Mikhail Skvortsov

Mikhail graduated with a Master degree from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology in 1995. His further scientific career has been closely related to the Landau Institute for Theoretical Physics, where he started as a graduate student (PhD, 1998), received the Doctor of Science (Habilitation) degree in 2008, and is working presently as a senior research scientist (part-time since May 2014).

His scientific interests lie in the field of contemporary low-temperature condensed matter physics, with particular emphasis on quantum-coherent phenomena in complex systems in the presence of disorder, interaction and fluctuations.  His recent research activity is related with the physics of strongly disordered superconductors and chiral metals, nonequilibrium superconductivity, electron transport in quantum wires, and Anderson localization of Majorana fermions.

 Graphene and graphene-like materials

The course will review recent developments in the physics of graphene, a two-dimensional crystal of carbon atoms, which is believed to have tremendous potential in electronics. It will provide a comprehensive self-contained theory of chiral electrons in graphene, crucial for understanding and predicting the properties of graphene-based nanomaterials.
