Supporting Inspiring Science and Technology

Universal Journal of Lasers, Optics, Photonics & Sensors

  • I would like to thank you first for this nice invitation at the conference LOPS 2021. The conference was very interesting, well organized and very inspiring for interaction and collaborations. I was impressed by the organization I found very efficient and flexible. The conference gave me the opportunity to present my research to a global audience creating an excellent synergy. Experience we have to do it again every year for sure! Looking forward to see you next year!

Editor Biography

Ghenadii Korotcenkov

Moldova State University, Moldova


Ghenadii Korotcenkov earned his PhD in material sciences from the Technical University of Moldova, Chisinau, Moldova in 1976 and his doctor of science degree (doctor habilitate) in physics from the Academy of Science of Moldova in 1990. He has more than 45 years of experience as a scientific researcher. For a long time, he has been the leader of the gas sensor group and manager of various national and international scientific and engineering projects carried out in the Laboratory of Micro- and Optoelectronics, Technical University of Moldova and supported from international foundations and programs such as the CRDF, the MRDA, the ICTP, the INTAS, the INCO-COPERNICUS, the COST, and the NATO. From 2007 to 2008, he was an invited scientist in Korean Institute of Energy Research, Daejeon, South Korea. Then, until the end of 2017 Dr. G. Korotcenkov was a research professor at the School of Materials Science and Engineering at Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology, Gwangju, South Korea. Currently Dr. G. Korotcenkov is the chief scientific researcher (research professor) at the Department of Physics and Engineering at the Moldova State University, Chisinau, the Rep. of Moldova.

Dr. G. Korotcenkov is either the author or editor of 39 books, including the 11-volume Chemical Sensors series published by the Momentum Press (USA), 15-volume Chemical Sensors series published by Harbin Institute of Technology Press (China), 3-volume Porous Silicon: From Formation to Application published by CRC Press (USA), 2-volume Handbook of Gas Sensor Materials published by Springer (USA), and 3-volume Handbook of Humidity Measurements published by CRC Press (USA). In addition, at present, Dr. G. Korotcenkov is a series’ editor of Metal Oxides series, which is being published by Elsevier. Starting from 2017, already 16 volumes have been published within the framework of that series.

Dr. G. Korotcenkov is the author and coauthor of more than 600 scientific publications, including 30 review papers, 38 book chapters, and more than 200 articles published in peer-reviewed scientific journals (h-factor = 42 [Scopus] and h-factor = 51 [Google Scholar citation]).
In the majority of publications, he is the first author. Besides, Dr. G. Korotchenkov is a holder of 17 patents. He has presented more than 250 reports at national and international conferences, including 17 invited talks. Dr. G. Korotcenkov was co-organizer of more than 10 international scientific conferences.

Research activities of Dr. G. Korotcenkov are honored by the Prize of the Academy of Sciences of Moldova (2019), an Award of the Supreme Council of Science and Advanced Technology of the Republic of Moldova (2004); Prize of the Presidents of the Ukrainian, Belarus, and Moldovan Academies of Sciences (2003); and National Youth Prize of the Republic of Moldova in the field of science and technology (1980), among others. Dr. G. Korotcenkov also received a fellowship from the International Research Exchange Board (IREX, United States, 1998), Brain Korea 21 Program (2008–2012), and Brainpool Program (Korea, 2007-2008 and 2015–2017).

Present scientific interests starting from 1995 include:

  • material science, focusing on the metal oxide film deposition and characterization,
  • surface science, focusing on the study of the nature of gas sensing effects
  • design of thin film gas sensors and thermoelectric convertors.
