About the Author

Leonid Khriachtchev graduated from Leningrad State University, Russia, in 1981. He completed his PhD study in Quantum Electronics in 1986 and became a senior scientist and a group leader in 1988 at the Institute of Physics of the same university. That time, his research mainly dealt with resonant light pressure and optical pumping of the ground state of atoms in the gas phase and laser technique. In 1994, he joined the University of Helsinki, Finland, and he is currently with the Laboratory of Physical Chemistry of this university. His scientific interests include experimental optical and laser spectroscopy of matrix-isolated species and nanoscale materials. He has contributed to the construction of new chemical bonds, including the first argon chemical compound, HArF, and light-induced conformational changes at low temperatures. Optical and structural studies of silicon nanocrystals have been another important part of this research activity. He is the editor of the book Silicon Nanophotonics: Basic Principles, Present Status, and Perspectives, (World Scientific Publishing, 2008). He is the author of about 180 refereed articles.


"This book covers many topics involving low-temperature chemistry and physics. It ranges from fundamental investigations of weakly coupled systems, complicated chemical systems and low-temperature processes occurring in the outer solar system and beyond. It is very a comprehensive compilation and should be required reading for graduate students or scientists and engineers who are interested in working in these fascinating areas."
--Prof. Thomas M. Orlando, Georgia Institute of Technology, USA
