George Kourmoulakis is a PhD candidate at the Department of Materials Science at the University of Crete, Greece. His current research interests include two Dimensional Materials (2D), μ-Photoluminescence Spectroscopy (μ-PL), Raman Spectroscopy, Pattern effects on the optoelectronic features of 2D materials and Heterostructure fabrication and characterization. Studying options that allow to control and tune the optical and electronic characteristics of 2D materials can potentially lead to developing devices with very specific capabilities. Another research field of his interest is studying control and enhance valley polarization in Transition Metal Dichalcogenides.
He obtained his M.Sc. in master program “Optoelectronics and Nanotechnology” in Physics from University of Crete, Greece in 2018.
In 2015, he joined the “Ultrafast Laser Micro and Nano Processing” Group of the IESL, FORTH. His master thesis subject was: “Optical and Electronic properties of few layers GeSe”.
He received his Bachelor degree in Physics from University of Crete, Greece in 2015.
