KYRIAKOS FILINTOGLOU received his Diploma in Physics from the Physics Department of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTh) in 2009 and he completed in 2011 the postgraduate course of Physics of Materials in the same department. Subsequently, he was undertaken his PhD studies entitled “Spectroscopic studies of nanostructures with applications in opto- and microelectronics”, which he successfully completed in 2016. He held a postdoctoral fellow position at the institute of chemical engineering sciences – FORTH (January 2019 – January 2020). He is a postdoctoral fellow at the department of physics of the Aristotle University since February of 2020. His research interest focused in the study of carbon, and semiconducting nanostructures (Transition Metal Dichalcogenides, nitrides semiconductors), mainly by optical techniques both at ambient and extreme conditions (high pressure, low/high temperature, strain, electrochemical doping). Moreover, K. Filintoglou actively participated in four research programs, dealing with graphene, C60 fullerides and semiconducting nitride nanostructures.
