Dr Georgios Gkantzounis
Georgios Gkantzounis joined the University of Surrey in 2015 as a Research Fellow working on hyperuniform structures. He graduated from the University of Athens, Greece, with a BSc in Physics (2002) with excellence, an MSc in Materials Physics (2004) and a PhD in Photonic Structures (2008) from the University of Athens. Prior to joining the Physics Department at Surrey he worked as a Research Fellow in NCSR Demokritos, Athens Greece (2009-2011) on acousto-optic interactions and as a Research Fellow in California Institute of Technology (2011-2012) on nonlinear elastic dynamics.
Current activities are focused on the physics and applications of non-crystallographic band gap materials both for photon and phonon control, lasing in quasi-random (hyperuniform) structures, phononic structures and acousto-optic interactions.
