Research team is at present composed of 2 senior researchers with background in physics and 2 young researchers with background in engineering

Dr. Adrian Dinescu, Senior Researcher, head of laboratory (

Dr. Adrian  Dinescu, head of  Nano-scale structuring and characterization Laboratory, obtained the M.Sc. degree (1993) in solid state physics and the PhD degree (2010) in physics, both from University of Bucharest. Between 1993 and 1997 Adrian Dinescu was with the National Research Institute for Electronic Components, working in the field of optoelectronics components. Since 1997 he is with IMT Bucharest, where he is currently involved in the micro and nanoscale characterization using FE-SEM and in structuring at the nanoscale using Electron Beam Lithography. His expertise also includes materials processing, device fabrication and optoelectronics measurements. 

Dr. Adrian Dinescu has coordinated eight national research projects and was the coordinator from the Romanian part of one FP-7 international project - CATHERINE. He has co-authored about 20 papers in refereed international journals and more than 40 conference papers.

Phys. Raluca Gavrila, Senior Researcher (

Raluca Gavrila received the B.S. and  M.S in Physics from the University of Bucharest in 1987. From 1997 she is a research scientist at the National Institute for R&D in Microtechnologies (IMT Bucharest) in the Nano-scale structuring and characterization laboratory.

Her main research activities are in the field of nanoscale characterization of surfaces and interfaces by Scanning Probe Microscopy (SPM) and nano-indentation techniques. She is responsible for the SPM and nanomechanical testing Laboratory of  IMT-MINAFAB center in IMT Bucharest. She has coordinated several national projects and has authored and co-authored 19 ISI-indexed papers in academic journals and about 25 papers in ISI-indexed conference proceedings.
