Professor Vladimir Dyakonov holds the Chair of Experimental Physics (Energy research) on the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy of Julius-Maximilian University of Würzburg, Germany since 2004 and he is the Scientific Director of the Bavarian Centre of Applied Energy Research (ZAE Bayern) since 2005. He studied physics at the University of St. Petersburg and received his doctorate at the A. F. Ioffe Physico-Technical Institute in 1996. Since 1990, he has been a visiting researcher at the universities of Bayreuth (Germany), Antwerp (Belgium) and Linz (Austria). He finished his habilitation in experimental physics at the University of Oldenburg (Germany) in 2001. In 2007-2009 he was the Vice-dean of the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy, in 2010-2011 the managing director of Institute of Physics and in 2013-2015 he was the Dean of the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Würzburg. Dyakonov’s main research interests are in the fields of thin-film photovoltaics, semiconductor spectroscopy and functional energy materials, in general.
Professor Dyakonov is a member of several committees including the Board of Directors of German Renewable Energy Research Association (FVEE), the Advisory Board of Bavarian Energy Technology Cluster and the Board of Trustees at German Plastics Centre (SKZ).
