Ghenadii Korotcenkov received his PhD in physics and technology of semiconductor materials and devices in 1976 and his doctor of science degree (doctor habilitate) in physics of semiconductors and dielectrics in 1990. He has more than 50 years’ experience as a teacher and scientific researcher. He was a leader of the gas sensor group and the manager of various national and international scientific and engineering projects carried out in the Laboratory of Micro- and Optoelectronics, Technical University of Moldova, Chisinau, Moldova. International foundations and programs such as the CRDF, the MRDA, the ICTP, the INTAS, the INCO-COPERNICUS, the COST, and NATO have supported his research. From 2007 to 2008, he carried out his research as an invited scientist at the Korea Institute of Energy Research (Daejeon). Then, from 2008 to 2018, he was a research professor in the School of Materials Science and Engineering at Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology (GIST) in Korea. Currently, Dr. Korotcenkov is a chief scientific researcher at Moldova State University, Chisinau, Moldova.

Dr. Korotcenkov's early research focused on the study of Schottky barriers, MOS structures, native oxides, and photoreceivers based on III–Vs compounds such as InP, GaP, AlGaAs, and InGaAs. His research interests since 1995 include materials science, focusing on metal oxide film deposition and characterization (In2O3, SnO2, ZnO, TiO2), surface science, thermoelectric conversion, and design of physical and chemical sensors, including thin-film gas sensors.

Dr. Korotcenkov is the author or editor of 45 books and special issues, including the 11-volume Chemical Sensors series published by Momentum Press, the 2-volume Handbook of Gas Sensor Materials published by Springer, the 3-volume Porous Silicon published by CRC Press, the 3-volume Handbook of Humidity Measurement published by CRC Press, the 3-volume Handbook of II-VI Semiconductor-based Sensors and Radiation Detectors published by Springer, and six proceedings of international conferences published by Trans Tech Publications, Elsevier, and EDP Sciences. Currently he is series editor of Metal Oxides published by Elsevier, with 35 volumes published within this series since 2017.

Dr. Korotcenkov is the author and coauthor of more than 650 scientific publications, including 31 review papers, 38 book chapters, more than 200 peer-reviewed articles published in scientific journals (h-factor=43 (Web of Science), h=44 (Scopus), and h=59 (Google Scholar), as of 2022). He is the holder of 17 patents. He has presented more than 250 reports at national and international conferences, including 17 invited talks. Dr. Korotcenkov, as a cochair or member of program, scientific, and steering committees, has participated in the organization of more than 40 international scientific conferences. He is a member of the editorial boards of five scientific international journals. His name and activities have been listed by many biographical publications, including Who’s Who, and he has also been listed in the Stanford University World’s Top 2% Scientists in Applied Physics/Analytical Chemistry in the Physics and Astronomy Cluster. His research activities have been honored by the National Prize of the Republic of Moldova (2022), the Honorary Diploma of the Government of the Republic of Moldova (2020), an Award of the Academy of Sciences of Moldova (2019), and an Award of the Supreme Council of Science and Advanced Technology of the Republic of Moldova (2003); the Prize of the Presidents of the Ukrainian, Belarus, and Moldovan Academies of Sciences (2004); Senior Research Excellence Award of the Technical University of Moldova (2001; 2003; 2005); and the National Youth Prize of the Republic of Moldova in the field of science and technology (1980), among others. Some of his research results and published books have won awards at international exhibitions. Dr. Korotcenkov also received a fellowship from the International Research Exchange Board (IREX, United States, 1998), Brain Korea 21 Program (2008–2012), and BrainPool Program (Korea, 2007–2008 and 2015–2017). in new tab/window in new tab/window in new tab/window in new tab/window
