Chair: Dr. Alexey Bolshakov, St-Petersburg National Research Academic University

Low dimensional nanostructures such as nanowires and nanotubes provide new possibilities for the development of novel devices and materials due to their unique properties. The latter includes the ability to synthesize semiconductor nanowires on mismatched substrates, e.g. arsenides and nitrides on silicon. Novel approaches allow encapsulation of the nanowires in a polymer matrix for the development of flexible semiconductor devices. Carbon nanotubes, metal nanowires and other materials based on 1D structures can be used as conductive transparent electrodes for novel optoelectronic devices and provide other intriguing possibilities.

This session is devoted to the latest advances in synthesis, study and application of different perspectives materials based on 1D and quasi 1D structures.

Albert Nasibulin


Dr. Sc. Albert G. Nasibulin is a Professor at Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology and an Adjunct Professor at the Department of Applied Physics of Aalto University School of Science. He held a post of the Academy Research Fellow in Academy of Finland from 2006 to 2011. Since 2018 he is a Professor of the Russian Academy of Sciences. He got his PhD in Physical Chemistry (1996) at Kemerovo State University (Russia) and Doctor of Science (Habilitation, 2011) at Saint-Petersburg Technical State University (Russia). He has specialized in the aerosol synthesis of nanomaterials (nanoparticles, carbon nanotubes and tetrapods), investigation of their growth mechanism and their applications. At the moment his main research is devoted to transparent, flexible, stretchable and conductive single-walled CNT films. He has a successful background in an academic research with more than 240 peer-reviewed scientific publications and 31 patents. He is a co-founder of three companies: Canatu Ltd. (spin-off from Helsinki University of Technology, Finland) and CryptoChemistry and Novaprint (spin-offs from Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology, Moscow, Russia).

Vincent Consonni

Chargé de Recherche CNRS

Vincent Consonni received his PhD in Materials Science and Engineering in 2008 from Grenoble INP. He then spent a post-doctoral stay in Paul-Drude-Institut in Berlin, in which he investigated the formation mechanisms of GaN nanowires by molecular beam epitaxy. He subsequently spent a post-doctoral stay in Laboratoire des Technologies de la Microélectronique in Université Grenoble Alpes, in which he investigated the formation mechanisms of ZnO nanowires by chemical deposition techniques. He joined CNRS as a research scientist in Laboratoire des Matériaux et du Génie Physique in Université Grenoble Alpes in 2011. His current research focuses on the physical-chemistry of semiconducting micro- and nano-structures with a special emphasis on their chemical synthesis. He is specifically working on ZnO nanowires and their related heterostructures for optoelectronic and piezoelectric devices.
