Dr. Peter K Petrov is Principal Scientist and the Head of the Thin Film Technology Laboratory, at the Department of Materials, Imperial College London. He holds MSc (Physics and Engineering) and PhD (Technical Sciences) from St Petersburg State Electrotechnical University (LETI), St Petersburg, Russia. Dr. Petrov is internationally known for his research into functional oxide thin films, and microwave tuneable devices. He has more than 20 years’ experience in development of thin films multilayer structures and devices, with more than 70 high impact factor scientific papers, and five patent applications, which are now granted patents (two patents were transferred to Ericsson AB). His most recent achievements, include: development of a method for the fabrication of ferroelectrics based multilayers with atomically sharp interfaces; experimental confirmation of the negative capacitance in ferroelectrics based multilayers at room temperature; development of a method for nanolithography and fabrication of light manipulating devices for energy harvesting and bio sensing. Dr Petrov leads an active research group of 2 PDRAs, 5 PhD students and 6 MSc students.
