists at the Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC). His responsibilities at the SRC include assessments of emerging nanoelectronic devices.

    Victor Zhirnov's research interests include properties of materials properties at nanoscale, deterministic doping of semiconductor nanostructures, tunneling phenomena, vacuum microelectronics and nanoelectronics. He has authored and co-authored over 80 technical papers and contributions to books. He has served as a consultant to a number of government, industrial, and academic institutions.

    Springer Prize, and the Arthur K. Doolittle Award.
