Argiris Malapanis - Research Assistant at SUNY Research Foundation
Soon to complete his doctorate at the State University of New York (SUNY) at Albany, Argiris Malapanis is writing his dissertation on the topic of Electrical and Optical Characterization of Carbon Nanotube Diodes.Mr. Malapanis completed his Bachelor of Science in Physics at the University of Athens in Greece, authoring his graduation paper on “Fabrication of sound-activated electronic switches.” He subsequently undertook a Master of Science in Physics at the University of Minnesota, completing thesis work on Hadamard Transform Spectroscopy.
Mr. Malapanis’ areas of expertise include the electrical and optical characterization of electronic devices, and principles of semiconductor fabrication and characterization. In the course of his present research, Argiris Malapanis has undertaken the fabrication of novel electronic devices, including carbon nanotube diodes. He has also developed an innovative method of taking band-gap measurements of quasi-1-D material. Experienced in spectroscopic and other techniques for optical characterization of devices, he has also conducted device analysis of CMOS structures, including I-V and C-V curves.
Experienced in simplifying complex topics, Argiris Malapanis served as a Math Teacher through the Columbia University Community Impact program from 2008 to 2009. In this role, he worked with New York City teenagers and adult students seeking to complete GED qualifications in lieu of high school diplomas.
Mr. Malapanis is fluent in English, Greek, Spanish, and French. He enjoys cooking, gardening, and photography in his free time. Argiris Malapanis is professionally affiliated with the American Chemical Society and the American Physical Society.
