2019 Chuck Fiori Award
Brookhaven National Laboratory
Dmitri N. Zakharov received his M.S. degree in Solid State Physics from Moscow State Engineering Physical Institute, Department of Theoretical and Experimental Physics in 1995, his Ph.D. in Solid State Physics from the Institute of Crystallography of the Russian Academy of Sciences in 2001, and postdoctoral trainings at Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. After spending 6 years as a Staff Scientist at Birck Nanotechnology Center at Purdue University, Dr. Zakharov joined the Center for Functional Nanomaterials at Brookhaven National Laboratory in 2012 in a Staff Scientist role.
Dr. Zakharov’s research interests include environmental scanning/transmission electron microscopy (ETEM) technique; automated low dose image acquisition of electron beam sensitive materials; Machine Learning algorithms and Big Data analysis for real-time image streams processing to extract quantitative information; operando experimental setup utilizing ETEM and the National Synchrotron Light Source II as two complimentary techniques; carbon nanotube nucleation, growth, termination and chirality control; 2D and III-Nitride materials and devices. Dr. Zakharov has over 150 journal and conference publications, which have been cited more then 3,200 times (h-index 33), and he has presented over 30 invited talks in the US and abroad. Dmitri was recipient of 2014 Spotlight Award by Brookhaven National Laboratory and Mikhail Teplov Scholarship in 2000. He also served as Graduate Faculty at the School of Materials Engineering at Purdue University.
