Dr. Maria Dinescu

National Institute for Lasers Plasma Radiation Physics, Romania

Dr. Maria  Dinescu is graduated in Bucharest (1978) and worked in the field of Laser Materials Processing, Thin Film Growth. She’s  working in the areas of laser processing of thin films and heterostructure: ferroelectrics, piezoelectrics, composite materials, biocompatibles, advanced laser techniques for soft matter processing. She coordinated two international projects: Co-Director of the NATO SfP Project 97-1934, "Laser Based Clean Technologies for Smart Sensor Applications," (1999-2002). Romanian Coordinator of IST-2001-33326 "Piezoelectric sensor arrays for biomolecular interactions and gas monitoring" (PISARRO) project (2002-2004). Editor of three books and author of two chapters published in books: F. Craciun, P. Verardi, M. Dinescu, "Piezoelectric thin films: processing and properties", Handbook of Thin Film Materials, Vol. 3. Ferroelectric and Dielectric Thin Films, Ed- H.S. Nalwa, Academic Press, (2002), pp. 231-309; F. Craciun and M. Dinescu, "Pulsed Laser Deposition of Piezoelectric Thin Films" R.W.
