Yannis Raptis – Short CV:

Professor, School of Applied Mathematical and Physical Sciences of NTUA

            Yannis Raptis (born in Arachova – 1957, married, father of four children) is Professor in the Physics Department of the School of Applied Mathematical and Physical Sciences of the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA). He got his BSc (1981) from the Physics Department of the National-Kapodistrian University of Athens (NKUA), and attended, (as a scholar of the Greek Agency of Atomic Energy), post-graduate courses (1981-82) co-organized by NCSR “Demokritos” – NTUA – NKUA. Then, he was hired as a Research Associate in the National Technical University of Athens, where he did his PhD (1982-1988), entitled “Spectroscopic Study of Temperature Gradients on Semiconductor Surface, due to Laser Radiation”, under the supervision of the late Professor E. Anastassakis.

            In 1989 he was elected as a Lecturer in the General (Science) Department of NTUA. In 1993 he was elected as an Assistant Professor in the same Department, where he got a permanent position in 1994. He was elected in a position of Associate Professor (2003) and of Full Professor (2016) of the School of Applied Mathematical and Physical Sciences of NTUA. During the decade 1985-1995, he has also worked as a visiting scientist in the Universities of Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris VI), in Max-Planck Institute (Stuttgart), in the Technical University of Berlin, and in the University of Barcelona.

            His research interests are related with the spectroscopic study (Raman, Luminescence) mainly of semiconducting materials of the groups IV (Si, Ge, SiC), III-V (GaAs, InP, InSb, AlSb, GaP) και II-VI (CdTe, CdZnTe), in bulk and in low-dimensional forms and also of dielectric materials, in ambient conditions and in variable Temperature and Pressure conditions, a-Si and nc-Si under laser-annealing conditions, as well as with the thermo- and electro-chromic properties of vanadium oxides (VO2, V2O5).  The results of these investigations have been presented in more than 80 papers in peer-review journals and in more than 50 presentations in National and International Conferences and have got more than 1000 citations (h=19) [2016].

            Y. Raptis has served as a referee in more than 10 international scientific journals  (Journal of Applied Physics, Journal of Crystal Growth, Journal of Micromechanics and Microengineering, Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter, Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics, Journal of Raman Spectroscopy, Journal de Physique IV, Material Science and Engineering B - Solid State Materials for Adv. Technology, Nanotechnology, Physical Review B, Semiconductors Science and Technology, Physical Review Letters), and he has participated in the organizing committees of national and international conferences.

            He has also served in the following administrative positions at NTUA:

  • (a) Director of the Interdepartmental Program of Postgraduate Studies “Physics and Technological Applications” (2005-2006),
  • (b) Director of the Physics Department and member of the Board of Directors of the School of Appl. Math. and Phys. Sciences (2006-08),
  • (c) Director of the Interdepartmental Program of Postgraduate Studies “Microsystems and Nanotechnology” (since 2009),

while he has also participated in the Committees of Pre-graduate and Post-graduate studies of the School AMPS (as the Coordinator) and of the corresponding NTUA-Senate Committees (as a member).
