Prof. V. V. Afanasiev has received PhD degree in solid state physics from the Leningrad State University (USSR) in 1985 and since then occupied research and education positions in USSR (Russia), the Netherlands (Technical University of Delft), Germany (University of Erlangen-Nurnberg) and Belgium (University of Leuven). Since 01.10.2004 he is professor at the Department of Physics and Astronomy of KU Leuven within the Laboratory of Semiconductor Physics. One of the major research activities of the Prof. Afanas’ev’s group consists in development of internal photoemission (IPE) spectroscopy techniques as the unique group of methods for interface characterization. The successes in experimental realization of the IPE spectroscopy allowed the team to become one of the world leaders in this field. Thanks to the well established international collaboration, the KU Leuven group succeeded to analyze interface band structure of a wide spectrum of semiconductor, metal, and insulating materials thus ensuring the representative character of the results and the conclusions drawn from the experiments. He published more than 400 papers in peer-reviewed journals, 12 book chapters, and the monographic book: “Internal Photoemission Spectroscopy” (1st edition -2008, 2nd edition - 2014). Prof. Afanasiev is member of steering/technical/managing committees of several international conferences (Insulating Films on Semiconductors, Intl. Conference on Defects in Semiconductors, IEEE Semiconductor Interface Specialists Conference…).
