The research of Andrei Sirenko, PhD, a professor in the department of physics at New Jersey Institute of Technology, involves the application of spectroscopy in optics, condensed matter physics, and device materials physics. His areas of expertise include raman spectroscopy, infrared spectroscopy, hard x-ray synchrotron, and optical ellipsometry.
Sirenko and his research team have been developing novel approaches, using optical techniques, to characterize a new class of materials known as meta materials. These artificial materials have enormous applications including those in antennas, sensor detection, remote aerospace and energy management.
Sirenko uses synchrotron radiation at Brookhaven National Lab for his research. Recently, his group built a far-infrared ellipsometer to probe magnetic excitations in complex oxide materials. Sirenko’s research receives support from the National Science Foundation and the Department of Energy.
He has published 64 journal papers, 16 conference papers, and 995 citations as of September 2010. He has served as an enrollment advisor, on search committees, a peer reviewer, and as one of just two external representatives on the CHESS User Committee.
Sirenko received his PhD in experimental physics from the Ioffe Physical Technical Institute in St. Petersburg, Russia.
