Research and Teaching
V. Mitin is an author of 14 patents, and more
than 240 publications in refereed journals.
He is a coauthor of five textbooks and four
monographs. He also published nine review papers.
Currently he is
working in the following areas: Nanoelectronic, Microelectric and
Optoelectronic Devices and Materials; Transport and Noise in
Heterostructures, Thin Films, Quantum Wells and Quantum Wires; Simulation,
Design and Testing of
Photodetectors, Terahertz Sensors and Solar Cells.
As a result of his research activity Dr.
Mitin has supervised on average ten researchers each semester since 1992
(visitors, postdocs, Ph.D. and MS students). He graduated 19 Ph.D students.
Developed and taught at the University at
Buffalo (UB) since Fall 2009 a new course “Quantum Mechanics for
Engineers: First Course in Nanoelectronics”. The course development
was supported by NSF CCLI/TUES program. The text “Quantum Mechanics
for Nanostructures” that was prepared for the course is published by
Cambridge University Press in June 2010. Developed and taught since
September 2007 a new Nanotechnology laboratory course for undergraduates at
UB. Developed and taught at UB since January 2005 semester a new course
“Nanotechnology, Engineering and Science”. The course
development was supported by NSF program on Nanotechnology Undergraduate Education.
The text “Introduction to Nanoelectronics: Nanotechnology,
Engineering, Science, and Applications” that was prepared for the
course is published by Cambridge University Press in February 2008. Updated
and taught during Spring 2004 semester a course EE 538 “Quantum
Heterostructures and Devices” for graduate students at UB. Updated
and taught all graduate courses in Solid State Electronics at Wayne State University.
The course “Solid State Electronics II” was developed to the
stage of a textbook "Introduction to Solid State Electronics"
which was published by the Addison-Wesley Publishing Company in August
1996. The course “Advanced Solid State Electronics I” was
completed as a textbook "Quantum Heterstructures: Microelectronics and
Optoelectronics" that was published by Cambridge University Press in
1999. Introduced and taught new graduate course –
“Computational Electronics”. New course in Electronic and
Photonic Materials was developed under the support of NSF and a course pack
was prepared. Taught undergraduate course “Electromagnetic Fields and
Waves”. By a team of three professors a new course
“Mathematical Methods in Engineering” was developed and a
textbook “Modern Advanced Mathematics for Engineers” was published
by John Wiley & Sons in March, 2001.
V. Mitin delivered more than seventy invited
talks at National and International Conferences.
