Emmanuel Stratakis

Group Leader

Dr. Emmanuel Stratakis is a Researcher at the Institute of the Electronic Structure and Laser (IESL) of the Foundation for Research and Technology-Hellas (FORTH). Dr. Emmanuel Stratakis received his PhD in 2001 from the Physics Department, University of Crete. After graduating, he joined as a visiting Researcher the IESL-FORTH working on the ultrafast laser engineering of materials and as an Adjunct Professor at the Department of Materials Science and Technology, University of Crete. In the fall semesters of 2006 and 2008 he was appointed as a visiting Researcher at the Department of Mechanical Engineering of the University of California, Berkeley. In 2007 he was elected Researcher at IESL-FORTH where he is leading the “Ultrafast Laser Micro- and Nano- processing” facility, a core activity of Ultaviolet Laser Facility of FORTH, within LASERLAB Europe Research Infrastructure. Since 2015 he has been leading the European Nanoscience Facility of IESL-FORTH which is currently part of the NFFA-EUROPE EU Infrastructure. His research interests are in the fields of ultrafast laser interactions with materials for (a) biomimetic micro- and nano- structuring (b) nanomaterials synthesis, modification and functionalization for organic electronics and (c) biomaterials processing for tissue engineering. He has delivered more than 40 invited and keynote lectures and has been organizer and chair in major international scientific conferences. He has over 100 publications including 6 cover pages, in refereed scientific journals and he has received ~2700 total citations (h-index 30). Dr. Stratakis is the Greece Expert for the Horizon 2020 committee configurations on: Nanotechnologies, Advanced materials, Biotechnology, Advanced Manufacturing and Processing.
