About Prof. Alex Laikhtman

Alex Laikhtman is Assoc. Professor in physics in HIT – Holon Institute of Technology (Holon, Israel). He completed all his academic studies in Technion (Haifa, Israel): B.Sc in Chemistry, M.Sc. in physical chemistry and PhD in physical chemistry of surfaces (2003). His PhD thesis subject was the interaction of low energy photons and electrons with diamond surfaces.

After completing post-doc research in Laboratoire de Photophysique Moléculaire in CNRS-Université Paris Sud (France) and then in the Space Environment Division of Soreq Nuclear Research Center (Israel), in 2007 he joined the physics department of the Faculty of Sciences in HIT as a senior academic staff member.

In HIT Alex Laikhtman is in charge of the materials analysis research laboratory equipped with STM/AFM, SEMs, and micro-Raman instruments. His academic tasks include teaching of undergraduate physics courses, the graduate “Nanomaterials” course; academic responsibility for students physics labs and physics demonstrations. From 2015 he holds a position of the Vice-Dean of the Faculty of Sciences.

His research interests are in the fields of nanoparticles characterization and processing, as well surface and advanced materials micro and nano-analysis. Alex Laikhtman published more than 50 papers in peer review journals and established a number of collaborations within the European research networks. He is continuously invited to give plenary, keynote and invited lecture at high level scientific conferences.
