Dr. Symeon Tsintzos
Dr. Symeon Tsintzos has received his BS degree in Physics by the Physics department of the University of Patras in 2003. In 2006 received the MsC degree in Microelectronics and Optoelectronics from the Physics department of the University of Crete, whereas he received his PhD degree in 2010 by the Materials Science and Technology department of the same University. His PhD was on the design and fabrication of electrical injected polariton LED devices. He worked as a post-doctoral research fellow at the Foundation for Research & Technology Hellas (Institute of Electronic Structure and Laser) and at the Crete Center for Quantum Complexity and Nanotechnology. He was a visitor researcher at the Nano-photonics Croup, Cavendish Laboratory, in Cambridge and at the Ioffe Physical and Technical Institute, Saint Petersburg. His scientific work extends in various fields of polariton physics and technology including electrically injected polariton lasers, design and developing of novel polariton devices (transistors, switches random number generators), on chip manipulation of polariton condensates, polariton condensate optical circuits and polariton analogue and quantum simulators. Furthermore, he involved in the design and fabrication of conventional semiconductor optoelectronic devices such as edge and vertical emitting lasers as well as on the development of quantum dot single photon emitters. In 2008, he awarded Manasaki’s scholarship for the importance of his scientific work during his PhD studies, while in 2017 awarded by the Stavros Niarchos foundation scholarship in the frame of the project “Advancing Young Researchers’ Human Capital in Cutting Edge Technologies in the Preservation of Cultural Heritage and the Tackling of Societal Challenges – ARCHERS. Currently, he is a research engineer at Eulambia Ltd. working on classical and quantum photonic cryptographic schemes and all optical processing.
