About the Author

Victor E. Borisenko graduated in 1973 from the Belarusian State University of Informatics and Radioelectronics (BSUIR) as an engineer in semiconductor electronics. He received his first doctorate in physics and mathematics in 1980, his second one in 1988. Since 1990, he has held positions as a professor in many universities worldwide, including the University of Salford in England, the University of Wuppertal in Germany and the University of Electro-Communications in Tokyo, Japan. He now holds a chair as professor and vice-rector of BSUIR and acts as supervisor of the Interuniversity Center of Nanoelectronics and Novel Materials. Since 1995, Professor Borisenko organizes the international conference on physics, chemistry and applications of nanostructures 'Nanomeeting?.
His research team focuses on fundamental electronic and optical properties of semiconducting silicides and low dimensional silicon based nanostructures, carrier transport in semiconductor/dielectric multiquantum wells and DNA, design of novel nanoelectronics and nanophotonic devices, quantum computing.

Stefano Ossicini is Full Professor of General Physics at the Faculty of Engineering (Reggio Emilia) of the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia (Italy) and Director of the PhD School in "Physical and NanoSciences" of the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia. He also work a researcher within the CNR-National Institute for the Physics of Matter (INFM) at the INFM National Center S3 "nanoStructures and bioSystems at Surfaces". He graduated in Physics in 1976 at the University of Rome. From 1978 to 1982 he was active as post-doc and assistant at the Department of Theoretical Physics of the Free University in Berlin (Germany). From 1982 to 1984 researcher at the University of Calabria (Italy). 1984 he went to the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia (Italy). His research activity has mainly focused on the theory of low-dimensional- and nano- systems. In recent years the central topic of his research has been, in particular, the investigation of the structural, electronic and optical properties of semiconductor nanostructures.
