Igor Altfeder

Igor Altfeder received PhD in physics from Institute for Physical Problems of Russian Academy of Sciences. Since 1996 till 2000 he worked in the Rowland Institute for Science ( Cambridge, MA) as a postdoctoral fellow. His specialization is surface science and scanning probe surface microscopy. In 2001 he became a research associate at Harvard University, where he continued experimental study of low-dimensional materials. In 2004 Igor joined NanoTech at UTDallas as research scientist. Here, Igor studies the properties of carbon nanostructures using scanning probes.
