Short Bio

Nikolaos Spiliopoulos was born in Patras, Greece in 1969. He received the B.Sci. in Physics from the University of Patras, Greece in 1991. He joined Plasma Technology Lab. of the Chemical Engineering Department (University of Patras) in 1991 as a PhD student. He received his PhD degree in Chemical Engineering in 1997 entitled “Power Consumption Study in Gaseous Glow Discharges and Application to Amorphous Hydrogenated Silicon Deposition”. In 2000 he joined the Polymer Physics Lab. of the Department of Physics as a PostDoc fellow and a regular member of the group. He is an author and co-author of 20 publications in international scientific journals and more than 30 announcements in international and national conferences, while he has also participated in several national and European scientific projects related to thin film solar cells, surface and interface science, polymer physics. Since January 2012 serves as Lecturer in the Department of Physics – University of Patras in the position entitled “Material Physics-Experimental”. His main research interests are focused on the Polymer Physics, Surface and Interface Physics, Nanomaterials.
