About the course
Dr.Alexi Gerasimov has been working in materials
research for about 60 years, Prof. Alexi Gerasimov started his career as
Researcher and then became Chair and Head of Department and Scientific-Research
Laboratory of Semiconductor Microelectronics at the TSU and was head of
Laboratory at the Scientific Institute of Microelectronics.
Alexi Gerasimov worked not only in academia, but also in
microelectronic industry of the former Soviet Union. He was Deputy
Director & Chief Engineer of the Industrial-Scientific Association
In recent years, he was Scientific Director of the Gerasimov
Research Laboratory, the Representative office in Georgia of the Liquid
Light Inc. (Seattle, USA).
Prof. Alexi Gerasimov has developed his expertise in the fields of
Solid State Physics, Semiconductors, Microelectronics, Nanophysics, and
Nanotechnology. He has (co)authored more than 240 publications, among
them 2 monographs, obtained up to 10 invention patents. In 1998, the
International Committee on Scientific Discovers recognized his work
“Exoelectronic emission of solids” as a scientific discovery.
He is Member of the Academy of Natural Sciences of Georgia and the
Academy of Engineering of Georgia, and Laureate of the Ilia Vekua Award
of the Georgian National Academy of Science
This comprehensive course covers both the fundamental and applied aspects of the nanomaterials and presents for the first time a new theory to describe the properties of nano materials.
Nanoparticles and nanomaterials, in spite of their
very small dimensions, unlike atoms and small molecules, are substances that
have collective properties (heat capacity, thermal conductivity, electrical
conductivity, hardness, etc.). The study of these properties of matter,
regardless of the aggregate state, initially relied on thermodynamics, which
considered matter as a continuous substance and, despite some achievements,
could not explain the emerging new phenomenon.Through this workshop participants will acquire a sound knowledge properties and observed phenomenon in nanomaterials. The course will cover Molecular-Kinetic Theory (MKT) and discuses its shortcoming in
application for nano materials and present a New Theory: Potential
Theory of substances (EPTS) and application for nano materials.
Short course notes are distributed on DVD. Participants should bring their laptops to get access to the course material.
