Increasing miniaturization of devices, components, and integrated systems leads to development the microelectronic and optoelectronic elements with very low dimensions. However, sizes decreasing bring us to the novel technologies, nanotechnologies, and novel properties related with dimensions: photonic and plasmonic effects.

Technological methods based on thin films and various application of these technologies developed in the Microelectronics and Thin Films Laboratory of our HIT will be considered in the present lecture. Much attention will be paid to the novel alternative energy sources and to the bio-electronic application of nanotechnologies.

Dr. Alex Axelevitch, received the M.Sc. degree in electrical and electronics engineering from Electrical Engineering Institute (LETI), Leningrad, Russia, in 1971 and the Ph.D. degree in physical electronics from Tel-Aviv University, Tel-Aviv, Israel, in 2002.

Since 1995, he has been with Holon Institute of Technology (HIT). He is currently leads the Nanotechnology and Microelectronics Branch of the Engineering Faculty, the Laboratory of Microelectronics and Thin Films and works as the Senior Lecturer in faculty of Engineering in HIT. His main research interest includes thin films deposition methods, transition metal oxides, alternative energy sources, solar cells, plasmonic effects.

Dr. Axelevitch has eight patents, 65 referred articles and more 150 papers presented on scientific meetings.
