F V Kusmartsev (FVK) is Head of Physics Department at Loughborough University (LU); a Professor of Condensed Matter Theory at LU; Fellow of the Institute Physics, UK; honorary professor of the L.D. Landau Institute for Theoretical Physics, Moscow and the Université Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris; a member of advisory and programme boards of many international meetings and Chairman of ESF Network-Programme: Arrays of Quantum Dots and Josephson Junctions (£500k) including 70 Universities from 16 EU countries. In 2004-2010 he secured funding for and organized more than 20 international meetings on nanoscience and nanotechnology, such as International Workshop on Terahertz Radiation and Metamaterials, (TERAMAT09) and published about 200 papers in high-impact journals (which have been cited more than 1400 times), more than 40 invited conference papers; Guest Editor of Journal of Physics A: Mathematics and General (2003); Superconducting Science and Technology(2008), Journal of Modern Physics B (2009); Invited Reviews in Physics Report (1989) and in Contemporary Physics (2004); Member of Editorial Board: Hyperion International Journal (since 2008) and Journal of Advances in Condensed Matter Physics (since 2007), edited a book “Condensed Matter Theories” 24 (2010) and co-inventor on 3 EU-UK patents in the field of superconducting devices, terahertz radiation and metamaterials. His current research focuses on investigations of different microwave and Terahertz devices made of various nanoparticles and nanostructures as well as made with new materials such as graphene, graphane and oxide superconductors.
