Biography

Dr. Yuri A. Barnakov received MS from the St. Petersburg State Technical University (Leningrad Institute of Technology) and Ph.D. in Inorganic Chemistry from Ioffe Physico-Technical Institute of Russian Academy of Sciences (St. Petersburg State University). He served as a visiting research scientist / lecturer / professor at the Center for Interdisciplinary Research, Tohoku University, Japan. Dr. Barnakov worked as Research Scientist at Advanced Institute for Materials Research, University of New Orleans. Dr. Barnakov is involved in several review processes, including internationally reputed journals and proposals. His major research interests are related to (i) the synthesis, characterization of nanostructured materials (nanoparticles, quantum dots, nanorods, nanowires) and nanocomposites (magneto-optical, transparent ceramics, optical metamaterials), and studies their functional properties and (ii) Scanning probe microscope (AFM, NSOM). At present he works on studies of optical metamaterials with hyperbolic relationship, near-field mapping of distribution of electric and magnetic components of electromagnetic radiation, and studies of surface and interface in vicinity of metamaterials. Dr. Barnakov joined Norfolk State in 2005 as Research Associate Professor.

Research

  • Synthesis and characterization of three-dimensional, bulk hyperbolic metamaterials.
