Dr. Victor Klimov
Dr. Victor I. Klimov is a Fellow of Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), Director of the Center for Advanced Solar Photophysics (CASP), an Energy Frontier Research Center (EFRC) of the US Department of Energy (DOE), and Leader of the Nanotechnology and Advanced Spectroscopy Team. He is a Fellow of both APS and OSA and a recipient of a Humboldt Research Award.
Dr. Klimov is an expert in photophysics of nanocrystal quantum dots. The quantum dot program built by him at LANL has been highly productive and influential, and defined many scientific directions presently pursued by the nanoscience community. His contributions to the field of quantum dots include discoveries of quantized Auger recombination and carrier multiplication, the first demonstrations of nanocrystal quantum dot lasing and single-exciton optical gain, and pioneering research in single-dot spectroscopy, nonlinear and ultrafast optics of quantum dots, quantum dot LEDs and luminescent solar concentrators. He has published >230 peer-reviewed papers cited in the literature >36,000 times.
