Valentyn Novosad

Valentyn Novosad is a staff scientist at Argonne’s Materials Science Division. He completed his Ph.D. studies at the Verkin Institute for Low Temperature Physics & Engineering, Kharkov, Ukraine, and Laboratoire de Magnétisme Louis Néel, Grenoble, France, in 1998, where he was studying diffraction magneto-optical Kerr effects. During 1998–2001 he was a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Materials Science, Graduate School of Engineering, Tohoku University, where he studied geometric confinement effects in ferromagnetic dot arrays. Valentyn’s current research interests cover the areas of magnetic and superconducting films, patterned heterostructures, and microdevices.
