About the Author

Svetlana Kilina received her BSc and MSc in physics from Belarus State University in 1996 and taught physics to both college and high school students in Belarus, including preparing gifted children to compete in the National Physics Olympics. She then spent three years at Chemnitz University of Technology in Germany as a research assistant studying transport properties of disordered interacting electrons. After coming to the United States in 2000, she was employed as a math and science tutor at the University of Oregon. From 2003, she has been pursuing a PhD in physical chemistry at the University of Washington. During her PhD studies, she has also had an opportunity to work as a graduate research assistant at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico, getting internships for summer 2005 and spring/summer 2006 and 2007. Her research focuses on photoinduced electron-phonon dynamics in nanoscale systems, such as quantum dots, carbon nanotubes, conjugated polymers and DNA materials.


"This book brings a wonderful collection of works in the area of quantum chemistry calculations devoted to the optical properties of quantum dots and carbon nanotubes. Optics is one of the most promising fields for the understanding of both materials science and innovations in nanotechnology. Kilina's book illustrates the great scientific development made possible by nanoscience."
