CEO of NT-MDT America. Dr. Magonov is involved in scanning probe microscopy activities since 1988 as the Head of STM/AFM laboratory (FMF, Freiburg University) and principal scientist in Digital Instruments, Veeco Instruments and Agilent Instruments. Recent developments and applications include single-pass electric modes, Hybrid mode, etc.”
Prof. Lukas Eng is Professor at the Institute of the Applied Physics of Dresden Technical University, Germany. His main scientific demands are the structural, optical (vis, IR, THz) and electrical properties of nanosystems based on ferroic materials.
Prof. Andrei Kholkin is one of the Pioneers in the field of the Piezo Response Force Microscopy (PFM). He is currently based at the University of Aveiro in Portugal.
Prof. Victor Bykov is PRESIDENT of NT-MDT Co. He founded NT-MDT in 1989. At the same time he is a Head of Department of Physical and Quantum Electronics in Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT).
Pavel Dorozkhin’s responsibilities at NT-MDT include developing unique products and applications with the integration of Atomic Force Microscopy and various optical spectroscopy techniques: AFM-Raman, SNOM & TERS. Pavel has ~20 years of experimental research experience in spectroscopy of nanomaterials and related fields”
Since 2002 he has a Researcher position at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research in Mainz (Germany). His current research is focusing on Scanning Probe Microscopy (SPM) for characterization of soft matter.
