Head of Raman Spectroscopy Laboratory
Institute for Theoretical Physics
Technical University Bergakademie Freiberg, Germany
Dr. rer. nat. habil. Cameliu Himcinschi studied Physics at “Babes-Bolyai” University Cluj-Napoca, Romania (1992-1997). He received his Ph.D. in experimental physics at Chemnitz University of Technology, Germany in 2003. He carried out a post-doctoral work at Max-Plank Institute of Microstructure Physics in Halle, Germany (2005-2007) in the field of strained Silicon, followed by a post-doc at Chemnitz University of Technology (2007-2009) where the focus of his research was on organic semiconductors.
Since 2009 he is the head of the Raman Laboratory at the Technical University Bergakademie Freiberg, Germany.
In 2015 he received Julius-Weisbach Award of the TU Bergakademie Freiberg for exemplary performances as researcher and outstanding teaching.
In 2020 he obtained the habilitation at Technical University Bergakademie Freiberg with the topic “Raman spectroscopy: from ferroelastic domain identification to strain tuning”.
He is author or co-author of more than 100 papers published in peer reviewed journals.
His research interest focuses on multiferroic and ferroelectric thin films, thermoelectric materials, semiconductors, and other complex oxides materials.
