Vytautas Grivickas was born in Kaunas, Lithuania,
He received the diploma of Physicist and of Physics Teacher at Vilnius University in 1972
and the Ph.D. degree in Physics (Nonequilibrium photoelectric processes in silicon at high excitation level under charge transport, 1978), also at Vilnius University.
Then he continued working at Vilnius University in research laboratories on various recombination and semiconductor material modification projects, while presently he is a senior researcher at Institute of Material Research and Applied Sciences of Vilnius University.
In eighties and nineties Dr. Grivickas was spending a few extensive periods at Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden and one in Sao Paulo University, Institute of Chemistry and Physics in Sao Carlos, Brazil as a visiting professor.
Dr. Grivickas has authored more than 100 papers and about 60 presentations in conferences.
Field of scientific
His current research interests are carrier recombination, transport and optical aspects of indirect band gap semiconductor materials (Si, silicon carbide and Si nano structures).
