Since 2004 he is with the Linköping University (LiU), Department of Physics, Chemistry and Biology (IFM). At LiU he started a new line of research on theoretical design of nanostructured carbon-based thin films with pre-defined properties and with immediate experimental verification (project and research leader: VR, SSF). His research interests expand towards 2D and van der Waals structures (WP leader in FLAG-ERA JTC project GRIFONE), layered compounds and coatings with applications in aviation. Theoretical approaches include first-principles and effective methods in computational materials science, synthesis techniques involve magnetron sputtering, MOCVD, atomic-layer deposition.
Dr. G. K. Gueorguiev completed his PhD degree in Theoretical Physics on the structural and electronic properties of carbon- and silicon-based clusters at University of Coimbra, Portugal (2003) with the exceptional mark “Cum Laude” and following a fellowship from the prestigious Portuguese Instituto Camões.
Together with his PhD degree in Theoretical Physics from University of Coimbra, Portugal, Dr. G. K. Gueorguiev holds a MSc degree in Portuguese language and literature from Department for Ibero-Roman Languages, Faculty for Classical and New Languages, Sofia University St. Kliment Ohridski, Bulgaria (1997).
Linköping - Bahia Research Network
Dr. G. K. Gueorguiev is the initiator and the leader of a research network between LiU and Federal University of Bahia (UFBA), Brazil (STINT, VR-SRL projects) operating for more than10 years, involving more than 15 team members from both institutions and generating excellent research and education results. The achievements of the research network with Brazil have been recognized by the signing of an agreement on academic, cultural, and scientific cooperation between LiU and UFBA on March 22, 2016.
