About Dmitri Tenne

Dr. Dmitri Tenne joined the faculty of the Department of Physics at Boise State University in 2006. He earned his Ph.D. from the Institute of Semiconductor Physics at the Russian Academy of Sciences in Novosibirsk, Russia in 1996.
Dr. Tenne is a prolific writer and presenter with over 70 technical papers in refereed journals, conference proceedings and book chapters, and over 40 presentations at international scientific meetings and seminars. Dr. Tenne has also served as a technical journal referee for Physical Review Letters, Physical Review B, Applied Physics Letters, Journal of Applied Physics,
Advanced Materials, and other international physics and materials science journals.
Dr. Tenne's current research interests include multifunctional oxide and semiconductor materials and nanostructures for electronic and optoelectronic applications: ferroelectric and multiferroic thin films and superlattices; semiconductor nanocrystals and quantum dots studied by optical spectroscopic techniques (Raman, infrared, UV, photoluminescence, and reflectivity).
