Dr. Anna Kosinova

Degree: Ph.D. student

  • Date: 2007 – 2010
  • Institute: Institute for Single Crystals NASU, Kharkov, Ukraine
  • Area of Specialization: During my PhD studies I synthesized the composite materials based on KDP crystals with incorporated nanoparticles and organic molecules, to be used as efficient nonlinear optical media. The nucleation, growth, structure and optical properties of KDP crystals doped with TiOnanoparticles and organic impurities were studied.

Title:  Research Assistant

  • Date: 2010 – 2014
  • Institute:Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Technion, Haifa, Israel
  • Field of activity: Crystal growth from solutions; development of methods for obtaining composite systems, namely KDP:TiО2, KDP:Al2O3, KDP:ZrО2crystals, with ordered distribution of the nanoparticles in the matrix.

Title: Postdoctoral Fellow

  • Date: 2014 – date
  • Institute: Institute for Single Crystals NASU, Kharkov, Ukraine
  • Current research interest: solid-state dewetting of thin Au and Fe-Au films on sapphire; microstructure and morphology evolution of porous gold nanoparticles and thin films.
