Marko SpasenovićAssociate Research Professor
I work as an Associate Research Professor (Research Fellow) at IHTM – the Institute for Chemistry, Technology and Metallurgy in Belgrade, as part of the Center for Microelectronic Technologies (CMT). The main lines of my research are sensors based on 2D materials and graphene microphones. Prior to this post, I was Assistant Research Professor at the Institute of Physics in Belgrade. I completed my undergraduate education in Engineering Physics at Carleton University in Canada, followed by a MSc in Physics at the University of Toronto, where I researched ultrafast photocurrent generation in semiconductors (supervised by prof. Henry van Driel). I completed my PhD at AMOLF in Amsterdam and the University of Twente, the Netherlands, with a thesis on near-field mapping of optical fields in photonic and plasmonic waveguides (supervised by prof. Kobus Kuipers). Subsequently, I held two postdoc positions at ICFO near Barcelona, Spain, where I worked on plasmons in graphene (prof. Frank Koppens) and laser trapping and cooling of levitated dielectric nanoparticles in vacuum (prof. Romain Quidant).
